Product Engineering - Electronics & Complex Systems Undergraduate

Job description

Automotive systems are increasing in complexity and are highly distributed across the vehicle platform. Electronics systems and their components are the driving force behind our cutting-edge customer facing features, from assisted and automated driving, to the quality of life improvements our customers expect in using their vehicles. The robust design and implementation of a complex system powered by electronics helps positively shape the customers’ experiences through benefits that can be relied upon day in and day out.

At Jaguar Land Rover, our electronics and complex systems engineering teams are responsible for designing and developing these complex systems and their components, to provide the experiences that customers will love for life. During your placement you will work in one of our electronics/complex systems teams and develop experience and insight into our engineering approach.

Within electronic and complex systems engineering there is the opportunity to use cutting-edge tools and processes to follow the systems engineering process. Using model-based techniques to support the design and early validation of the system, and proven electronic design practices, you will support in providing premium features and consistent quality that our customers expect from the Jaguar Land Rover brand. 

There are many different projects that you could be engaged in from the beginning including participating in the system architecture design of the next generation driver assistance systems, lighting features or a world class interior cabin experience. You will engage with stakeholders across the vehicle platform, ensuring that a robust design is implemented by developing the behaviour and interaction between electronic control units to support distributed state logic. Providing quality products for our customers is at the heart of everything we do so we take a proactive approach to identify potential failure modes and noise factors so mitigating actions are put in place to ensure a robust product system is released to the customer.  

You may also support the system and vehicle diagnostic strategy ensuring that all the intricate work that is completed in the systems design phase can be understood by the dealer network. By understanding the intricacies of the design, it will be possible to identify when and how the system might fail so our technicians are able to positively calibrate or change the correct part of the vehicle system - minimizing the impact to our customers.

Rewards and benefits

Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach in your work. And, with on-going support from industry leading experts and continual learning opportunities, you’ll quickly realise that our programmes have been designed to be as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce.

Whichever part of the business you join your hard work and contribution deserves recognition. For those on placements of longer than three months there is a generous holiday allowance. There are a range of other benefits and regular social events so plenty of chances to make friends and have fun too.
