Apprentice. Modifications on the A320 family aircraft in Toulouse, France

In June 2007, I obtained a French scientific high school diploma, with a specialization in Engineering Sciences and in Physics and Chemistry. I am currently preparing an undergraduate technological degree (DUT) in Mechanical and Production Engineering in Aerospace. During my studies, I had the chance to start an apprenticeship within Airbus in France.

This is a very rewarding apprenticeship which enables me to put into practice the technical skills I have learnt at school and work on concrete projects. I work in the configuration management department at Airbus in France Programme level, with the change process team. We are in charge of running the various steps of the change process and to pilot all standard evolutions from the request to the implementation on the aircraft. This apprenticeship requires a good level of English since I'm working with an international team.

If you want to follow a career in Aeronautics, join Airbus. Why? First of all, it is the first aircraft manufacturer in Europe. This company is always working on improving its world presence; it will confirm its innovative reputation through the expansion of its new A350 programme.

Moreover, Airbus offers excellent training programmes to its employees so that they can improve not only their technical skills but also interpersonal and communication skills (including foreign languages). Working in such a large company also provides you with the opportunity of having a challenging and diverse career.
