Internship program


Our Internship Program will give you the opportunity to put into practice, what you have been learning throughout your studies, and gain invaluable experience in a defence and civil solutions company.

Kick start your engineering career

Our paid internship program runs for up to 12 weeks during December-February. During this placement, you will work alongside our world-leading engineers gaining experience on real-life projects and case studies. You will further your knowledge and skills from colleagues who are experts in their field.

As well as the day-to-day support you’ll receive from your supervisors and team, you’ll be provided a mentor from our current graduate cohort. This will help with your transition into the workforce and gives you an insight into what it is like to work at Saab.
