The Electronic Engineering department at MBDA designs complex and highly reliable electronic solutions to meet the demanding needs of missile projects. We work through the whole design process; taking a set of requirements and developing an electronic architecture from them, designing the electronic solution, testing, manufacture, and qualification. As an undergraduate in Electronic Engineering, you will have the opportunity to learn the design process across our range of products and develop yourself as an electronic engineer.
You will be assigned to an actual missile project and given real work that will form part of an actual missile system that will be brought in to service with armed forces around the world. Your undergraduate year at MBDA will be split in to two placements: The first you'll be embedded in our Missile Design team, who focus on the prime Missile Design, and the second as part of our Test Systems team, who focus on designing the test solutions that test and prove our prime design.
This role provides a unique opportunity to develop and broaden technically within a growing company and multi-skilled team. Exposure to complex and technologically advanced projects and products provides a stimulating experience. Working with highly talented and motivated engineers, in a friendly and supportive environment, provides one of the best environments to commence a career and achieve a real feeling of success.
The Electronic Engineering department offers the opportunity to work on all aspects of the ‘design, make, prove’ process for a wide range of complex electronic products as part of the graduate scheme, as part of a dedicated team focussed on delivery and technical excellence, which will be stimulating and rewarding both technically and on a personal level.
Collaborative working with other functions of MBDA will also provide wide knowledge of the company and its operations which will be invaluable when considering future career aspirations. This will require some travel, for instance to France, depending upon the project being worked on.
You will be working towards a degree level or above (minimum 2:2 honours degree or equivalent) in electronic engineering, general engineering (with electronics) or related subjects. A practical knowledge of software development would be beneficial, but not essential.
Competitive salaries, flexible working, paid overtime, a comprehensive pension scheme, employee funded voluntary private healthcare, sporting activities, fantastic site facilities, bonus schemes and superb learning and development opportunities.
