To stay on top, Airbus recognises the importance of supporting high-achieving and talented undergraduates. We do this through offering challenging internship opportunities during which your skills and potential are fully maximised.
Our internships give a unique insight into potential career paths within Airbus. They are designed so that you can put your theoretical knowledge into practice and gain crucial industry experience. The skills and knowledge you gain will improve your chances of a future role within the Airbus and should benefit your future studies.
The Airbus Defence & Space Assembly, Integration and Test (AIT) department has an opportunity for an Intern to work alongside the Payload Test and Validation workstream. The department is a world leading centre of excellence for Payload AIT activities. Here we build and test the custom part of the satellite called the Payload whether it is for a Telecommunications, Earth observation or Navigation satellites.
The Test and Validation workstream within AIT own all the activities related to test of the Payload. This includes the Electrical Integration (checks of DC harness and equipment functionality), Thermal Tests, Workmanship tests (EMC) and RF performance measurements. The RF performance measurements ensures that the workmanship is to the highest of standards. The final measurements are referred to the “Baseline” tests which are the reference to which all future test phases are referred to. Generally these are after mechanical, environmental tests and after launch. All RF test solutions are designed and developed in house before being deployed to operational use in the cleanroom.
Main activities will include:
Please note our Internships are open to Undergraduates only. Therefore it is mandatory for candidates to be an undergraduate for the whole duration of the placement.
