Published: Friday, 10 March 2017   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Dyson is set to create more high-skilled jobs and advance its research and development activities with the construction of a second technology campus in the Cotswolds.

The new build will be located close to the company’s headquarters in Malmesbury, and represents an attempt to increase Dyson’s UK footprint.

Over recent years the company has invested hugely in expanding on a global basis, but the new 517-acre Hullavington Campus is an investment for the future of Dyson within the UK.

The company is well renowned for its domestic appliances, and has so far committed £2.5 billion to future technologies and spends £7 million a week on research and development activities.

A former RAF base will be the location of the new campus and it is expected to develop into a global hub for future research and development.

Investing in the future

Dyson – who are the largest UK investor in robotics – is currently development plans for machine learning, AI, vision systems and solid-state battery cells.

The news comes after Dyson recently announced the opening of it Singapore Technology Centre, where engineering teams will research and develop new tools and technologies for future connected homes.

In Malmesbury, Dyson is also set to invest £250 million into facilities, including Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology – which Is set to open in September.

Dyson are currently applying for degree awarding powers, allowing it to become a new university, which will focus on combining academic learning with a hands-on experience working with Dyson’s engineering team.

James Dyson, founder of the firm, said: “The UK’s skills shortage is holding Dyson back as we look to increase the amount of technology we develop and export from the UK. We are taking matters into our own hands. The new degree course offers academic theory, a real-world job and salary, and access to experts in their field.”
