You’ll work towards your professional qualification; whichever path you take, your future starts here. 

You’ll also be supported by our leaders, technical specialists, your own dedicated mentor and our continuous learning and development framework.

Not only will you gain valuable 'on the job' experience and work towards professional qualifications but you'll also earn a meaningful salary from day one. We’re proud to be paying Real Living Wage for our Level 6 Apprenticeships.

You'll be making a sustainable difference in people's lives, shaping cities, reimagining transport and transforming nuclear energy. And with the opportunity to work across Cities & Development, Nuclear & Power, Transportation, Water or Environment, you'll decide where you want your career to go.

Here’s what your role as an apprentice will involve:

  • Developing your skills in a wide range of exciting projects
  • Learning and using relevant design software
  • Being involved in client meetings and assisting in building key client relationships
  • You’ll get to understand and learn digital skills, to help us harness technology in new ways

The training you will be getting

The BEng Civil and Infrastructure Engineering is a full Warwick degree, studied over five years through on-the-campus face-to-face teaching and virtual learning experiences, with our teaching and assessment having blended and integrated work based learning throughout.

This BEng (Hons) Accredited CEng (Partial) degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation on behalf of the Engineering Council as:

  • Fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng)
  • Partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng)

Residential teaching will be structured around a number of modules delivered per week, with one week for laboratories and seminars, etc., and the sixth week for examinations and other assessments. The five teaching weeks will comprise lectures, seminars and laboratories. 

On graduation, you will receive a Warwick BEng (Honours) degree, and with this as the gateway with the five years' of invaluable on-the-job experience you can take the assessments with a professional engineering institution for IEng membership.

While study on this programme learning will also happen at your place of work and this studying contributes to your overall degree qualification. As a degree apprentice you will be a full salaried employee. You’ll be working as part of a team with real responsibility giving you hands-on, vocational training every day. At work, you will be supported in your role by both your line manager and employer mentor.
