UK 2022 Hardware/Electronics Internship & Placement year


Graduates, Interns and Apprentices
United Kingdom - Malmesbury Office

About us

Research, Design and Development (RDD) is Dyson's engine room. We push the boundaries of what others have defined as possible. Our approach starts with an engineering mindset and different thinking. Then we continuously refine our ideas – unwilling to compromise and driven by an obsession for finding a better way.

When you invent something, the right technology often doesn't exist to make it work. So, we make our own. From advanced sensors and power supplies, to building a digital motor from scratch, Dyson electronics engineers have enabled our ideas to become reality.  

Our internships are different. Join us and you’ll be part of a global network of like-minded people, working at the forefront of technology, using your technical know-how to influence the evolution of Dyson machines.  

At our UK Technology Campus, we have opportunities for 3 month (starting in June 2022) or 12 month internships/year in industry (starting in the September 2022), for penultimate year students who are eager to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.

About the role

To make our machines intelligent we need a broad range of electronics skills, from analogue and digital circuit design to power systems, control systems and motors. Whatever your specialism you’ll be creating the hardware that makes our machines smart and reliable.

Depending on your skills and experiences you could be contributing toward end to end Hardware development from circuit design, simulation and verification testing to providing support to suppliers during mass production manufacturing.  Some of your tasks could include:

  • Electronic circuit design across a range of regimes, from mains-powered high voltage products to complex high-speed digital logic systems.

  • Testing and analysis of electronics at circuit and product level for new designs.

  • Testing and assessing the reliability and robustness of our designs.

  • Control systems design from drive electronics to control algorithms.

  • Solving electronics challenges to create better, faster, more cost-effective solutions for Dyson’s unique products

Whatever you’re doing the work will be challenging, varied and you’ll be in the thick of things. You’ll be collaborating with engineers and scientists/technical experts across a broad range of disciplines, including product developers, ensuring our solutions are functional, secure and easy to use.

For the duration of your internship, you will have regular performance conversations as well as opportunities for development to enable you to build your reputation within the team, and this could be just the start. We’ll be looking to offer our high performing interns to return on our graduate programme.

About you

Working at the forefront of technology is tough so standards and expectations are high. You’ll be contributing to live projects from the start, so you’ll need to be curious, hungry to learn and ready to get stuck in. But it’s not just about technical expertise. You’ll need to:

  • Working towards an an electrical/electronic engineering (or related) degree

  • Be an undergraduate in your penultimate year, seeking a 3-month or 12-month placement

  • Demonstrable application of your technical skills through hands-on projects, either university or personal projects

  • Showcase a passion for Dyson and our Technology to help us meet our ambitious future plans

  • Have a creative approach to problem solving to ensure our machines are better

  • Be able to thrive in Dyson’s fast-paced environment

Above all, you’ll want to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.
