Airbus is the largest aeronautics and space company in Europe and a worldwide leader. In 2016, total revenues were € 67 billion and the company employed 134,000 globally. As well as commercial aircraft manufacture, the company also has Space, Defence and Helicopter Divisions. It is an innovative company and consistently captures about half of all commercial airliner orders. As the world’s No. 1 helicopter manufacturer, Airbus provides the most efficient civil and military helicopter solutions to its customers, often in highly demanding environments. The company also contributes to national defence and security through strong capabilities in military aircraft and cybersecurity. Airbus's space technologies have a growing impact on our daily lives: from deep-space exploration and scientific missions to today’s most reliable telecommunications and Earth observation satellites.

Jack Johnson, physics graduate, and Zoë Hardman, Surrey alumnus, will talk about their experience of working at Airbus. Jack will focus on the overlap from his physics background to his job in aerospace engineering, currently working on RF antennas. Our speakers will also cover Airbus’ business areas and the recruitment process, along with STEM Ambassador and Outreach opportunities that Airbus employees are encouraged to engage with.

The talk starts at 1pm and closes at 2pm. Lunch is available from 12.40pm in 30BB03.
