Who we are and what we do
Capgemini Engineering combines, under one brand, a unique set of strengths from across the Capgemini Group: the world leading engineering and R&D services of Altran – acquired by Capgemini in 2020 – and Capgemini’s digital manufacturing expertise.
In the UK, we provide engineering services and bespoke project-based solutions from conception to delivery to major national and global players. Our high-calibre technical units, expertise centres and world class centres are involved in some of the UK’s most exciting projects demanding the very highest level of engineering excellence, including building a pioneering new automotive architecture, revolutionising the approach to rail delays and designing the latest traffic management system for UK airspace.
We are seeking graduates who are forward thinking, innovative and inquisitive to join our exceptional team.
What you could be doing during your work placement
Jerome joined us from Bath University: “In the four months I have been at Altran (now Capgemini), I have worked as a developer on a small-scale project. It has given me the opportunity to practise my programming skills and work alongside other developers. I have already had the opportunity to visit a client site and present the work I have done. I was welcomed quickly by the team and participated within the weekly team meetings. I am currently starting training in preparation for joining a large project as a tester, giving me experience in an area of the software cycle I have not encountered before and the chance to work with new people. I recommend Altran (now Capgemini) to those who want to experience all of the software engineering life cycle. You will be treated as an equal team member and given real responsibilities. People are very friendly and helpful and will ensure that you receive the appropriate amount of work and offer the guidance that you need.”

MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering
What appeals to you about Electronics?
I got into EEE because I enjoy solving challenging problems that are meaningful and have demonstrable impact. There are many potential career paths from a EEE degree and it gives you a wide skillset ranging from software to HV electrical systems to LV electronics, with a strong foundation in Maths and engineering principles.
Why did you want a scholarship with Capgemini Engineering?
Capgemini Engineering does critical work, particularly at the Bath office where we engineer High-Integrity software (software where it is vital – usually for safety reasons – that it does not fail). They appealed to me because, being a consultancy, they work in a wide array of important fields (e.g., Transport, Defence, Energy) and for a long list of notable clients. They are also software focussed, which enables me to get experience and insight into SWE, – adding to my overall skillset.
What type of work have you been involved with during your placement?
Since starting, I have been working on a project involving RESTful APIs and Language Servers, mainly using Java and Typescript – both languages that I was not too familiar with. This has been extremely useful as the project has been paced very well and I have become very confident with both languages, particularly Java, in a very short space of time without feeling out of my depth. My understanding of SWE is already much greater after just three months of working.
What are your interests outside of work?
In Bath there is always lots to do, and the office is ideally located in the centre of the city. I have taken up playing Badminton at a local club every week, and joined a Gym situated next to the office. There are also lots of places nearby to go walking, great pubs and restaurants in Bath, and good nightlife to be found nearby in Bristol. Since my placement started, I have been re-learning both French and Guitar in my spare time.
