Aircraft integration engineer


As an aircraft integration engineer you will be responsible for the successful physical integration of aircraft systems. For this purpose, you coordinate systems integration, envelopes, and interfaces inline to aircraft requirements derived from early concepts until all following project phases.

You are a stakeholder of the (aircraft) digital twin. The digital twin supports early validation of requirements and integration procedures, optimizing the design with respect to weight, maintainability (accessibility). Later in the product lifecycle, the digital twin is used for verification purposes too. You will be part of the aircraft team and work closely with design engineers, manufacturing, and quality.
