Diamond Power Specialty Ltd
As a Graduate Engineering Apprentice, you will build the skills and knowledge that Scottish industries need. You'll work, get paid, and at the end of your 4 years achieve a BEng (Hons) degree. You'll spend most of your time learning on the job but will also be a student at the University of Strathclyde enjoying all the benefits of being part of that University.
For further information please to go to the University of Strathclyde website and search for Graduate Apprenticeship.
An additional benefit is that not only will graduates have a BEng (Hons) degree like any full-time student, but by gaining appropriate engineering experience through your job and evidencing your work-based learning via the degree course you will also meet the requirements to apply for professional registration as an engineer (IEng status).
This approach offers a significantly quicker route to apply for professional registration since full time engineering students are typically required to work a number of years post-graduation before they have sufficient engineering experience to apply for professional registration.
The successful applicant will be working in a real business and will be expected to contribute to the team performance and ultimately the success of the business. While you learn, you will be employed by Diamond Power Specialty Ltd and whilst majority of the week will be spent in the workplace, there will be some study time each week. You will have to be prepared to study in your own time during evenings and weekends and will have to have the self-discipline and maturity to manage your own time appropriately.
