The role of the Electronic Engineering function is to provide MBDA programmes with electronic equipment for missiles, test equipment and launch systems. The electronic equipment we make ranges from weapon controller units and actuator electronics to telemetry & communication systems.
Our products need to function in especially harsh environments! It is also vital that our designs are reliable and safe, as well as needing to meet other results-oriented requirements – our sophisticated equipment usually has to fit into very confined spaces. These design constraints make the equipment we design very niche which means we require original ideas and innovative approaches to the way we design our electronic products.
Gain knowledge of the full design process for circuits and systems, which are used throughout the whole product range, current and future!
Spend 4 x 6-month placements developing your knowledge and gaining hands on experience in a combination of the areas below:
Placements can be chosen so that they match technologies already specialised in at university as well as to try out different ones. Take a visit to our Bolton manufacturing site to bring to life the work you do. Experience the entire ‘design, make, prove’ process. Join a team that is dedicated and focussed on delivery and technical excellence; rewarding both technically and on a personal level.
Working with hardworking and experienced engineers, in a friendly and encouraging environment, offers one of the best ways to commence your career and achieve a real feeling of success.
Working with other departments and being given the opportunity to work independently within a team provides invaluable knowledge of the company and our engineering processes, a must have for future career aspirations.
You will have the opportunity for travel to the company’s other home nations (France Germany and Italy), depending on projects being worked on.
The Graduate Scheme is accredited with the IET and you will be given support, including 100% fees paid, to work towards C. Eng registration. I. Eng registration can also be supported where appropriate.
The Electronics graduate scheme can provide early experience in management; from leading the summer placements and Work Experience programs to the running of a development lab in the electronics lab coordinator role, in order to meet required aspects of the IET accreditation.
