BAE Systems

Systems Engineering Graduate Scheme

As a Systems Engineer, you will work in a holistic, multi-disciplinary role, focusing on the bigger picture and bridging the gaps between disciplines.

As a Systems Engineer you'll look at projects from a holistic point of view. Whereas other engineers focus on specific details, you'll be concerned with the bigger picture. You'll often bridge the gap between the various disciplines (such as Software or Mechanical Design) by using your knowledge of the system to provide appropriate information to each area of engineering.

As a result of this, you'll often be viewed as a multi-discipline engineer. Throughout the different stages of the lifecycle, you'll take the lead in systems integration and testing, qualification and acceptance. As well as the technical aspects of projects, you'll also consider important factors such as schedules, costs, training and environmental concerns.

Apply your talent where it counts.
