Control and Instrumentation Apprenticeship: Maintenance
- Company: AWE
- Location: Aldermaston
- Closing Date: 31-03-2023
Control and Instrumentation (C&I) is one of only two ‘critical trades’ at AWE. That’s because C&I is vital to the successful delivery of our programme of work. Put simply, C&I engineers enable a wide range of different automated processes to run.
C&I engineers create, simplify and automate processes. We deal with systems that measure and control all kinds of things – from the flow of water, to the temperature of a furnace. Our goal is to make sure complex processes can take place at the simple press of a button. In C&I, we maintain, install and develop equipment used to control a variety of processes within AWE’s production environment. That means everything from air handling units which keep clean air flowing safely through different working environments, through to programmable logic controllers which use advanced IT to control a variety of systems.
