Although I am not a graduate, I am in the 3rd year of my Masters degree in Physics. This year I am taking as a placement year, and I am working at Advanced Technology Centre - Sowerby which is on BAE Systems (formerly British Aerospace) Filton Site. I have also been to the Warton Military Aircraft site on business. BAE Systems is now a huge international company, employing more the 100,000 people. A fantastic job to have on your CV, very few people wont have heard of it. Particularly because the company is so big, there are jobs for people with all skills, and there are graduate training schemes. Although this only applies to the part of the company I work for, since it is a reseach centre, they only take on people with a masters or a PhD as their scientists. I can't say anything about the others as I don't know. The company has so many students working for it, and a lot of new graduates, that they must be doing something right. This is a fantastic company to work for and the experience will be looked on very favourably by future employers.
