Airbus Internships

Do you want to gain valuable experience and take on responsibility from the start? Then apply for an internship at Airbus.

We work within the composite panel manufacture and assembly, as well as the structure assembly, integration and test, which are built within various levels of cleanroom conditions.

On a typical day you will be responsible for several projects within the department and supporting other engineers in their daily work (such as bar chart production reviews and an array of improvement projects).

The candidate will have an opportunity to identify other areas of work and drive their own initiatives should they wish.
