MBDA Missile Systems - Together. For the Future of Defence.Electronics Graduate 2023
Join the Electronic Engineering department for a chance to play a fundamental role in bringing together MBDA's missile systems: designing and integrating the electronics that drive our Weapon Control Units, Actuators, Telemetry & Communication Systems and more!
We have a reputation for quality and innovation, and we maintain this by encouraging original ideas, innovative approaches and allowing our Engineers the space to design and produce solutions that meet the challenges.What will you be doing?
Over the course of your Graduate Scheme in Electronic Engineering you will gain exposure to the full Electronic Engineering product lifecycle, the different electronics that we design, the various teams within the department, and the different projects that we're working on. In addition to this, you will get to know the department, build your network, and get involved with department organisation and management activities.
Your Graduate Scheme will consist of four 6-month placements where you will develop your knowledge and gain hands on experience in a combination of the following areas:
- Motor control and drive systems for Actuation Systems
- Communications and RF design for Datalinks and Telemetry Systems
- Safety Critical Arming Units
- FPGA firmware
- Digital and microprocessor design for Seeker Systems and Weapon Controller Units
- Test solutions and equipment
- New and emerging technologies for Internal Research and Development
There may also be opportunity for you to undertake a placement at our manufacturing facility in Bolton or at EE's French office in Paris, France.
Placements can be planned to match the technologies that you have specialised in at university, as well as give you the opportunity to try out new ones, and we ensure that all Graduate Engineers experience the entire ‘design, make, prove' process, helping you on your way to becoming a well-rounded Engineer.
Whilst on the EE Graduate Scheme, you will also gain some early experience in management: organising and leading the EE Summer Placement and work experience program, organising a regular visit to the MBDA EE France office, organising a regular visit to the EE Bolton manufacturing facility, managing the EE laboratory and supporting EE improvements and knowledge management activities.
These activities will not only support your IET accreditation application, but they will also provide you with some excellent opportunities to grow your organisational skills, your confidence and your network.What's great about joining this team?
Whilst on the EE Graduate Scheme you will work with a wide range of our hardworking and experienced electronic engineers in a friendly and encouraging environment. This offers one of the best ways to commence your career and set yourself up for success.
You will experience working independently, working in focused electronics teams, and working in dynamic multi-disciplinary teams, where you may be exposed to mechanical, software and servomechanism design, and you will have to work closely and directly integrate with them.
Each of these environments will provide invaluable knowledge of the company and our engineering processes.
Depending on the projects that you work on, you may have the opportunity to travel to non UK MBDA locations (France Germany and Italy) for integration activities, meetings and equipment testing.
The EE Graduate Scheme is accredited with the IET and you will be given support, including 100% fees paid, to work towards C. Eng registration. I. Eng registration can also be supported where appropriate.Entry Criteria, Salary and Benefits
