Aerospace software development engineer
Job roles: Aerospace software development engineer
Aerospace software development engineers play a crucial role in the development, production and maintenance of aircraft. This highly skilled role will see you learn how to validate, test and modify software so that it complies with strict design and safety requirements. You will also study aspects of modelling and simulation, human factors and systems engineering in order to become a fully rounded engineer.
On an Aerospace Software Development Engineer apprenticeship, you will gain specialised knowledge in the fields of algorithms, how to apply appropriate engineering operations and toolsets, engineering mathematics, and how to make architectural decisions about software. Working as an aerospace software development engineer, you will be modifying and upgrading systems throughout their lifecycle, so you will be expected to demonstrate coding ability as well as have a key analytical eye. Your apprenticeship will teach you to use and interpret engineering data and documentation – such as engineering requirements, specifications, designs, code, and test specifications. You will also have to be proactive in finding solutions to problems and identifying areas for improving the business. At each stage of your apprenticeship, you will be able to work with appropriate supervision, while taking progressively more responsibility for the quality and accuracy of the work you undertake.
To qualify for this apprenticeship, you will need 240+ UCAS points at A-level or equivalent, including maths plus at least one further STEM-based subject such as physics, ICT, computing or electronics. The apprenticeship typically takes 48 months to complete.
