Role: Mechanical Engineer

Dvision: Submarine

Design, develop and test complex mechanical systems and turn ideas into products. You’ll learn how to generate concept ideas and turn them into viable solutions, gaining experience of 3D modelling and analysis tools that will help you factor in considerations including materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance.

As a Mechanical Engineer you’ll be the one who turns ideas into products.  You’ll be involved in the design, development and testing of the complex mechanical systems.  In the early stages of a project, you’ll apply scientific principles and technical information to generate concept ideas.  After this you will select the most suitable design and turn it into a viable solution.  Through 3D modelling and a range of analysis tools, you’ll create a detailed design of the product that factors into considerations such as materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance to name just a few.  Our military and commercial programmes require us to push our capabilities and technologies to the limit of what is achievable today.  This raises many challenges for the system as it must ultimately meet our customers’ stringent safety requirements and bring leading edge performance to give competitive advantage wherever applied

  • Supporting the design and optimisation of system architectures and solutions using system modelling techniques
  • Facilitating successful integration of systems and sub-systems
  • Identifying and managing interfaces and dependencies 
  • Identifying and mitigating failure modes
  • Determining the emergent properties of a system to support trade-offs, optimisation, risk reduction and testing
  • Defining the verification and validation approach in order to achieve certification and acceptance of the system
  • Supporting the identification of safety hazards and the assessment and mitigation of safety risk
  • Providing systems engineering support to project and functional teams
  • Conduct all activities in a professional manner delivering systems engineering tasks to agreed time, cost and quality to meet project milestones
  • Drafting technical reports or other documents relevant to, or required by, a particular task in order to ensure that information can be successfully communicated with recipients
  • Maintain accurate records of all work in accordance with relevant extant procedures 
  • Liaise with MOD establishments, test facilities, sub-contractors, suppliers and customers as required
