Investigating careers in Airbus

In this resource careers in Airbus are explored, including in particular the engineering roles that are available. Students are able to see the wide number of roles that Airbus needs to function as a company, but how the Engineering roles are critical and numerous within the organisation. Several case studies of Engineers from Airbus are used. Students then take on the role of a design engineer, and produce a paper plane to simulate how good design can lead to planes being able to fly longer distances using smaller amounts of fuel. Students continue to produce a fact file that demonstrates their knowledge of engineering companies. This resource has not been produced by Airbus.
