Design Engineer

Virtual reality technology transforms design of UK warships
Are you interested in regularly facing and solving challenging engineering problems?
Joining us as a Design Engineer will develop you as an individual and give you the grounding for many rewarding career opportunities.
 
From the latest technology of the Type 45 Destroyer, to the next generation of the UK’s nuclear submarines, the Successor class, the projects in which you will be involved set new standards, forming the backbone of the UK’s defence capabilities for decades to come.
 
 
Your main responsibilities as a Design Engineer:
 
BAE Systems designs, manufactures, and maintains products including ships, submarines, and military vehicles. As a Design Engineer, you will be involved in developing CAD models, drawings, and supporting calculations.
 
You will be carrying out relatively complex technical surveys and investigations, including the evaluation and selection of technical options. You will be producing technical reports and guidance packages to help resolve problems and improve engineering capability.
 
 
Your skills and qualifications:
 
Your qualifications will include a HNC/HND (or similar) level qualification in an engineering discipline.
 
You will have a working knowledge of a CAD package such as AutoCAD, Foran, Catia, or CADS5.
 
You will also meet the requirements for registration as an Engineering Technician with the Engineering Council and preferably be a member of a relevant professional body, on the way to becoming an Incorporated Engineer. Knowledge of AUTOCAD and Microsoft Applications will also be useful.
 

Marine experience will clearly be a plus, but whatever your track record, high levels of technical expertise, personal drive and strong communication skills are particularly important. So if you are a mechanical, electrical, combat system or structural Design Engineer, with a range of specialist skills - or if you're from a manufacturing or test and commissioning background, join us in a role you'll be proud to call your own.
