Summer Internships

My favourite thing about working for Electronic Systems is that I am involved in mission critical electronic programmes which I really enjoy. I feel that I am doing important work on a daily basis by helping my team create a product that is at the cutting edge of technology and has a legitimate use and need within the avionics and aerospace markets.
