Civil Engineering Scottish Graduate Apprenticeship

About our apprenticeships, is this the right route for you?
Interested in one of our apprenticeships but not entirely sure what it entails? Well, as an apprentice you’ll be right in the thick of all the action. It’s a great route into the industry. You’ll get the chance to expand your knowledge by attending college one day a week, while constantly discovering new and exciting things and learning from our industry experts on the job. If you’re an individual that can work independently when appropriate and can demonstrate a positive approach to problem solving, then an apprenticeship is the perfect step for you.

However, it doesn’t stop there. The great thing about an apprenticeship is that you’ll be earning a salary straight away while learning, then eventually gaining a professional qualification. You’ll be given continued support as you develop your skills throughout the program and there is no cost for the training you receive.

So, what is civil engineering all about?

Can you imagine contributing to the design, construction and maintenance of everything around us? Well as a civil engineering technician, you’ll be getting involved in the design, analysis, delivery and overall engineering of many important projects, providing long lasting solutions for everyone involved. Using programmes such as computer aided design and building information management, you’ll learn engineering principles and technics to help design and deliver infrastructure and buildings. If you have a broad skills base then this is certainly the scheme for you!

You will join our Aberdeen BIM/CAD team, and work on a diverse engineering portfolio, with projects ranging in complexity from a simple concrete slab take a few hours to draw in 2D, to a federate 3D BIM model of an underground station taking several months to complete. Your mentor and Line Manager will aim to provide you with the knowledge and skills that will enable you to use the AutoCAD command structure effectively and efficiently in the production of 2D working drawings. We will guide and assist you through practical exercises and drawing tutorials in order that you will gain experience in using AutoCAD, producing 2D fully working drawings to a given specification. Having gained confidence in 2D creation and presentation you will be introduced to BIM 3D model creation and editing.

What will you get?

At the end of all your hard work, you’ll have a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering to show for it all. You’ll also receive industry certificates in Site Safety Plus, Site Managers’ Safety Training Scheme and Site Environmental Awareness Training Scheme.

This apprenticeship will include the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to achieve Incorporated Engineer status with the Institution of Civil Engineers and lead to the designatory letters IEng MICE. The professional review process for IEng MICE is included in the final assessment process.
