Communication and Electronics Engineer Officers deal with the RAF’s cutting edge; its communication links. As an Engineer Officer (Communications Electronics) you could find yourself supervising the maintenance of ground radar systems, or looking after the complex ground-based communications networks of the UK’s Air Defence system.
You’ll also have a vital role to play in networking all of the RAF’s information systems to ensure up-to-the minute information is always available to our decision-makers. You will gain many personal development opportunities and career prospects, together with the chance to work around the world, gaining unique engineering experiences in the process.
As well as RAF training packages and courses linked to outside professional bodies, we actively support individuals study programmes at every level. You could have opportunities to take Masters’ degree courses, either full-time or part –time. As your career progresses, you will also be encouraged to join one of the Professional Engineering Institutions to attain Incorporated Engineer or Chartered Engineer professional status to allow you to take on some of the more challenging roles.
