I didn’t expect to travel the world, work with prototypes, meet great people and continually learn.

KENNETH, CONNECTED CAR INTEGRATION ENGINEER

DIGITAL AND TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS DEGREE APPRENTICESHIP

Change the world. Do what you love. Get paid to do it. That’s what’s on offer here. This is your chance to shape how the world moves. Your ideas will transform our vehicles using the most advanced technologies. You’ll get to work on groundbreaking projects, alongside expert minds – and become one yourself thanks to your studies at the prestigious University of Warwick. Real-world experience. Academic recognition. Getting the best of both worlds means you’ll jump ahead of your peers. Your university course will teach the programming skills you need to start working with us. Plus, the theory you learn here – one week out of six – means you’ll make an ever-greater contribution and have some in-demand skills.

Explore the pathways

Software Engineering

Software gives us our edge. It makes our thinking come alive in the real world. This option will show you how to design, build and test the groundbreaking software that delivers the wow. You’ll also learn how to integrate engineering principles which deliver superior analysis, development and built-in security.

Network Engineering

Become an expert in technology solutions, data traffic and transmission across networks. Make yourself indispensable to our performance. This option is about delivering the infrastructure we rely on to communicate inside the business and beyond. We’ll lay the groundwork for you to foresee what the future holds in this area and equip you to innovate so we’re always ahead of the curve.

Software Engineering with Data

Increasingly automated. Evermore sophisticated. This is the future our vision holds for our vehicles. Delivering here will be in the hands of our design and development teams in Electrical, Electronic, and Software Engineering, and Powertrain Engineering. This means continually enhancing your expertise to create the millions of lines of code new innovations demand, translating data into demand and meeting that demand by reinventing and rejuvenating our products and services.

Data Analytics

Innovation starts life in the numbers. Data dictates where we go next. You’ll tell us what it’s saying. But first, we need to make you fluent in this unique language. By the end of the programme, you’ll understand data structures, software development procedures and the analytical tools we use. So when we ask for your recommendation, your response will be impressive.

The value of our people lies in their continued development and in our commitment to invest in their learning and growth in order that they can optimise their performance, whatever their role.

That’s why we are building The Jaguar Land Rover Learning Academy; a home for lifelong learning. We are creating engaging, relevant and personalised learning content and experiences that can impact personal, team and organisational performance. Here, we are seeking to enable people to learn, create, grow and to support others to do the same; daring each other to embrace the changes and the challenges we face and ensure our future is bright.

Ezra
Design Engineer

“With self-driving vehicles becoming a reality, we’ll be looking at how people will make the most of their time in the car. My job is to continue to design cars that create experiences that customers love.””

As strange as this sounds, I didn’t know much about the world of engineering until a group of Jaguar Land Rover apprentices came into my school to talk about what they do. I was amazed that engineering was really suited to my skillset. And I realised that creative thinking and problem solving are exactly what is needed to do well as an apprentice here. I’ve been here three years now, working as a Design Engineer, and it has been harder than I thought, but the support is incredible. And the network of other apprentices is huge. There’s always someone who will listen to you and so many people you can learn from.

Connected Car Integration Engineer

“I chose Jaguar Land Rover because it’s a Great British Brand and I came here because I wanted to write code.”

It’s so exciting! 5G technology, streams of data and advanced cloud and server based platforms are allowing me to help our cars adapt in the moment to drive efficiency for the customer. Whether that’s predicting when a car needs to warm the seats or start up, or when an engine needs to change performance to match the conditions it’s driving in. Not to mention how we update battery range or infotainment systems in the blink of an eye.

Raisa
Maintenance Apprentice

“I chose Jaguar Land Rover because the structured and detailed Apprenticeship programme really appealed to me and my working style.”

I’m a Maintenance Engineer in my second year of the Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeship Pathway. I was looking at a variety of apprenticeships, but I chose Jaguar Land Rover because they are one of Britain’s largest car manufacturers and the structured and detailed apprenticeship programme really appealed to me and my working style. One of the greatest aspects of being on any of the apprenticeship programmes, is the support you get to succeed. I started with a year at the training provider at Aston, but my development has only increased since being on-site in Solihull.
