Description and Requirements

Research, Design and Development (RDD) is Dyson's engine room. It’s where our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, and then fail again - all to invent technology that solves problems that others ignore. 


Join us as an intern and from day one you’ll be assigned to a live project with the chance to have a meaningful impact on the evolution of Dyson technology. 


Closing date for 1st round of recruitment – 20 November 2018

Accountabilities:

Whether you are with us for 12 weeks or 12 months, you’ll be expected to hit the ground running on one of Dyson’s many live projects. Working as part of a larger project team, you’ll have your own set of project deliverables and the chance to take ownership of how these are achieved. 


Some of your tasks could include:
  • Developing mechanical parts, assemblies and systems from concept to production.
  • Developing and validating mechanical designs that meet specification requirements.
  • Conceptualising, developing and detailing ideas for future mechanical parts
  • Designing experiments and necessary rigs/fixtures for component and system characterisation and validation.

Working with engineers and scientists/technical experts across a broad range of disciplines, you’ll be comfortable learning from others, but also sharing your own knowledge, ideas and opinions. 


As well as being supported by your line manager, and with support from our dedicated Early Careers Development Team, you’ll also be assigned a buddy to help you along the way.

Skills:

Our internships are competitive and delivering the next generation of Dyson technology is tough, so you’ll need to be:


  • On track for a 2:1 or above in a Mechanical Engineering discipline. 
  • Able to evidence how you have applied your technical knowledge to solve problems, either through your university projects or as part of your extra-curricular activities.
  • Happy to build your own networks to learn from the technical expertise around you.
  • Creative in your approach to problem solving to ensure our machines are better.
  • Passionate about Dyson and our technology to help us meet our ambitious future plans.

Above all, you’ll want to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.
