We’ve put support services in place to help you thrive in this unique environment and support you in your personal and professional development.
As a Dyson engineer, you’ll be supported to develop skills and behaviours that you’ll need as your career develops.
In addition to the invaluable professional development you’ll gain through your work at Dyson, the Dyson Institute ensures that you will have opportunities to develop professional competencies including teamwork, personal effectiveness, ethical awareness and strategies to promote sustainability. You’ll reflect and build on these competencies through Summer Series, wellbeing and development days and study skills spread throughout the programme.
As an Undergraduate Engineer working in a global company, you'll be developing the skills required to operate in a diverse international environment. By working in global engineering teams, you’ll learn how to overcome challenges and develop skills in order to communicate across cultural boundaries and time zones. This could include the opportunity to spend time in Dyson's inspiring research and development facilities in South East Asia.
During the summer of year one, you’ll take part in Summer Series – a programme designed to develop your understanding of end-to-end product development that goes beyond your workplace experiences. Summer Series is an assessed module contributing to your degree qualification.
In 2021, our undergraduates set about designing solutions aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals to the mounting environmental and humanitarian crises in today's world. With only a short period of time to take their inventions from concept to reality, here's a few examples of what they were able to achieve.
Throughout your time at the Dyson Institute, you’ll be supported to proactively manage your future Dyson career and to meet your personal and professional objectives.
Support includes one-to-one mentorship, opportunities to discuss different career pathways with senior Dyson people, networking events and career insight sessions from leaders across the Dyson business.
After graduation, there’s a seamless transition to the next step in your Dyson career, with individual progression opportunities designed to develop future leaders who will drive innovation and engineering globally.
Professional registration, also known as chartership, is recognition of your engineering and technical competence, which has been independently assessed and is internationally recognised. There are three categories that you can apply for: Engineering Technician (EngTech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
An accredited degree programme can help when you apply for EngTech, IEng or CEng status, as the content you learn has already been verified as relevant for the sector by the relevant Institute or awarding body.
We are working closely with the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) to accredit this MEng (Hons) Engineering programme. The course has been designed to meet the necessary requirements for accreditation.
Anyone that would like to gain professional registration needs to generate evidence of their professional engineering experience, commitment and competence through submission of relevant documentation. They also need to take part in a professional review (similar to an interview).
Your time at the Dyson Institute will give you four years of work experience – a useful head start in developing evidence of your professional competence and commitment.
Once you’re able to demonstrate that you meet the registration requirements of your chosen professional body, Dyson will support you in pursuing this.
You can find out more about becoming chartered and the process involved on the IET website.
