Our collaborative approach and culture of sharing knowledge will be key to your development. We trust each other to thrive; support one another to learn, and when you join us, you’ll bring a different perspective to how we see the future.

Systems Engineers work on our products at any point in their lifecycle, helping the Military to define, develop and prove both current & future weapon systems.

Based in our Bristol, Bolton and Stevenage sites, we’re looking for under-graduates to conceptualise new products, investigate exciting scientific breakthroughs, and develop state of the art technology.

You’ll complete a placement based on a project that could be at any stage in a range of areas, from future capabilities to in-service products.

Through the placement, we’ll help you understand the make-up of a missile or a weapon system; from the warhead to the seeker in the missile to the wider weapon system components. Working closely with external parties, subcontractors and government customers you’ll gain experience of many systems engineering methods and tools, such as Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), Matlab and Simulink.

We’re looking for undergrads who are currently studying towards a degree in any STEM related subject.
