// Careers in Engineering
Where you begin your career can have a profound impact on your future success. That’s why it makes sense to explore opportunities that offer the training, support and resources that will provide you with a solid foundation for achievement and growth. And that’s exactly what you’ll find at DENSO. With operations in 15 countries there are always opportunities! Through our approach to developing our people we can enable our Associates to grow and progress within DENSO in Europe or around the DENSO world.
Bring your innovative ideas to life.
The scope of DENSO's Engineering functions in Europe is incredibly broad. In its simplest terms our engineers have responsibility for the latest technology in our business. They are involved in research, in automotive industry trend analysis, and in advanced, development or application engineering. They conduct prototype development and validation testing of components, systems and full vehicles, and they work in partnership with our customers and our global engineering teams.
Europe as a region brings its own unique opportunities. Europe is a leading region for vehicle regulations particularly in terms of safety and emissions. European customers demand technologies for both high-speed motorway driving environments and low emission, high traffic-density city driving. All of these elements bring a wide range of opportunities for a leading technology supplier such as DENSO. In order to seize those opportunities, we have extensive facilities for product development in Europe - located within our engineering centres in Italy, Germany, the UK and Sweden. Most are located close to our most important customers, and our facilities are equipped according to our needs at that location:
Thermal systems, Material Engineering, Information and Safety systems as well as Production Innovation Centre
Wegberg near Aachen, Germany
Powertrain (Diesel) systems and Electric and Hybrid Systems
Powertrain (Diesel & Gasoline) systems, Thermal systems and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
Powertrain (Diesel & Gasoline) systems, ITS and Safety systems
At DENSO we're at the cutting edge of technology. We are constantly looking for ways to make a car more fuel-efficient and economical, comfortable to drive, safe, and convenient. We're developing new ways for people to interact with their car or to minimise its impact on the environment through electrification technologies.
We continue to invest in new facilities to support our engineering activities, for example we opened the newly expanded Aachen Engineering Centre (AEC) in 2015, to focus on powertrain and electric and hybrid vehicles for the future, and undertake research projects in conjunction with Universities.
But of course, we don't just invest in facilities, we invest in our engineers too. Developing your career within engineering can lead either to specialisation in your chosen area, or to a management role, where you would be responsible for leading other engineers or leading global projects. In both cases, you would be helping to develop new product strategies for the future of DENSO.
