Information Systems Engineering - Industrial Placement

As an Information Systems Engineer, you’ll have the opportunity to work on a range of projects, developing your capabilities across many different disciplines.

Military Air & Information (MAI) is the air sector of BAE Systems, responsible for the design and build of fixed wing military and training aircraft, as well as providing training, support and information services for the UK RAF and other customers worldwide.

MAI Engineering is split into 25 different engineering disciplines. This engineering role is for the Information Systems Engineering (ISE) discipline based either at Warton Unit or Christchurch. The vision of ISE is to provide high integrity, secure, innovative and interoperable information system products which are fundamental to improving the probability of winning military and non-military business in both home and export markets either directly as an integrated information systems product or as information systems components within MAI systems and platforms.

The ISE discipline is responsible for the management and development of the Capability to apply Systems Engineering approaches in order to conceive, realise and support directly customer-funded Information Systems that manage, exchange, manipulate and/or display information used in one or more of the customer's processes. ISE can also include the provision of an Information System in an information Managed Service context. It is managed through eight distinct sub-capabilities:-

• Architecting
• Experimentation, Visualisation and Demonstration 
• Enterprise/Battlespace Integration 
• High Integrity Information Systems Engineering
• COTS/MOTS Product Selection & Integration
• Networking & Storage Solutions
• Security Design and Accreditation
• Information Service Provision and Management

During your placement/ internship you would be involved in a number of areas related to the ISE discipline, primarily at either Warton Unit or the Christchurch site, to develop a broad understanding of air platforms, the engineering lifecycle and the role the discipline plays to underpin the design, development, test, maintenance and support of BAE Systems products.
