What will the apprentice be doing?

Internal combustion engines have dominated automotive propulsion since cars were introduced, but we are reimagining the future.While continuing torefine the quality of our combustion engines, we are expanding into electrification, catering to the demands of today and the future. As an Applied Professional Engineering Degree Apprentice, you will become a multi-disciplinary engineer, developing digital technology solutions for modern luxury vehicles that are renowned for their desirability and performance.

Electrical or Electronic Technical Support pathway

Electronics is the driving force behind most of the innovations in modern vehicles. You can find electronic parts in most, if not all, active components of our products - from sensors and actuators inside traditional mechanical components like dampers all the way up to sophisticated, purely electric propulsion systems. As an Electrical and Electronics Engineer you will learn a variety of different skills including electronic circuit design, power electronics, embedded safety critical system design, programming and more.

Applied Professional Engineering Programme apprentices following the Electrical and Electronics pathway could be based within any of the following teams: Digital Products Platform (DPP), Engineering Powertrain (EP), Engineering Operations (EO) or Engineering Quality (EQ). You will be asked to indicate your preference during the application process. Please see website for more details.

Depending on the area tasks can include:
• Identifying issues with data, you will assist our System Engineers in finding corrective solutions and quickly develop skills in using equipment such as oscilloscopes and multimeters
• work across electrified propulsion systems, including battery technology, electric drive units
• could focus on the next generation of propulsion thermal systems to maximise vehicle range
• learn all about the electrical architecture of vehicles and rigs whilst developing key skills in software, test support and project delivery.
• as a Test Engineer you could become an expert on batteries, from cells to modules and stacks
• you could train as an Electrical Specialist Engineer and support our move from mechanical-based test rigs to mechatronic systems

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

As part of your Apprenticeship, you will study for a BEng in Applied Professional Engineering with the University of Warwick (WMG).

Over the first three years of your Apprenticeship, you will study a range of modules designed to help you develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to thrive as an engineering professional. A network of apprentice tutors and line managers will regularly review your progress and offer advice to support you in performing at your best.

These modules are taught in blocks throughout the academic year by WMG, a key part of the University of Warwick. You will benefit from a mix of lectures, practical laboratory assignments, seminars and tutorials delivered in person and online, and you will also enjoy access to a virtual learning environment for further support.

In your final year, you will undertake a work-based project that also forms part of your End Point Assessment (EPA). On successful completion of your EPA, you will achieve your Level 6 Apprenticeship - and will be ready for an amazing career with Jaguar Land Rover.
