Philips & Brunel Talent Program

The Philips & Brunel Talent Program is a unique and customized three-year program in collaboration with Royal Philips and Brunel focused on starters with a completed technical master’s degree. During your master’s, you gained considerable knowledge in the fields of Physics, Electrical, Mechanical and Mechatronics of Industrial Engineering — now it’s time to put it to practice!

With Philips nurturing your technical growth and Brunel focusing on your personal and professional skills, the Philips & Brunel Talent Program aims to fully support and facilitate your development. Together with your fellow trainees, you will face this challenge!

Your career opportunities

The Philips & Brunel Talent Program fits well with positions in technical project environments where soft skills and technical knowledge are addressed together. You will be part of a technical project team where you will be in contact with internal and external stakeholders, both nationally and internationally. The program offers the possibility to develop either in a broad technical sense or to specialize. Apart from technical growth, we will also challenge you as a person.

Depending on your ambitions and career path, you can work in different departments within Royal Philips during the first three years of the traineeship; in the third year, you’ll get the chance to hire and coach a new trainee yourself or enter an international position.

Think of positions such as System Engineer, Constructor and Designer as a chance for future growth towards Senior System Engineer, Senior Constructor, Senior Designer, Architect, Project Lead or Team Lead.
