Want to know how you can make the most of your Naval Architecture skillset?
Join us at BAE Systems and you’ll soon discover the benefits of working for a company at the forefront of the industry.
As a Naval Architect, you can be involved with a wide range of products. You could join BAE Systems Maritime Submarines, and work on the Astute class, which is the Royal Navy’s nuclear-powered attack submarines, as well as the Trident replacement programme, the Successor class. If you join BAE Systems Naval Ships, you could be working on the Type 26 Combat Ship, as well as the Type 45 Destroyers, currently in service in the UK.
With so many projects of national importance to play a part in, this is a job of which you can be truly proud.
Your main responsibilities as a Naval Architect:
As a Naval Architect, you will be involved in carrying out analyses and investigations including hydrodynamics, resistance, propulsion, sea keeping, and manoeuvring. As well as doing some of this work yourself, you will also be tasked with overseeing work done by sub-contractors.
As well as the design of new products, you can also be involved in refits and operational support to existing vessels, giving you unique exposure to a broad array of naval architecture activities.
Your skills and qualifications:
You will have a degree (or equivalent) level qualification in Naval Architecture, or a closely related field such as Ship Science. Preferably, you would have gone on to gain a Master’s degree.
You will ideally have a desire to gain professional accreditation in your career such as Chartered Engineer (CEng), for which BAE Systems can provide support and guidance in achieving.
