Electrical and Electronics Degree Apprenticeship

Rolls-Royce develops safety critical, complex power and propulsion solutions for use in the air, at sea, and on land. We’ve designed the world’s most efficient large aero-engine, powered nuclear submarines, enabled land-speed records, and even supported NASA missions on the edge of space.

As an Electrical and Electronics Degree Apprentice, you’ll be working on electric and hybrid-electric drive systems, gas turbine engines like UltraFan, and electronic engine controls. All of these are helping us achieve our ultimate ambition of reaching net zero carbon emissions for our business and our customers.

We have a long history of achieving extraordinary goals at Rolls-Royce. And the ways we’re changing to become an even more innovative, competitive, and sustainable business are no less bold. Join us and you can help transform the way we power, protect, and connect people, now and in the future.

The programme

Over four years, you’ll develop invaluable technical skills. Working with world-class experts, you’ll learn on the job, working on everything from digital and analogue design, all the way through to testing and manufacturing. Alongside this, you’ll study for your Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Warwick.

What you’ll do

Day to day, you’ll be part of exciting work based in our state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility. From research, design and test, to build, modify and develop, every stage of development is done under one roof. It’s an unrivalled environment where you can apply the theory you’ve learned as part of your degree. And be inspired to do work you can be proud of.

What you'll need

  • Five GCSEs which must include Maths at grade 5/B, plus English Language and three other subjects at grade 4/C.
  • 112 UCAS points (obtained or predicted) from either:
    • Three A-levels, including Maths at Grade B or above, and ideally an Engineering or STEM related-subject (excluding Biology and General Studies) plus one other subject.
    • An Extended BTEC in an Engineering or STEM-related subject, along with A-level Maths at grade B.

If you have equivalent qualifications, please contact us.

Every bit as important as your academic achievements, however, are the personal qualities you bring to the role. You’ll need to be an agile thinker, creative problem-solver, someone who’s willing to learn and ready to work as part of a team.

Beyond that, we’re looking for people who understand the nature of integrated power and thermal management. And can show a real interest in electrical and electronics and the future of sustainable power.

What you’ll get

  • A competitive starting salary with annual pay rises
  • Fully sponsored Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Warwick   
  • 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)
  • Competitive pension
  • A choice of voluntary benefits including discounts at nationwide stores, gyms, discounted health care, free digital GP, Cycle to Work scheme and more all available on our TotalReward portal
  • Continuous learning and development
  • Support from managers, leaders, mentors and other apprentices
  • Opportunities to develop beyond your day-to-day role and get involved in social activities
  • An independent, 24-hour, confidential counselling service
