Power and propulsion gas turbine engineer apprenticeship

Power and propulsion gas turbine engineer apprenticeship

Design, develop, operate and maintain gas turbine systems

Working in the energy and power, aerospace and defence industries, you’ll apply specialist skills in mechanical or aircraft propulsion engineering as you strive to improve the reliability, efficiency and emissions of the engine you are working on. During the power and propulsion gas turbine engineer apprenticeship you’ll work alongside specialists in engineering design and operations. You’ll mainly be office-based, but may need to be present during the assembly of components to form the engine. You’ll prepare, implement and monitor project plans, project risk registers, project priorities and any formal deliverables. As well as learning the core requirements, you will specialise in either aircraft propulsion or rotating machinery applications. In aircraft propulsion you will design and test jet engine systems and components of the engine system. In rotating machinery applications you’ll manage technical and economic issues regarding gas turbines in land and sea applications
