Job Description

Start date: 6th July 2020

Location: Filton

To stay on top, Airbus recognises the importance of supporting high-achieving and talented undergraduates. We do this through offering challenging internship opportunities during which your skills and potential are fully maximised.

Our internships give a unique insight into potential career paths within Airbus. They are designed so that you can put your theoretical knowledge into practice and gain crucial industry experience. The knowledge you gain will improve your chances of a future role within the Airbus and should benefit your future studies.

The Airframe Tolerancing team within Airbus Engineering provides specialist tolerancing (dimensional variation management) solutions for all Airbus programmes such as A380, A400M, A350 and Wing of Tomorrow. We have representatives in France, Germany and Spain, and the UK, and are managed centrally from Toulouse. We also have ties with Airbus Americas and Airbus India Engineering.

In the UK we work on complex metallic and composite wing structures, but also control systems. Europe wide we also work on fuselage, control surfaces and systems, cabin and cargo, helicopters and space vehicles. We integrate with engineering design, stress, aerodynamic, manufacturing, and quality departments, among others, within a global digitised environment.

The internship gives fascinating insight into the design, manufacture and installation of airframe and, particularly, wing structures. Understanding how a wing is designed, and manufactured, and applying appropriate tolerancing solutions is essential for achieving the required quality, cost and timing in a competitive market.

This is your chance to develop specialist skills necessary to the global aircraft market and beyond!

Tasks and Accountabilities:

During this internship, the activities you may undertake will include;

· Deploy Key Characteristics / Important Features.
