Graduate Manufacturing Engineer

Our Graduate Manufacturing Engineers benefit from a 2-year structured development programme with placements in various departments within the Manufacturing Services Division.

Graduate Manufacturing Engineers

Relevant disciplines: Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Production Engineering and Robotics / Automation.

Renishaw offers exciting opportunities for graduates within our Manufacturing Services Division. The graduate development programme for Manufacturing Engineers aims to develop ambitious, talented and self-motivated graduates into the skilled technical experts and managers required to grow and advance the manufacturing side of our business.

You will follow a personalised and structured two-year programme based on a series of three to six month placements covering a broad range of disciplines. Placements and projects will be 'tuned' to your ambitions and always involve work on real projects delivering tangible business benefits.

The scheme is split into both Graduate Electronic Manufacturing Engineers and Graduate Manufacturing Engineers in order to tailor your experience and placements to your interests.

Core knowledge that the Graduate Electronic Manufacturing Engineer scheme will deliver:

  • Expertise in high end CAD/CAM software tools for the creation of PCB build and test processes
  • Broad knowledge of a wide range of PCB manufacturing processes including fully automated SMT and PTH build processes, automated optical inspection, selective soldering, die-attach and wire-bonding and so on
  • Broad knowledge of a wide range of PCB Test processes including in-circuit manufacturing defect analysis, functional test software and hardware development, boundary scan, flexible roving probe systems and so on
  • Hands-on manufacture of prototype and pre-production assemblies
  • Design for Assembly and Test theory and practical application
  • Test package and fixture design and development
  • Use of structured Six Sigma statistical techniques and problem solving tools
  • Project management
  • Development and implementation of new production processes
  • Commercial exposure - Technical Purchasing and Vendor Development/Assurance
