On a Summer Internship, over 12 weeks, an individual would be expected to be involved in a number of areas in order to develop a broad understanding of a Mechanical Engineer role. 

As a Mechanical Engineer you will design, develop and test complex mechanical systems and turn ideas into products. You’ll learn how to generate concept ideas and turn them into viable solutions, gaining experience of 3D modelling and analysis tools that will help you factor in considerations including materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance.
 

As a Mechanical Engineer you’ll be the one who turns ideas into products.  You’ll be involved in the design, development and testing of the complex mechanical systems.  

In the early stages of a project, you’ll apply scientific principles and technical information to generate concept ideas.  After this you will select the most suitable design and turn it into a viable solution.  

Through 3D modelling and a range of analysis tools, you’ll create a detailed design of the product that factors into considerations such as materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance to name just a few.  Our military and commercial programmes require us to push our capabilities and technologies to the limit of what is achievable today.

This raises many innovations for the system as it must ultimately meet our customers’ stringent safety requirements and bring leading edge performance to give substantial advantage wherever applied

Follow your passion with the following responsibilities:
This may include:
• Supporting the development of strategies to ensure that systems are designed and integrated so that they fully satisfy the customer and business needs/requirements
• Capturing and analysing requirements in order to understand the customer/business needs and the context in which the system will be used
• Supporting the design and optimisation of system architectures and solutions using system modelling techniques
• Facilitating successful integration of systems and sub-systems
• Identifying and managing interfaces and dependencies 
• Identifying and mitigating failure modes
• Understanding the emergent properties of a system to support trade-offs, optimisation, risk reduction and testing
• Defining the verification and validation approach in order to achieve certification and acceptance of the system
• Supporting the identification of safety hazards and the assessment and mitigation of safety risk
• Providing systems engineering support to project and functional teams
• Conduct all activities in a professional manner delivering systems engineering tasks to agreed time, cost and quality to meet project milestones
 

What we require:
As a minimum requirement you’ll need to have obtained, or be predicted to obtain, a 2.2 in your Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

Qualification requirements: Mechanical Engineering, or a related Engineering degree covering Mechanics, Dynamics and Vibration, Structures and Stress, Thermodynamics, Mechanical Systems, and Product Design.

What we have on offer for you! 
Take your first steps in a career that motivates, rewards and evolves. At BAE Systems you’ll be working on exciting, world-leading engineering and business projects from day one. 

Our graduate scheme will prepare you with the skills you need to navigate situations that bring others to a standstill. We will help you make the very most of your talents. We place great importance not only on what we do, but how and why we do it. 

We are passionate, collaborative, and take pride in work that helps our customers and communities. Working for BAE Systems, you’ll go home at the end of each day knowing what you do really makes a difference.

Working with us:
At BAE we want to be the leading employer in defence and security for valuing diversity and inclusion. We care about difference in all forms and want to create an inclusive environment where everyone can be themselves and reach their full potential.
 
We welcome candidates from all backgrounds and particularly from sections of the community who are currently under-represented within our industry, including women, people from ethnic minorities, people with disabilities and LGBTQ+ individuals. We also want to be a preferred home for veterans and reservists.

Upon successful completion of your placement year, you could receive a conditional offer to join BAE Systems as a Graduate and further your career (subject to performance and availability of suitable roles) without the need to reapply.
