Each placement is specifically tailored to meet the unique requirements of individual graduates. Clear responsibilities are outlined before the commencement of each placement, aligning with various competency requirements defined by the IMechE and IET. Having run our graduate scheme for over twenty years we have built solid relationships with our partner organisations across the industry; and you will be well supported throughout the two years.
