Working at The Dyson Institute

Working at The Dyson Institute

James Dyson established The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology in 2016.

 

Our vision is to become the best engineering university in the world and develop the engineering leaders of the future.  But first, we need to become an independent higher education provider with our own degree awarding powers.

 

To make this vision a reality, we need exceptional people – academic and operational staff who are passionate about providing revolutionary education to aspiring engineers. And we’re recruiting now.

  • Our story

    Engineers invent, design and build technology that makes the world better. However, by 2025, Britain could be short of 1.8 million engineers. James Dyson knew this would be a huge problem, so he decided to open a different kind of engineering university, here at Dyson. One where Undergraduate Engineers work in our world-leading RDD team, alongside their studies.

    The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology welcomed its first cohort in 2017. Since then, in partnership with the University of Warwick, we have enrolled 75 brilliant Undergraduate Engineers onto our general engineering degree. Recruitment for our third cohort is underway.

  • What we do

    Our programme of study offers students the opportunity to work for a renowned global brand, whilst studying for a degree. All of which is underpinned by exceptional student support. The Undergraduate Engineers are taught in state-of-the-art labs and teaching spaces held within Dyson’s core engineering campus, and work on real Dyson projects. They earn a salary, and have no tuition fees to pay. On successful completion of their four-year degree, there could be the opportunity to work for Dyson full-time.

    We are a small institution, focused on the quality of our provision. With a full complement of students, The Dyson Institute will have four cohorts enrolled with approximately 40 students in each year. And we need people to support them during their time here. If you want to make a real impact on the academic experience and careers of talented, driven young people, search for a role now.

  • Our Campus

    The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology is based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, where it sits alongside Dyson’s 4,600-strong UK based workforce. This campus is the epicentre of Dyson’s research and new product development. Our dedicated, state-of-the-art lecture rooms and laboratories are in the heart of Dyson’s Research, Design and Development (RDD) spaces – making it the perfect place for educating the UK’s future engineering leaders.

  • Academic staff

    The Dyson Institute’s engineering degree covers mechanical, electronics and software engineering. Teaching is currently delivered by The University of Warwick. However, we are applying for new degree awarding powers, with a view to delivering and awarding our own engineering degree from September 2020. To do this, we are looking to build our own world-class teaching department.

    We’re searching for outstanding educators with a passion for developing aspiring engineers. You would be responsible for the development of our academic course content, teaching and assessment methodologies. The roles are teaching-focused, with the average class size being around 40 students. You’ll also have research and/or engineering delivery opportunities as the programme develops, along with an academic training programme.

  • Undergraduate experience staff

    At The Dyson Institute, we put equal emphasis on academia, the workplace, wellbeing and professional development. We believe this approach will create the best engineering graduates.

    Our Undergraduate experience team scaffold the academic and work-based learning of our students with exceptional support. This team plays a vital role ensuring the health and wellbeing of students, adjusting our approach according to collective and individual feedback from the student body.

    As an ambitious institution, we are looking to consistently enhance the overall personal, academic and professional experience of our students. As part of our Undergraduate experience team, you’ll have the opportunity to influence the growth of The Dyson Institute and to shape the experience of its Undergraduates.

  • Working here

    As a member of The Dyson Institute team, you’ll be able to build strong relationships with Undergraduates and colleagues. You will have a real and tangible impact on our students’ future and that of The Dyson Institute. This is a fast-paced, rewarding and innovative place to work. Among other benefits, as a member of our team, you’ll receive:

    - Performance related bonus
    - Discount on Dyson machines
    - Subsidised cafés on campus
    - Free gym, exercise classes and sports hall on campus

    This is a unique opportunity to be part of a close-knit team in an exciting and emerging higher education provider.
