What is
Engineering?

An engineer's work is based around identifying problems and then innovating solutions. Engineers build a better future by applying their skills to everything from mobile phones to medicines, submarines and aircraft.
Globally, BAE Systems employs engineers from a vast range of disciplines, including electrical, manufacturing, mechanical, software and systems engineering. Find out more about the different types of engineering below.
 

Electrical & Electronic Engineering

 
Electrical and electronic engineers make decisions about electronic product content, optimise hardware and software design concepts, develop sophisticated design processes and test complex products.
 

Manufacturing Engineering

 
Maufacturing engineers balance costs, safety and quality to transform theoretical designs into physical products that satisfy our customers.
 

Mechanical Engineering

 
Mechanical engineers work to turn ideas into products. They deal with the design, fabrication, installation, operation, application, maintenance and maintenance of mechanical or electromechanical systems.
 

Software Engineering

 
Software engineers work at the heart of our electrical products at all stages of the product lifecycle. They are involved in determining initial requirements, designing functional prototypes, developing production standard solutions and testing the finished product to its limits.
 

Systems Engineering

 
Systems engineers take a top level view of a problem situation; integrating the elements of other engineering disciplines to create an effective engineering solution.
