Systems Engineer Graduate 2022
Our products are sophisticated! - Systems Engineers work on our products at any point in their lifecycle with a wealth of different experiences to get involved in. Systems Engineers also engage with an array of different people allowing for exciting opportunities such as helping the Military to define, develop & prove both current & future weapon systems. Based in our Bristol and Stevenage sites, our teams are looking for graduates to join them in:
  • Conceptualising new products and technologies;
  • Investigating exciting scientific principals and breakthroughs;
  • Delivering new capabilities through developing state of the art technology;
  • Conducting system studies to define the weapon systems of tomorrow
  • Writing system and sub-system level specifications and interface definitions;
  • Developing and managing requirements;
  • Requirements proving, validation and certification;
  • Simulating weapon system performance and analysing missile trials data;
  • Planning, modelling and adapting missile routes, both pre-flight and during flight, to optimise the effectiveness of the weapon;
  • System integration, testing, data analysis and qualification.

Due to the nature of the work involved, you will work with a diverse range of people at all levels across the business. You will be able to utilise and develop technical engineering and personal skills due to the wide variety of work available.
Programme Structure
By completing four six-month placements working in a variety of projects at different stages in areas from future capabilities to in-service products, your placements will enable you to experience different aspects of Systems Engineering. We'll help you to choose your future career based on interests and skills you already have, or ones you wish to learn and develop during the 2 years.

There is an opportunity to do one six-month placement in another part of the company, outside of Systems Engineering. Alternatively, placements can be arranged with a company related to MBDA; for example, a supplier, MoD, Air Warfare Centre (dependent on availability).

Through the programme, 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.

There may be opportunities to travel both within the U.K and internationally and collaborate with other MBDA employees based in France, Germany and Italy.

You'll be supported by experienced engineers to work towards Chartership (100% of fees paid during Grad scheme).

You'll get access to different training opportunities, both to develop your soft skills and the technical skills to support your development.
Entry Criteria
Degree qualified in any STEM related subject, minimum 2.2 classification.
