Our engineers play a key role in major civil, security and defence programmes around the world, covering hardware, software and systems development.
Hardware engineers are involved in the full lifecycle of a product, from requirement capture through prototyping, schematic capture and simulation, and then onto supporting Printed Circuit Board (PCB) layout and manufacture before build, test and qualification.
Software engineers play a key role in the whole product development lifecycle, developing high-integrity, real-time embedded software for Leonardo’s world-class products. Our software is vital to delivering the capability of our products in areas such as: command and control, tracking, signal processing, image processing, navigation, HMI, interfacing and communications.
Systems engineers are pivotal to ensuring our product designs are optimised to meet a wide range of challenging requirements, designing the system architecture and algorithms that deliver the capability expected from our world leading products.
Mechanical engineers are involved in the design and development of our radar and electro-optic products. They utilise state-of-the-art methods, technology and tools to explore all aspects of the development lifecycle, including stress and thermal analysis, requirements analysis, design, implementation, test, build and product support.
From apprentices to highly experienced engineers, we offer a range of engineering career opportunities.
In line with our commitment to skills development, Leonardo supports its engineers – from apprentices upwards – in achieving various industry-recognised qualifications throughout their careers.
