What is Systems Engineering?
Imagine walking into a car supermarket and realising that none of the cars available to you meets your needs. Your only option is to set a budget and have a car custom-made to your unique specifications. This is exactly what happens to many engineering companies because their customers are unable to obtain a ready-made box of technology that meets their needs.
Systems Engineering jobs require from individuals to be able to understand and model the customer’s requirements and utilise their knowledge of available technology in order to put together the solution. This solution would typically comprise of a combination of integrated components purpose-built to deliver the answer to the customers’ problem.
Due to the enormous range of industries around the world faced with complex technical problems Systems Engineers jobs apply to multi-disciplined individuals that can be qualified in a wide range of technical subjects including; mathematics, physics and engineering.
Usually, after a period of time systems engineers usually develop specialist knowledge in niche operational domains where their solutions will be deployed such as battlefields, sub-sea oil fields and outer space.
The importance of Systems Engineering
The customer will have a high expectation that the engineered solution will not only work, but will be better, faster, stronger, smaller and more cost-effective than previously available products. Systems engineering jobs are available for skilled individuals that are able to achieve and even exceed this expectation and are challenged to overcome a myriad of factors in order to deliver an optimised specification.
Systems Engineers clearly work at the very start point of any design process and so it is important that the specifications they create are accurate, achievable and deployable throughout the remainder of the design, build and delivery process.
CBSbutler’s Systems Engineers recruitment services
We have a range of systems engineering jobs across complex industries such as defence, aerospace and electronics. Within these industries we can provide specialist recruitment solutions by finding technically talented individuals and matching them to employers who everyday are attempting to solve the problems of their customers.
One of the biggest problems facing the British armed forces is the on-going threat of increasingly sophisticated road side bombs or improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Our customers are required to produce cutting edge counter-measures to this threat and come to CBSbutler to find exceptional systems engineers whose work will have an immediate impact in reducing causalities on the modern battlefield.
