The activities in this area are many and varied, and Babcock’s wide range of engineering projects and industrial sites mean you’ll never be far from your next challenge.
You might be helping us; dock a 16,000 tonne nuclear submarine, assess aircraft carrier flight deck structure for F35 Lightning landing loads, analyse mooring arrangements for Type 31 frigates, design systems to withstand wartime explosive events or define the stability requirements for surfacing a nuclear submarine through the polar ice cap. What’s certain is that you’ll work alongside – and learn from – over 300 of the most respected naval architects and structural engineers in the world.
You’ll learn how to analyse and design various aspects of floating vessels and structures, including hull form, arrangement, stability, structures, resistance, propulsion and human factors. In the process, you’ll be making a real contribution to the wider business. Previous graduates have worked on everything from naval ships, in service or decommissioned submarines to small boats, and commercial vessels and platforms. They have helped us develop unmanned surface vessel support solutions and even been involved in next generation submarine pre-concept engineering.
Within Babcock you’ll also have opportunities to further the field of Naval Architecture through research, attendance and presenting at industry recognised conferences. We place a strong emphasis on continuous professional development with support throughout your career to help you progress towards Chartered Engineer status and we have close links with both professional and academic institutions within the field.
