Area of Responsibilities



  • On this 6-week Summer Internship you'll work alongside skilled professionals and from day one you will be working on real life meaningful projects - adding add value to clients, while exploring challenges with curiosity and creativity.
  • You'll learn from others and begin creating your professional network ready for when you graduate. There are regular learning sessions with our leadership team, opportunities for site visits to local projects and all kinds of social events that will support your learning and development.
  • Our aim is to welcome as many students back into our other programmes be that another internship or potential graduate position. This placement is the stepping-stone to your future.
  • Materials Consulting at Arup exists to ensure materials are used appropriately, working with our colleagues in other Arup disciplines, and external clients; enabling them to manage their costs, programme and risk and helping the owners of existing assets to understand and solve problems.
  • Everything in the built environment relies on the use of materials. As a consequence, the materials team enjoy the opportunity to work in virtually every market that Arup work in, providing specialist materials advice. With experts in concrete, metals, glass, stone, brick, ceramics, timber and composites, we advise at all stages of a project, from concept design through the full life-cycle.
  • Our specialists explore different combinations of materials, devise test programmes and carry out design and field research. This is based on knowledge – from tried and tested processes, such as forming and fabricating metals, to using glass structurally in adventurous new ways, and selecting more sustainable materials and processes to reduce resource consumption and environmental impacts.
  • We apply materials in novel and challenging ways, focussing on the importance of context. For our clients this means enhanced choice, based on optimised cost/value and reduced risks. We are passionate about making materials work and many of our team are members of or advisors to influential industry bodies. Our advice is truly independent and based on the most appropriate solution for a given application because our materials specialists are not linked to material suppliers and do not need to provide work for an in-house test facility.
  • We reduce our clients' risk and provide freedom of choice, particularly when involved in the early stages of a project. This enables our clients to design and build more innovative, challenging and valuable projects. Our rigorous research on materials and manufacturing methods provides reassurance that the materials are used appropriately, aesthetically and cost effectively to produce a robust and durable solution.
  • We are looking for a Summer Intern for a 6 week period between June and August in 2024.
