Business description:

Our company is an advanced aerospace manufacturing, repair and overhaul company, committed to precision engineering, aircraft sustainment and additive manufacturing.
We combine engineering expertise and have a team of highly qualified experts, along with fully accredited manufacturing, maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities to deliver best value products and services, reducing life cycle costs whilst improving aircraft operational availability for our valued customers.

We provide engineering interns with a unique opportunity to gain experience in the range of technologies we use to effectively sustain Defence’s aerospace, maritime and land capabilities including:

  1. Design and implementation of precision manufacturing and maintenance tasks;
  2. Non-destructive testing;
  3. Corrosion protection and surface finishing;
  4. Design of traditional and Additive Material repairs including the state-of-the-art metallic repair techniques Cold Spray and Laser Additive Deposition.

Projects / tasks:

1. Design of tooling, fixtures and jigs to support the manufacture, processing & assembly of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter components. The project is part of our F-35 JSF manufacturing and maintenance program. The project involves observing the manual metallic processing of manufactured parts, and designing and implementing workflow processes and equipment which accelerate the schedule but without compromising safety or quality. The project feeds into our existing F-35 JSF manufacturing and maintenance program, and assures our ongoing competitiveness for future JSF export opportunities.

2. Design of component repairs and test fixtures to support the maintenance of the F/A-18 Hornet, MH60R Romeo, CH-47 Chinook and other Defence platforms. Rosebank Engineering is a global leader in the design and implementation of Additive Material (AM) repairs for the FA-18 Hornet. We are constantly seeking to reduce reliance on traditional repairs, and to increase our AM repair capabilities to include an additional range of components and structures. The project involves redesigning traditional repairs using AM technology. The project feeds into our existing F-18, CH-47 and MH-60R Romeo maintenance programs, and assures our ongoing competitiveness for future F-35 JSF and MH-60R Romeo maintenance export opportunities.

Technical skills:

Some CATIA or other CAD program experience is highly desirable.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

An intern that would thrive with Rosebank Engineering is an aspiring engineer with the following characteristics:

  • Enthusiastic, curious and willing to get involved;
  • Team player, but able to work autonomously on tasks;
  • Maintain a focus on safety at all times; and
  • Excited to explore Defence engineering as a possible career.

A mechanical, aerospace or materials engineering degree would be well suited to the work at our company. The ideal Engineering Intern is a person who seeks to understand new technologies and processes, and use that understanding to sustain and improve engineering, maintenance, and manufacturing performance.
