Applied Intelligence – Engineering Industrial Placement

There’s no need to wait until you graduate to start your career in software engineering. We offer 1 year Industrial Placements across our London, Gloucester and Leeds sites.

The programme offers valuable industry experience, enabling you to develop lifelong skills and a broad understanding of the work we do. 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.

Your Learning and Development

As an Engineering Industrial Placement student, you will work as a part of a project team, alongside skilled and experienced individuals who are motivated to train and coach you on the day-to-day skills required to work closely with our customers, both internal and external. You will learn the tools, techniques and approaches used by engineering professionals and apply them in a controlled environment to ensure projects are delivered on time, to quality and to budget.

Industrial Placement student will support their team to ensure that engineering practices are followed on all aspects of project definition and delivery.

This role will also include developing an understanding of the core values, organisational structure and working practices of BAE Systems Applied Intelligence.

What you'll need

As an Industrial Placement student, we expect you to be ready to tackle (and enjoy!) programming tasks from the outset, but we will take the time to mentor you through smaller packages of work and enhancements to our product range. You will work primarily in Java or C++ however we always look for the best framework for the job; some of our developments use c# .net and html5 technologies.

For our Software Engineering Industrial Placement role, you must be on course for at least a 2:2 Bachelor's degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths subject.
