Engineering graduate handling tasks within our offshore wind portfolio Do you want to start your career with exciting challenges and take part in transforming the energy supply of the future by developing and enabling green, independent and economically viable energy systems?
 
Become a DONG Energy graduate and kick-start your career by applying your academic skills to real-life projects and challenges while optimising your professional and personal competences.
 
Join us as graduate in Wind Turbines Engineering which is the key knowledge-hub for technical knowledge and resources for our wind turbines and related services. You will rotate between the following three departments and work towards the same subject matter from different angles; The Measurements department works with metocean, load measurements and power curve verification. The Energy Yield Assessment department works with modelling annual energy production on our wind farms. The WTG Mechanical department works with all matters related to design and verification of mechanical components in Wind Turbine Generators.  
 
In Wind Power, we build, develop and operate wind farms in Northern Europe to produce cleaner, more reliable energy without compromising on the safety of our employees or the environment. We are responsible for more than a third of the world's offshore wind capacity, and we will be able to supply clean power to 16 million Europeans by 2020. 
 
You will be based at our office in Gentofte in the Greater Copenhagen area. However, you should expect some travelling in relation to your work.
