In an effort to increase opportunities in the defence industry for highly skilled employees, we remain committed to increasing our investment in graduate employment and collaboration with academia.

BAE Systems will contribute up to $10 million towards the Joint Open Innovation Network (JOIN) to support new university engineering scholarships, internship and undergraduate industry placements. This project will also involve the creation of new defence-focused courses, and targeted research and development.
