Working with electrical distribution boxes, particularly dealing with weight management responsibilities and design activities. Working with various teams (mechanical, electrical, costing, sourcing) to process and evolve the design of each aircraft panel.
The role mainly had me sitting at my computer, working from home and coding in python. I have been given my own project from day one and been building it from POC to productionisation over the past year. I’ve developed my understanding of other languages like SQL and Spark along with learning a lot about how the business runs and how to function as a productive member of a large scale business.
I really enjoyed my time with GE Aviation as I was treated equally and never felt I was inferior to anyone in the business. The Cell was friendly and supportive and I felt I had developed good relationships with a range of personalities. Especially throughout a difficult period in lockdown I always enjoyed coming into work and interacting with a wholesome and likeminded group of people. I would thoroughly enjoy working within the business again.
I really enjoyed the internship, I was part of a small but very friendly team that made each day interesting and engaging. During the early stages, there was so much to learn that the weeks flew by trying to keep up. Once you are settled in, you are able to really make your own imprint on the various responsibilities and daily tasks that you have. I particularly enjoyed the balance between time in the office, at the shopfloor and a different parts of the business.
The 12-month placement was mostly an enjoyable experience. It gave me an insight into how the aviation industry operates and triggered an interest in aviation. During the placement I was given a variety of different tasks and worked with several teams. Although it was not a main part of the placement, I was also given the opportunity to see different parts of the business that I was not involved with, which added to the variety and meant I could see how each stage of product development operates. Workload varied throughout the placement, so at times there wasn't much to do and to take some time to be given tasks despite asking for more work several times.
I enjoyed the placement because i was able to liaise with different teams around the world. Furthermore, I was entrusted to deliver projects and I was given huge responsibilities. The job was awesome and my colleagues were fantastic, however, the location was not my favourite one. from a night-life perspective, there wasn't much to do in Cheltenham and I did not experience many group activities. Overall it was a positive experience that I helped me to develop my skills.
I enjoyed every aspect of my internship, i would love to work for there company in the future, as I’m not only interested in the work that they provide, but the role that I can play for the business. I felt apart of something big during my placement and would encourage any other student to get involved and join GE. As you get treated with respect and you are given lots of responsibilities and learning experiences.
The role I undertook was externally ‘Operations Management’ but internally referred to as Materials Planner. I loved my time at GE Aviation, I was exposed to more than I could have possibly imagined. From facilitating meetings with senior managers to running a variety of production lines, I was able to see different levels of the business from a variety of different perspectives. I was never made to feel like an intern and was entrusted with more responsibility than I could have imagined.
My placement year was very enjoyable, you learn a great deal while also being amongst other placement students so it feels like uni. The work is varied and they give you the opportunity to take on further projects as well as work on a large intern project with everyone else so there’s little chance of being bored, given there’s so much to get on with. Just make sure you make it clear you want to change up your tasks though.
I loved my time with GE Aviation! it was the best decision I ever made. I enjoyed the fact I was able to try many different things and have an impact on numerous projects. I felt extremely protected as an intern yet at the same time felt I had to freedom to lead on projects. The variety and ability to experience so much of the business made the work extremely exciting. I have learnt so much in 14 months and would highly recommend GE Aviation to anyone.
I enjoyed my placement, it was interesting to work in a factory with a team of skilled engineers. The beginning of the internship was a little slow as I didn’t receive much guidance but after a few months I really enjoyed it. I was given plenty of responsibility and trusted with my own projects as well as taking part in group projects with other interns. My site had a lot of interns which was good for social events
It was a great experience where I was able to develop a number of valuable skills from; project management to LEAN Six Sigma to leadership. The quality of mentoring is next too none and I would hope to return one day. The internship program is exceptional, in the respect that it aids both the employees and companies development. I would recommend the internship to anybody considering a career in aviation or even as broad as manufacturing.
My experience working at GE Aviation was invaluable. I had the opportunity to work with members from several departments on different projects which not only helped build my interpersonal skills but also encouraged me to develop technical skills by observing how experienced team members approach problems. This was especially important due to the main project I worked on being a research and development program. Exploring new technologies for aviation was thrilling. It was great to have been able to be a part of that project which I hope to see progress further in the news.
