Level 6: APEP (Applied Professional Engineer Programme) - Control Systems

Programme Duration – 4 Years
Qualification – BEng (Hons) Applied Professional Engineering Programme
Salary – Circa £20,000

Over the duration of your apprenticeship you will get to work on ground-breaking projects, alongside expert minds and become one yourself thanks to your studies at the prestigious University of Warwick.

Real-world experience. Academic recognition. Getting the best of both worlds means you’ll jump ahead of your peers. Plus, the theory you learn here throughout your time spent at the University of Warwick, which will be typically one week out of six, means you’ll make an ever-greater contribution and have some in-demand skills.

Control Systems

As a Control Systems Engineer, you will be a key cog in the Jaguar Land Rover Manufacturing process. Your skill set will ensure that any breakdowns that occur are kept to a minimum and that when issues do arise, you can effectively problem solve to a speedy & effective resolution.

Throughout your academic studies, you will learn all about Programmable Logic Controller Software and what is required to operate robots successfully. You will be responsible for developing, updating and implementing control specifications and standards for manufacturing equipment and systems, and this will be taught to you via your degree programme.

The Apprenticeship

The Applied Professional Engineering Apprenticeship (Level 6) is a four-year programme, where you earn whilst you learn.

During Year one and two, apprentices will spend their time in off the job training provided by the University of Warwick and also within the workplace.

In Year three and four you will study specialised subjects in line with your chosen pathway. Your final year of your apprenticeship will see you complete your end-point assessment and achieve your Level 6 Apprenticeship, ready for an amazing career in a permanent role within Engineering.

Specialism Modules (Year 1 & 2)
Personal Skills for Professional Excellence, Engineering Mathematics, Mechanics and Energy Methods, Electrical and Electronic Systems 1, Applied Engineering Design + Technical Operations Management, Quality methods, Workshop Skills + DFM + MMP, Industrial Digitalisation, Engineering Systems, Dynamic Mechanics & Thermofluids, instrumentation & Control, Numerical Methods for Modelling, Project Management & Leadership and CAD/CAM.

Specialism Modules (Year 3 & 4)
Advanced Quality Technologies, Productionising Designs, Mechatronics & Systems Control, Networking Infrastructure Communications and Interoperability of Systems, Sustainable Energy Systems, Industrial processes, materials for Advanced Applications, Stress Analysis, Functional Systems and Individual Business Based Project.

Following the successful completion of your Apprenticeship you could find yourself working in Powertrain or Manufacturing Engineering.

About Jaguar Land Rover

The way the world moves is changing faster than at any other time in automotive history

The world has changed beyond all recognition since the first car was made in 1885. And it’s a very different place than it was a year ago. The impact of the global pandemic has altered the way everyone thinks, the way everyone works and the way we all live. Every life has been affected every industry has been impacted. And the automotive industry has been put under enormous pressure.

But where there is change, there is also the challenge of meeting that change with bold action and positive behaviour. We want to lead the way in the development of tomorrow’s cars with a clear vision for the future. Cars that are cleaner, smarter and more connected to the world.

We believe in zero congestion, zero accidents and zero emissions. And we will achieve this by changing our focus from being simply a car manufacturer to a technology business that makes great cars. We will do this by putting real purpose at the heart of everything we do.
