Research, Design and Development (RDD) is the engine that drives Dyson. Based in one of our global Engineering hubs, you’ll be part of a 4,000-strong team of engineers and scientists. It’s a place for inventors and creative minds with exceptional technical ability.

Software, electronics, mechanical engineering, design or research - whatever your discipline, from day one you’ll be using your skills to help us develop revolutionary new technologies. That means working on top secret projects. Alongside experts in your field. Using cutting edge machinery.

Our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine and fail again. It’s an iterative process. To be different takes resilience and patience. But you’ll see first-hand how your discipline feeds into each product lifecycle.

Whichever area you join, we’ll support you with a four week induction, helping you understand safety and processes. Beyond this you’ll be supported by an ongoing development programme, making sure you have a breadth of exposure to our Engineering departments and Dyson as a whole.

The rest is up to you. You’ll be part of an international team with locations all over the world, so could end up travelling the globe. With the right ideas, you could even help shape the next generation of Dyson technology.

Software developers and engineers

 Our technology expertise has moved from being purely mechanical to requiring mechanical, electronic and digital integration.  Our manufacturing requires robots to make robots.  To succeed in this new era, we need the best brains and the most advanced algorithms and applications.  Connected appliances, part of the internet things, are part of our future.



You'll be academically strong in one of the following (or related) disciplines:Computer Science, Software Engineering or Robotics.  But armed not just with theory, you'll be able to demonstrate your understanding of what connectivity can achieve, either from your course work or projects you do just for fun.


Graduate electronics and robotics engineers

After 420 patents and £28m of investment, Dyson launched its first robot vacuum in 2015.  But behind the scenes, our engineers have been researching and developing robot technology for over 16 years.  They've taken electronics and power systems into unchartered territories.

This is our future. Join us, and you'll have the chance to play your part in it.  Applying creative thinking and pioneering techniques to shape the smart technology of tomorrow.



You'll be academically strong in one of the following (or related) disciplines: Electrical, Electronic or Robotics Engineering.  But theoretical knowledge is only part of it, you'll need to demonstrate your understanding with practical examples from either course work or projects you've been involved with just for fun.

Graduate mechanical and design engineers

We're looking for the next generation of creative problem-solvers to join our Research, Design & Development (RDD) team. You'll be working in the labs where groundbreaking Dyson technologies were born. Like the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer and the Dyson 360 Eye™ robot vacuum cleaner.



To join us you'll be academically strong with a relevant engineering degree. But more importantly, you'll bring the ability to combine creative thinking with technical expertise. You'll need to show us where you'll achieved this, either through projects or practical experience.

Graduates scientists

Identifying a problem is the easy part.  The clever bit is building the core technologies to solve it. Finding the right materials. Combining, testing,failing, rearranging.  This happens in our science and research department.  Here, you'll use your ingenuity, tenacity, and engineering and scientific skills to invent brand new technology.



A vacancy in Research is a rare thing - so we look for specific scientific backgrounds each year.  Find out which disciplines we currently need in Graduate vacancies.

Engineering internships

Our engineering internships last three, six or twelve months. Each one gives you the opportunity to take on real projects and gain experience in our top secret Research, Design & Development (RDD) department.

You’ll be supported by a full induction. And a development programme that ensures you learn a breadth of engineering skills. Most importantly, if you make the most of the opportunity, we’ll look to make a graduate offer of employment for when you complete your degree.



Competition for places is fierce. So to stand out you’ll need a consistently strong academic record in a technical degree, such as: computer science, software, electronic, electrical or power systems engineering, robotics, product design, design engineering, industrial design, design and innovation, mechanical engineering, or physics, biology or chemistry. You’ll also need to be eligible to work in the country of application
