Training & Profiles
We are OPEN NOW for applications; with dates that you can start the DESG Graduate Scheme beginning in September / October 2014!
We are proud to offer graduates the opportunity to join what is probably the very best graduate development scheme for engineers and scientists in the UK: The Ministry of Defence, Defence Engineering and Science Graduate Scheme.
Our prestigious graduate scheme is accredited by: IET, IMechE, RINA, IoP, RAeS and ICE and has been an industry leader for almost thirty years, launching hundreds of graduates into satisfying careers in engineering and science.
It is because of our requirement to safeguard the UK and its interests that the range and depth of the development opportunities that we offer are exceptional - making us a market leader. Moreover, we believe that the quality of our training programme, our accelerated path to chartership, personal mentoring and huge investment in each graduate sets us apart from competitors in the engineering and science field.
The DESG graduate scheme is a carefully structured but flexible training program; enabling each graduate to get the most from a series of work placements (that includes placements with private industry). Through this unique scheme each graduate is able to further their professional development - making it possible for them to gain tremendous engineering or science experience and to achieve chartered status within just four years.
