About The Dyson Institute

The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology is unlike any other higher education institution. It’s for those with a passion for solving problems and a fascination for how things work; people who’d rather get hands-on with real engineering challenges.

As an Undergraduate Engineer, you work alongside the Dyson Global Engineering team from day one. You are responsible for live projects, all while studying for your engineering degree and earning a competitive salary. And with no fees to pay, you could graduate debt-free.

Our four year engineering programme uses the degree apprenticeship model of delivery, which combines:

  • an academic course of study: BEng(Hons) Engineering,
  • a work-based element of learning: you will work to the Product Design and Development Engineer apprenticeship standard.

The first two years provide a strong foundation in engineering theory and practice, before you specialise in years three and four. For your final two years, we'll give you the opportunity to state your preferred pathway and you will be placed in a team depending on your preferences, skills and the business need. The engineering fundamentals that you learn in your studies will be put to practice through your role within our Global Engineering team.

As a first year Undergraduate Engineer, you will live on-site in a modern accommodation pod designed by renowned architect Chris Wilkinson. Set in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, the campus is within easy driving distance of the thriving cities of Bristol, Bath and Gloucester. And there’s always something going on at Dyson – whether it’s a charity bike ride, a pumpkin carving challenge, or a 24 hour hackathon competition.

You will be part of a small and close-knit cohort, while simultaneously being part of a 4,000-strong team of smart and ambitious Dyson people on campus.

However you decide to spend your time here, you’ll be part of a community of people who inspire each other. You’ll also have our on-site student support services to help you thrive during your studies and life at Dyson.
