“My name is Simon and I did a placement working for BAE Systems: a defence company producing everything from submarines to tanks to jet fighters. I worked in the Military Air Solutions Capability at Warton which has its own operational airfield on site. The Typhoon is their biggest contract so far, which is the project I worked on. I worked as an undergraduate Flight Test Engineer which mainly involved writing flight test plans, analysing flight data and monitoring live telemetry.”

Why I loved it:

“I was very welcomed and absolutely loved it!”

What I learned:

“I learnt a lot of vital skills everyone will need to get a job in industry that you can’t learn in the lecture centre!”
