Mechanical Industrial & Summer Placements

Our mechanical placements are involved in the mechanical design of Renishaw's future products and the maintenance of current products.

Mechanical Industrial Placement

A Mechanical Industrial Placement at Renishaw will involve working on real engineering projects that can involve elements of; component design and modelling, process design, dynamic analysis, design for manufacture, mechanisms and control, and experimental design verification. Using the latest software applications, in-house development processes, technologies and practical skills can give a real insight into engineering business and how Renishaw develops and manufactures innovative new products.

Applications are encouraged from bright, highly motivated individuals who are excited by engineering. Renishaw engineers tend to be innovative, organised and passionate about their work both as an individual and as a team member and we are looking for people with similar skills and passion. Could this be you? Be part of an exciting company with a broad portfolio of innovative products and see where engineering can take you.

You must:

• Be studying at degree level in a STEM subject
• Have a proven interest in technology
• Be enthusiastic, motivated and have an ambitious nature

If you have the right aptitude and appetite you will have the opportunity to make a positive and lasting impact during the placement.

Mechanical Summer Placement

Renishaw offers a number of paid placement opportunities lasting between 6 and 12 weeks during the summer holiday period. We are particularly interested to hear from A Level students or undergraduates who are keen to experience the broad range of mechanical engineering challenges faced at a leading engineering company. The placements will involve working on real engineering projects that can involve elements of, for instance, component design and modelling, process design, dynamic analysis, design for manufacture, mechanisms and control.

You must:


• Be studying at sixth form or degree level and already have, or be on track to achieve, good A level grades in physics and mathematics
• Have a proven interest in technology
• Be enthusiastic, motivated and have an ambitious nature

Applications open December 2019.
