Overview

The aeroplane builder. Top flight engineering with an emphasis on everything being done perfectly (for which we have often been thankful) and with a focus on hands-on skills. Graduate recruits therefore sent to local FE college for a year before they are allowed near the factory floor. A good employer by all accounts. Degree apprenticeships in engineering only leads to a BEng (so you'll need to find out how you get your Masters).
