Digital and Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship - Software Pathway

Creating the cars of tomorrow is a challenge around 40,000 passionate Jaguar Land Rover colleagues take on every day. The way cars are created and driven is changing. And we are leading that change. Our vision is for a cleaner, smarter, more connected world where autonomous, connected, electrified and shared vehicles will replace the environmentally impactful world of the internal combustion engine. Throughout our history we have always taken on the challenges of creating the most prestigious, sustainable and desirable cars.

What to expect

Jaguar Land Rover subject matter experts have worked with our partners in WMG at the University of Warwick to develop the BSc degree in Digital and Technology Solutions.

You’ll spend your first three months at university, where you’ll gain programming skills, further develop your knowledge in math and start to build your professional business skills. After this time, you’ll typically attend university for one week in every six to achieve your Bachelor’s degree and study at the new Degree Apprenticeship Centre in the heart of the University of Warwick campus.

You’ll contribute to the business in your assigned role, as well as undertake additional study in your own time, to achieve your academic award. A network of apprentice tutors and line managers will regularly review your progress and offer advice along the way, to support you performing at your best.

Level 6 Apprentices will be selected for one of the following routes:

  • Software Engineering, in our Engineering and IT teams
  • Software Engineering with Data Analysis, in our Engineering and Manufacturing teams
  • Data Analytics with a variety of functions across our enterprise
  • Network Engineering in our Engineering and IT teams

Where it will take you

Join us on this apprenticeship programme and you’ll be placed within one of the areas below:

Product engineering

As the sophistication and automation of our vehicles continues to grow, our design and development teams in Electrical, Electronic and Software Engineering; and Powertrain Engineering increasingly require software engineering expertise to help create and maintain the millions of lines of code for our vehicles. Increased connectivity produces large amounts of data which can be used to continuously improve our products, and provide new services to our customers to give them experiences they love for life.

IT

As a growing global business continuously investing in our facilities, our IT teams ensure that our people have the infrastructure and tools required to do their jobs. Our Network Engineers support existing infrastructure and the deployment of new technical solutions. Our Analysts use data from multiple sources to support day-to-day operations, drive improvements and help forecast our future requirements so that the optimal solutions can be deployed.

Embedded business technology across our enterprise

In a world of ever greater connectivity, digital technology solutions play a role in virtually everything we do and experience. Our global teams across our business are increasingly using data from multiple sources to make critical decisions and drive outstanding performance.

Data analytics, the management and manipulation of relevant data is essential for us to continue to offer a world-class experience to our customers whilst remaining commercially viable. To take on this challenge you should enjoy problem solving, have good analytical proficiency and be comfortable manipulating and working with large amounts of data.

We’ll continue to invest in our systems and deploy new architectures to get the most out of the data around us. Fast reporting, data visualisation and trend identification will enable the business to outperform the competition in all areas. Artificial Intelligence will play an increasingly important role in us maintaining relationships with our suppliers, customers and employees which are trusted and personalised.

Join us as a Digital and Technology Solutions Apprentice and you’ll start influencing our success in activities across our entire business helping us to deliver our extensive plans for further growth. You’ll learn about cyber security, artificial intelligence, big data,

Internet of Things, and the project management and life cycles required for them to be deployed in our business.
