At Bombardier, we see trains as more than a mode of transport. Ours is a challenging, innovative, important industry, and we see trains as the future of eco-friendly travel; as outstanding examples of design; and as exceptional feats of engineering. They’re also highly complex projects that need brilliant people to bring them to life and keep them running smoothly.

Our Engineers across the world work to meet and set market trends. We ensure that we have the best products to exceed our customers and passengers expectations in terms of not only technical performance but also competitiveness.

By creating products and services that make the most intelligent use of energy and materials, we partner with our suppliers and meet our customers’ demands for more energy-efficient, less emission–producing products with optimal safety, reliability, passenger comfort as well as cost efficiency. We are the only company in the UK that has the capability to design a train from a blank piece of paper, build the train and maintain it throughout its life cycle.

Joining Vehicle Engineering, Systems Engineering, Industrial Design, Human Factors, Project Integrity, Project Engineering, Safety and Reliability or Engineering Management, you will initially complete a two year intensive development programme. Alongside your contribution to the success of the team, the rotations in the business will encompass the entire product selection, development and service operation life cycle.

With an experienced Mentor to guide you and undertaking a variety of training modules, you will work towards gaining a professional qualification while also building both technical and interpersonal skills.

The Engineering scheme is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and we support your progression to Chartered Engineer.

Joining the team in Derby will mean working on real assignments and gaining hands-on experience with responsibility from day one. You will have a chance to build a personal network within the wider business in order to develop overall business awareness, share best practice and foster cross functional working.


You will need a minimum 2:1 Bachelors Degree or Masters Degree, in one of the following domains: Automotive, Aerospace, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering from courses with product integration and system engineering content. A Bachelor or Master degree in Maths, Physics, Chemistry/Materials or a manufacturing discipline will be considered as well. Candidates must have excellent problem solving skills and a passion for making things happen.

Bombardier Transportation is a global engineering company that’s shaping the evolution of mobility.
