Test Engineering is part of the Operations directorate based at our Manufacturing Centre of Excellence. Manufacturing consists of the Assembly, Integration and Test of all our products for the company. The products we make are delivered directly to the customer/end user and therefore manufacturing are vitally important to the delivery aspects of MBDAs business.
What’s the opportunity
Test engineering is a diverse function covering a wide range of technical disciplines, ensuring quality at every stage of production. We have sub-teams covering the entire build process of our products – from individual circuit cards, to launch platforms and bespoke factory test equipment.
We work closely with our design teams to influence the testability of our products, and are also responsible for:
- The industrial validations of our production lines;
- Diagnostics and fault finding throughout production;
- Test-specific tooling design;
- Development of test and measurement techniques;
- Development of new manufacturing processes;
- Instructions on how to test our products;
- Day-to-day support of our operators building and testing our products;
- Providing training to operators and engineers.
The breadth of activities carried out by test engineering means that there’s a balance of work carried out in the office environment, and activities on the factory floor. There are also opportunities to support production at other MBDA facilities, in the UK and overseas.
