Aerospace engineer apprenticeship

Develop and create aircraft components and equipment

During the aerospace engineer apprenticeship, you’ll learn how to comply with statutory regulations and organisational safety requirements, and use and interpret engineering data and documentation such as engineering drawings, reports and computer-generated models. Working both individually and as part of an engineering team, often made up of several disparate engineering disciplines, you’ll design, develop, specify, analyse, test, validate and modify designs and solutions to satisfy customer requirements. This apprenticeship is designed to offer stretch and progression, as you’ll develop into an engineer who is able to take responsibility for the quality, accuracy and timely delivery of your own work. On completion, you’ll achieve a bachelor’s degree.
