About Us

As an island nation, the UK has a proud history of world-class naval engineering. As part of our UK Maritime Sector, Naval Ships designs, builds and delivers complex warships and combat systems and you could play a vital role in its future.
Our graduate and undergraduate opportunities span from engineering to project management to operations and supply chain. You could join us as a naval architect and help shape the future of the fleet for a generation to come or, as a software engineer, programming the systems that sailors will depend on.
We’ve got great projects for you to work on, like the Royal Navy’s new Offshore Patrol Vessels or the Type 26 Global Ship – a highly capable and versatile multi-mission warship designed to support anti-submarine warfare, air defence and general purpose operations anywhere on the world’s oceans.
Our combat systems are in operation in more than 20 countries around the world and this technology is vital in providing crew members with the information and capabilities they need to operate effectively, whether protecting the world’s shipping lanes or providing humanitarian relief.
We’re always looking to the future and we are committed to investing in our people to help them realise their career potential in an exciting and vibrant environment, working with the best talent in the industry.

Summer Internships

The real selling point of working for BAE Systems is being part of a team that will shape the future of the Royal Navy for years to come. I’m very fortunate to work with multiple partners, on the Type 26 project. This creates a great atmosphere of collaboration and inclusion.
