About this role

  • Enthusiasm for learning
  • Problem-solving
  • Teamwork

Manufacturing Engineers are responsible for deciding the best way to build a complete aircraft. They start with a design that’s made up of multiple components, then come up with a plan on how to put it all together in a way that’s efficient, safe and cost effective. This involves step-by-step assembly instructions, and deciding what equipment and tools are needed.

It is important to support and communicate with different people, including other engineering teams, suppliers (where and who to get parts from), and assembly workers who are putting the parts together. 

A big part of engineering is about solving problems and coming up with a better way to do things, which can mean looking into interesting, new technologies and innovations, like 3D printing for example.
