Would you like to join a team of engineers working on some of the world’s most advanced radar systems, for one of the UK’s largest defence companies?
As a Systems Engineer on a summer placement you will be using your problem solving skills to design, analyse and investigate complex radar systems. You will learn and grow your skillset within a mixed team of developing and already experienced engineers. You will also have the chance to work alongside other specialists such as software, mechanical and radio-frequency engineers.
You will join a team that is responsible for delivering quality products and services to our customers, as they depend on the capability of our radars and our ability to support them through their lifecycle. As a team, we are proud that our End User commitment is second to none.
Within a 3 month placement it may not be possible to cover the complete scope of what is outlined below.
Follow you passion with the following responsibilities:
As a systems engineer, you will be involved in the design and support of radar systems throughout the engineering development lifecycle; from requirements definition and management through to system design and in service support. Your responsibilities will include:
- Analysing data to assess system performance and investigate the effect of design changes and experimental builds
- Creating, modifying and using computational models to simulate radar behaviour to inform design decisions
- Designing outcomes to improve existing and future systems using knowledge gained from analysis, modelling and testing
- Discussing and sharing ideas with other members of the team to better understand a problem and help develop a response
In addition, your work may include practical activities working with radar hardware but in the course of a 3 month placement this cannot be guaranteed.
