What to Expect

The Integral Powertrain graduate scheme lasts for 24 months. We believe this is enough time to make sure you are fully equipped to take on “real life challenges” and while you are training you will also get paid for it… quite competitively.

As a fresh graduate, you may not realise what your strengths are. We will therefore seek to unlock your full potential by making sure you experience every engineering department, including Development, Design, Software and Analysis. This provides you with the opportunity to take on responsibility very quickly, while getting involved in exciting projects and tasks.

Development

During the development stage of the graduate scheme, you will work alongside experienced engineers in developing and implementing test procedures.

You will be given opportunities to use your skills and knowledge acquired during your engineering degree by getting involved in supporting the development of quality and validation processes, demonstrating through validation testing and system/features that projects meet all specified requirements.

Design

The design stage of the graduate scheme teaches you how to apply and interpret geometric, dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and how to design components, systems and products using software tools such as CATIA and other design packages.

Under the guidance of experienced engineers you will investigate mechanical failures or unexpected problems and be encouraged to provide potential solutions.

Software

From the beginning of this stage, you will get involved in model based controls and software development.

You will be asked to use software verification and validation techniques such as MiL, SiL & HiL as well as undertaking programming integration of auto generated embedded software.

Analysis

You will be given the skills and knowledge during this stage of the scheme to allow you to make an impact on the department as soon as you join the team. Having the knowledge of systems such as Abaqus and SIMULIA you will have confidence to interpret and analyse simulation results and data, and make recommendations to design.

What We Expect from You

As well as an outstanding academic record in an Engineering or related scientific subject, you will be creative and have a forward-thinking mentality as well as great passion for automotive engineering.

For us, it is important that your values match those of Integral Powertrain. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates whose personal values match those of the company.
