Closing date for this role is midnight on Monday 22nd January.
What we can offer you:
- 10 month undergraduate placement starting September 2024
- Fantastic site facilities, including subsidised meals and free car parking
- A placement that allows you to apply your university learning to real-world engineering projects and technologies

Hybrid working pattern: You'll gain lots of hands on experience in our labs and as such, time onsite is likely to be full time.

Electrical/Electronic Engineers within the Missile Architecture function are deployed across various exciting projects to define the topology and system level design for our missiles, as well as manage the missile electrical/electronic equipment.
During your placements you'll get the opportunities to work on the design and specification of the overall system, learn including how to undertake and manage design and performance trade-off studies, influence delivery of bespoke subsystem electrical/electronic equipment into the project (e.g. control units, PSUs, data links, actuation systems, telemetry units, etc.) along with the possibility to assist with testing and trials of components and missiles during the development phase.
