Job summary

Automation includes a range of engineering subdisciplines including instruments, process control, safety systems, communications and cyber security enable digitally secure, safe, reliable and optimal control of complex energy facilities, including our oil refineries and biofuels plants, oil and gas production facilities, green and blue hydrogen production, on-shore and off-shore wind, solar and integrated mobility solutions.

It is the control & automation engineer’s job to optimise production and enhance safety by making improvements to process control, as well as designing and maintaining the distributed control systems that house these controls. The instruments and protective systems role consists of three primary specialist areas including field instrumentation, safety instrumented systems (SIS), and fire and gas systems, all of these systems play critical role in safe and reliable operations, environment and personnel protection. Operations critical telecommunications engineers provide and support critical operational technology systems, connectivity, and networks to enhance bp’s safety, security, communications and operations in the field. The automation systems digital security role supports operations, projects and emerging technologies in understanding cyber security risks related to automation systems, developing solutions and processes to conform to bp requirements.

About the Role
At bp, we’re reimagining energy for people and our planet. With operations working across almost every part of the energy system, we’re leading the way in reducing carbon emissions and developing more sustainable methods for solving the energy challenge.
We’re a diverse team of engineers, scientists, traders and business professionals determined to find answers to problems that must be solved. But we know we can’t do it alone. We’re looking for people who share our passion for reinvention to bring a new perspective, collaborative spirit, and to challenge our thinking in our ambition to achieve net zero!
Innovation & Engineering (I&E) is one of bp’s new business groups and is positioned to be an engine for innovation across bp. It plays a key role in redefining bp into a successful, financially resilient low carbon company. Within I&E, the Applied Sciences teams will apply science, in combination with engineering, digital and commercial capabilities from across I&E, to help realize our Net Zero future.
As an intern you could find yourself:
  • Designing and building process plant control systems, which means incredible variety. One day you could be working out the best way to control a biofuels reactor, the next you could be working on installing an advanced control system (a kind of autopilot) for blue hydrogen production.
  • Working with the latest sensing, measurement & analysis instrument technologies, learning design and application of safety instrumented systems in production, refining, pipelines, carbon capture, hydrogen generation facilities, bio fuels and renewable energy facilities. Learning and development of instruments and protections systems utilised in Electric vehicles, battery charging and storage systems. Working with miniature sensors through to wireless instruments to develop energy systems integrating wind, solar and green hydrogen energy systems.
  • Working with an incredibly diverse and distributed team of experienced engineers with a global perspective. Automation touches everything in bp, even our rapid battery charging solutions require cyber secure safe control systems. Who knows where this could lead?
About You
  • Must have cumulative and major GPA of 3.2 or higher
  • Pursuing bachelor’s degree from a recognized institute of higher learning, ideally focused in Electrical Engineering or related field
  • Graduating December 2023 or May 2024
