Electro-mechanical engineer apprenticeship

Electro-mechanical engineer apprenticeship

Solve real-world problems using a combination of mechanical and electrical engineering

Found in many engineering sectors involving design, manufacture and research and development, you could find yourself working in areas such as aerospace, rail, automotive, defence, electronics, robotics, cybernetics, marine and renewable energy. Projects you could work on could include designing a better wind turbine, ensuring a passenger plane can land safely, creating a robotic arm for surgery, developing a self-driving car or producing a drone to deliver parcels. This kind of problem solving requires a mixture of skills in design, testing, analysis, reporting, verification, safety assessment, quality assurance, project management and delivering to time and cost. Daily duties during the electro-mechanical engineer apprenticeship could include interacting with stakeholders, project managers and technical specialists. You’ll typically work in an office or laboratory within normal office hours.
