Chemical Engineering Sandwich Student Placement (1 Year) – AstraZeneca
One of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, AstraZeneca creates innovative and effective treatments for some of the most important areas of medical need. AstraZeneca Operations now have one, one year Chemical Process Engineering placement within our Technical Improvement Group, responsible for, existing product manufacturing support, capital project support and Safety, Health and the Environment improvements at our leading UK manufacturing site in Bristol, which is responsible for the manufacture of two of AstraZeneca’s leading and most profitable compounds. This role is for people interested in a career in chemical engineering after graduation.
Process Engineers are core to maintaining the supply of commercial compounds to the market, to ensure the site retains its licence to operate and are key to ensuring the manufacturing process is efficient as possible. This is achieved through the application of practical, experimental and theoretical chemical engineering knowledge and exploitation of the most appropriate innovative technologies and designs.
During a 12-month student placement we will introduce you to live manufacturing plant and the process engineering knowledge required to support its continuing operation and process improvement activities. You may also be involved in the accommodation of new manufacturing processes on site. You are likely to be involved in plant and design based activities utilising new and existing technologies, you may also be required to support process changes or technology evaluation within the laboratory. There will also be opportunities to learn about the wider business and gain an appreciation of the role that process engineering plays in the end to end development of new medicines
