You’ll develop an excellent theoretical and practical understanding of operational and technical systems, as well as equipment and their use in the fast-moving broadcasting industry.

Your work placements

You will rotate through engineering teams responsible for installing, fixing and maintaining the studios and equipment, and will also do placements with other departments working on engineering projects.
