A real job.
Immersed in technology.

Immersed in technology.

At the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology, you’re an engineer from day one. Tough projects. Real responsibilities. You’ll learn about engineering through hands-on experience and work alongside a team of Dyson Technology experts three days of the week.

 

With Dyson’s expertise across motors, fluid dynamics, separation systems, energy storage, robotics, software and hair science, you’ll have the chance to work within a number of technical disciplines. During the programme you may also get the opportunity to work in our Bristol software hub, our Hullavington site (Dyson’s second UK technology campus), and our technology and design centres in Singapore and Malaysia.

 

You’ll be working work alongside Dyson technology experts for three days of the week. The rest of the week will be dedicated to your studies. You’ll start on a salary of £18,000 per annum, increasing each year. You’ll also be eligible for the bonus scheme and staff discounts. With no tuition fees to pay, you could come away from your engineering degree debt-free.

 

For the work-based element of the programme you will work to the Product Design and Development Engineer apprenticeship standard  and will demonstrate your work-based competencies through a portfolio and end point assessment.

Tough projects. Real responsibilities.
