About the programme

Mechanical Engineering is not one area, but many. Over the course of two to four years, you’ll get to experience the breadth of our work. You might be tackling submarine design projects or warship refits. Equally, you might be working on complex marine projects, fleet maintenance or nuclear programmes. The possibilities are incredibly varied.

Mechanical Engineering at Babcock

You could work in anything from mechanical design right through to manufacture, installation and decommissioning. Equally, you could work on analysis and problem-solving for existing equipment or systems. What’s not in doubt is that there will be plenty of onsite work, such as implementing designs, finding solutions to installation issues, and liaising with designers and office-based engineers. You’ll also get involved in project management too, engaging with stakeholders, planning delivery and ensuring projects run to budget and programme.

What you'll need

  • 2:2 BEng (Hons) degree is vital. And because the programme may be accredited by the IMechE, IET, RINA (RP) and IMarEST, it is desirable that your degree is accredited by one of those institutions too
  • To be able to satisfy the MoD’s security requirements (you may need to complete a medical assessment)

What you'll get

When you’re part of the team at Babcock, we think it’s only right that you’re properly rewarded for the contribution you make and the hard work you put in. That’s why, in addition to a highly competitive salary, you can look forward to generous pension and employee share schemes, and a whole host of other flexible benefits. These include things like access to our healthcare cash plan, Wellbeing Centre and discounts on everything from gym membership and travel to retail, dining and entertainment. You’ll also have the chance to get involved in our STEM outreach and volunteering activities, which our graduates find incredibly rewarding in all sorts of other ways.
