BAE Systems

Software Engineer Summer Internship

As a Software Engineer, you’ll create cutting edge software for our hardware. You’ll be involved in the entire lifecycle of a product, from design and development to integration.

From head up displays and flight controls to missile targeting systems, the quality of our software is every bit as important as our hardware. In this key role, you’ll be responsible for the code that underpins these products. It’s a challenge that will see you getting involved in the entire development lifecycle of a product, from requirements capture to design, development, testing and integration.

As well as writing code, you’ll find yourself carrying out a whole range of important tasks – from communicating with clients and creating UML diagrams to assisting with final system integration.

Work closely with both Electronic and Systems engineers, you'll enable the development of complex real-world systems that have to perform perfectly every time, as the consequences of failure could be catastrophic.

Apply your talent where it counts.
