The Defence Engineering and Science Group (DESG) have what is probably the very best graduate development scheme for Graduate Engineers and Scientists available in the UK: investing over 20k into your individual training and development per year (- this is over and above your salary!)
The Defence Engineering & Science Group is the community of 9,000 professional engineers and scientists working within Ministry of Defence to equip and support the UK Armed Forces with state of the art technology.
The UK needs modern, battle-winning forces to defend it’s interests and to contribute to strengthening international peace and security. These forces increasingly depend on scientific and technological advances to maintain their ability to operate effectively.
Our forces must, therefore, have equipment and capabilities that give a decisive technological edge over any potential opponent and remain compatible with those of our Allies.
Countering new types of threats as they emerge will be a key challenge to UK forces in the future. We therefore place a premium on the ability to identify and generate innovative technologies, adopt them for military use and integrate them rapidly into platforms, weapon systems and force structures.
