Degree – Manufacturing Engineer – Barrow
This listing has expired
As a Manufacturing Degree Apprentice at BAE Systems you will work within either our Mechanical Engineering or Manufacturing Engineering teams, playing a pivotal role in the planning and smooth delivery of the UK’s national sub-sea deterrent.
What Does The Apprenticeship Involve?
If you are selected for the Manufacturing Engineering route, this is based on core industrial engineering and mechanical engineering skills – integrating various facilities and systems in order to produce quality products. The role operates between Engineering and Operations and interprets the Engineering outputs, such as drawings, tooling and documentation in order that Operations can undertake the build of the submarines efficiently and effectively.
If you are selected for the Mechanical Engineering route, this is the area that turns ideas into products. Mechanical engineers are involved in the design, development and testing of complex mechanical systems. In the early stages of a project, they apply scientific principles and technical information to generate concept ideas. After this, they select the most suitable design and turn it into a viable solution. Through 3D modelling and a range of analysis tools, they create a detailed design that factors in considerations such as materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance.
What Qualification Will You Get?
Manufacturing Engineer Level 6
How Will I Be Rewarded?

Overview of Business Unit
Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.
Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.
We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year
Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers.
