Programme Duration – 4 Years
Qualification – BEng (Hons) Applied Professional Engineering Programme
Salary – Circa £20,000
Over the duration of your apprenticeship you will get to work on ground-breaking projects, alongside expert minds and become one yourself thanks to your studies at the prestigious University of Warwick.
Real-world experience. Academic recognition. Getting the best of both worlds means you’ll jump ahead of your peers. Plus, the theory you learn here throughout your time spent at the University of Warwick, which will be typically one week out of six, means you’ll make an ever-greater contribution and have some in-demand skills.
Electrical and Electronics
Electronics is the driving force behind most of the innovation happening in modern vehicles. You can find electronic parts, in most, if not all active components of our products from sensors and actuators inside traditionally mechanical components like dampers all the way up to sophisticated, purely electric propulsion systems.
Electrical and Electronics engineers in Jaguar Land Rover are involved in a number of roles. Roles include the development of custom-made components for our products, testing and validation of electronic systems, development of high voltage propulsion electronics, autonomous driving and more. As an Electrical and Electronics engineer you will learn a variety of different skills including electronics circuit design, power electronics, embedded safety critical system design, programming and a lot more.
To ensure the delivery of quality vehicles product compliance is high on our agenda. As an Apprentice in this area you will develop an understanding of the end to end process from regulations being issued through certification to conformity of production and investigations. You will gain experience in both the emissions and non-emissions elements of compliance and will work with both internal and external stakeholders to ensure that the certification delivery plan is developed and maintained.
The Supplier Technical Assistance (STA) team is responsible for supplier quality across our vehicle portfolio. They interact with most part that goes into our cars, with the focus of delivering excellence. As an apprentice in this area you will have the opportunity to be involved in almost every aspect of one of our cars’ life cycle. There are many stakeholders (including our suppliers) that collaborate to create our products, and you will gain exposure to many of these through structured placements.
The Applied Professional Engineering Apprenticeship (Level 6) is a four-year programme, where you earn whilst you learn.
During Year one and two, apprentices will spend their time in off the job training provided by the University of Warwick and also within the workplace.
In Year three and four you will study specialised subjects in line with your chosen pathway. Your final year of your apprenticeship will see you complete your end-point assessment and achieve your Level 6 Apprenticeship, ready for an amazing career in a permanent role within Engineering.
Specialism Modules (Year 1 & 2)
Personal Skills for Professional Excellence, Engineering Mathematics, Mechanics and Energy Methods, Electrical and Electronic Systems 1, Applied Engineering Design + Technical Operations Management, Quality methods, Workshop Skills + DFM + MMP, Industrial Digitalisation, Engineering Systems, Dynamic Mechanics & Thermofluids, instrumentation & Control, Numerical Methods for Modelling, Project Management & Leadership and CAD/CAM.
Specialism Modules (Year 3 & 4)
Advanced Quality Techniques, Mechatronics & Systems Controls, Networking Infrastructure Communication and Interoperability of Systems, Electronics Design & Development Principles, Electrical & Electronic Systems, Sustainable Energy Systems, Materials for Advanced Applications, Functional Systems.
Following the successful completion of your Apprenticeship you could find yourself working in one of the following areas: Vehicle & Electrical Engineering, Powertrain, Product Engineering Operations, Quality or Supplier Technical Assistance.
GCSE Maths and English Language at level 5 (C) or higher and in addition 3 additional GCSEs level 5 (C) or above to include one STEM subject or Engineering Vocational qualification level 3/ 90 credits/540 GLH or higher.
In addition A level Maths at grade B or higher and a second A level at grade C or above in Physics; Chemistry; Engineering or Design & Technology.
If you do not have or are not studying for A levels but you believe that your qualifications are equivalent, please contact us at email@example.com to discuss before you submit an application.
In addition to these academic requirements at the assessment stage we will also look for evidence of other qualifications, knowledge, experience or qualities – for example a third A-level or other further academic qualifications; a substantial time in employment or voluntary activity; a technical project or hobby or substantial responsibilities as a carer.
We will also be looking for you to demonstrate your passion for the role and explain your motivation for wanting to join our Applied Professional Engineer Programme as a degree apprentice.
Rewards and Benefits
Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach in your work. And, with on-going support from industry leading experts and continual learning opportunities, you’ll quickly realise that our programmes have been designed to be as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce.
Whichever part of the business you join your hard work and contribution deserves recognition. Our salaries are competitive, and we will also pay for your tuition and course fees and give you a generous holiday allowance as part of your package. You will be able to access a range of deals and discounts from various retailers and sports clubs.
And there are regular social events so plenty of chances to make friends and have fun too.
If you want to become a world class engineer and you have the tenacity to match, then Electrical and Electronics is the team for you!
