The Stevenage Materials laboratory is a fast paced environment, testing around 9000 samples a year for various projects.
We are a small dynamic multi-skilled team providing Materials testing support and analysis to scientific programmes and to telecommunication satellite programmes. Our laboratory use a wide range of equipment and testing techniques and will offer you exciting opportunities, and challenges, to learn.
Through materials testing we ensure that flight hardware meets the exacting requirements needed for the space environment.
You will visit Sheffield Hallam University 6 times a year, spending 3.5 days at the University on each visit. Accommodation will be organised and paid for by Airbus HR.
