Missile Architecture Mechanical Engineer Undergraduate 2023
MBDA Missile Systems – Together. For the Future of Defence.
Electronic Manufacturing Test Engineering 10-month Placement
The Test Engineering team is based at our Manufacturing Centre of Excellence. Manufacturing consists of the Assembly, Integration and Test of all MBDA's products. The products we make are delivered directly to the customer/end user and therefore manufacturing are vitally important to the delivery aspects of our business.
What's the opportunity?
Test engineering is a diverse function covering a wide range of technical fields ensuring quality at every stage of production. We have sub-teams covering the entire build process of our products – from individual circuit cards, to launch platforms and bespoke factory test equipment.
We work closely with our design teams to influence the testability of products from very early stages of development, and are also responsible for:
- The industrial validation of test stages of our production lines;
- Diagnostics and fault finding to support production;
- Test-specific tooling design, and introduction of test equipment to the factory environment;
- Development of test and measurement techniques;
- Development of new processes within our manufacturing system;
- Providing training to operators and engineers, including the generation of instruction documents.
The breadth of activities carried out by test engineering means that there's a balance of work carried out in the office environment, and activities on the factory floor. There are also opportunities to support development and production at other MBDA facilities, in the UK and overseas.
You'll get opportunities to work across a broad spectrum of technologies – electronics, electromechanical systems, radar and electro-optical sensors, and complex integrated systems combining these and more.
During your 10 months on placement with us, you will be deployed to one of the factory's project teams. Here, you'll play a meaningful role in maintaining MBDA's reputation for quality, by working to ensure that every product leaving our manufacturing facility meets the high standards expected by the company and our customers.
