The Electronic department provides complex electronic solutions to meet the demanding needs of missile, launch platforms and other support equipment.
“We start at the requirements and develop architectures, these then follow into the detailed design phase (the actual circuit design) and then to the verification, validation and qualification of the hardware where we test the hardware to provide evidence that our designs do what we expect them to do (verification) and meet the customers’ requirements (Validation). We then carry out tests in extreme conditions to ensure the products will operate in the harsh conditions they have to survive in (Qualification).” Leo, Graduate.
The summer placement programme is an excellent starting point if you are considering a future Graduate scheme with us.
You will be part of a small team (usually 8 people) of other undergraduate summer placement students. The placement will last 3 months, during which you will be given a missile related project to plan, manage, design and deliver. How you meet the solution will be down to you and your team members to determine. To help guide you, you will be supported by experienced engineers from multiple engineering disciplines (Mechanical, Test Systems, Software, etc.). You will also have dedicated mentors to help you both technically and professionally.
The projects will encompass and provide development in one or a number of the following electronics design related skills:
“The project I was working on felt like a real one and that gave a brilliant insight into working in the engineering industry and at MBDA. This was helped along by my project leaders who were brilliant. They were knowledgeable and keen to assist me when I needed guidance. They were also friendly and approachable.” Adi, Electronics Summer Placement.
