Description of the job

An internship (m/f) for Support for Project Management and Subcontractor Management has arisen within Airbus (Commercial Aircraft) in Toulouse.

You will join the Pylon Transverse Engineering department, which is responsible for design, production support (solutions proposed in the event of a deviation in production with respect to the drawing definitions), and maintenance of the in-service fleet for the engine pylons (solutions and calculations for repairs in the event of in-service incidents, etc.).
The pylon is the aircraft component which supports the engine below the wings, without any interference between the two parts, and which ensures the aerodynamic properties of the zone. Vital aircraft systems (fuel, electricity, hydraulics, air conditioning, etc.) also pass through the pylon.

In this context, you will provide support for project management and engineering subcontracting for the E2S part (local company in Toulouse) and offshore (Airbus Group Design Office located in China) for all of the A320 CEO/NEO, A300/A330 NEO/CEO, A340, A380, A400M, and A350XWB-900/-1000 projects.

This internship will start in September 2017 and last for 6 months.
