Internships and Industrial Placements

Internships at ORE Catapult

An internship at ORE Catapult is an invaluable chance for engineering students to gain experience working on real-world renewables projects.

We offer interns opportunities that are second-to-none. From day-to-day you could be designing a new tidal energy system, helping develop the world’s first textile turbine blade, or working with an innovative small company to progress its groundbreaking technology.

As well as playing an important part in creating and delivering cutting-edge technologies, our interns get a taste of office life and live the life of a professional, full-time engineer: building practical experience that sets them apart in today’s competitive job market.

We have two types of internship:

  • six-month industrial placements (January – June, as part of a degree programme)
  • 12-week summer internships (June – September).

If you’re a third or fourth year undergraduate, studying a relevant engineering degree at a UK university, and have a passion for renewable energy, read on to find out more about applying.


“It’s far more interesting and engaging when you can see your work having a tangible impact on a real-life project.”

Hannah Mitchell, Engineering Intern


How to Apply

We look for quality third and fourth year candidates from mechanical, environmental, and renewables engineering courses. We also consider candidates studying computer science, project management, and electrical engineering.

Applications for 12-week summer internships starting June 2020 will open in December 2019.

You can apply via our Careers Page.
