What’s it like
B Eng C Eng FIET FSOE FIPlantE
Chief Engineer and Head of Works Engineering
“It is vitally important that the nuclear industry attracts the right people to help take the industry forward. Westinghouse Springfields intends to be fully involved with nuclear growth globally and particularly in the European arena. Attracting the right calibre of person is key to us achieving our objective, graduates are in this key group and engineering graduates in particular are encouraged to work towards Chartered Engineer status and are given every opportunity to do so.”
BSC (Hons) B.I.T Grade 1st Class Honours
“My graduate programme was a phenomenal experience, and it didn’t stop at the end of the two years! As a business graduate I was given the opportunity to work with customers from various countries including the US and Japan. This enabled me to develop a strong commercial base, more importantly a cultural awareness that you just can’t get from a text book! I also attained an MBA with Distinction – a professional dream I couldn’t have achieved without Westinghouse’s continuing support and encouragement to their graduates”.
B Eng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Grade: 1st Class Honours
“I graduated with a degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering. As part of the course, I undertook a successful undergraduate placement at Westinghouse; this influenced my decision to join the company after graduation. The training programme is designed to ensure that graduates experience a wide range of knowledge to assist in gaining chartered status, demonstrating the company’s commitment to engineers. I am now a Chartered Electrical Engineer with the IET.”
"I first came to Springfields as a year in industry student in the third year of my Chemical Engineering degree. I enjoyed it so much I applied to return as a graduate. The two years I spent on the graduate development scheme allowed me to experience work in a variety of roles, including engineering, operations and commercial areas. The way the scheme is designed gives you a great opportunity to find out what you’re interested in and develop as a professional engineer. I was also able to undertake training in some new skills, including management, problem solving and safety, which I think will be very useful through my career."
“Through the Westinghouse Graduate Scheme I received 1:1 coaching from business leaders via 4 placements in the areas of Product Design, Safety Case, Operations and Contract Management. The placements revealed the daily challenges leaders face and the systems used to manage and develop their departments. From these experiences I significantly developed my professional outlook and as a result, when combined with my degree education, I am close to gaining chartered status with the IMechE. This would not have been possible without the support and evidence gained through the Westinghouse Graduate Scheme.”
