As an intern you will join the Laboratory Test Means Hydrogen Test team. You will have the opportunity to develop soft and technical skills in a different set of activities that involves design, building and testing, from end to end. These include a challenging and exciting project for aircraft that may fly in the future.
The Laboratory Test Means Architecture and Integration team supports the development and maintenance of laboratory test means for the fuel and landing gear systems in all the Airbus programs.
The test scope of the fluid mechanical team is primarily fluid mechanics, pneumatic and hydraulic aspects of the various systems:
Additionally, new emerging technologies such as zero carbon aviation are increasingly becoming part of the working portfolio.
The main activities performed by this team are:
The department strategy fully supports the Integration and Flight Test center’s vision to develop a ‘single test team’ identity covering all tests from Supplier to Flight Test.
The jobholder will be a member of a Group in the LTM Architecture and Integration department in Filton, working in close relationship with the corresponding test teams.
The aim of this internship is to support the fuels and/or landing gear systems engineers on zero emission-related test activities. The work carried out could be involved with any of the Airbus Aircraft programmes or R&T activities focused on hydrogen topics.
There may also be opportunities to experience other areas within the fuels and landing gear test department including the avionics testing and flight test analysis.
Furthermore, significant opportunities to develop ‘soft’ skills will be available throughout the internship by supporting and conducting a range of development tasks including school liaison events and departmental activities.
Please note, we love your interest in working for Airbus but we do ask that you make only one application. We encourage you to take time to decide which of our exciting opportunities is right for you and then submit an application that best represents you, your skills and experience in connection with the role you have selected.
Our placements are open to Undergraduates only. Therefore it is mandatory for candidates to be an undergraduate for the whole duration of the placement.
