Undergraduate Aerospace Software Engineer

Your role:

When you complete your engineering degree through the Defence University Sponsorship, you not only get financial support, you’ll earn a salary before you’ve even graduated. Then after you graduate, you’ll head straight into a job as an Aerospace Software Engineer in the Army. 

You’ll receive world-class military training and will hit the ground running, managing the software of some of Australia’s most advanced helicopters—including the Eurocopter Tiger, MRH90 Taipan and CH47 Chinook. It’ll be your job to keep these systems running so the aircraft can function at full capacity. 

As an Officer, you’ll be trained to lead a team of like-minded engineers and technicians to take care of the maintenance, logistics and engineering functions of these helicopters. 


This is your opportunity to be paid a competitive salary as you study for your degree at the university of your choice. Not to mention, you’ll receive other benefits like rental allowance, textbook reimbursement and assistance with your HELP fees.

While studying your salary will depend on the completion status of your course, however, on completion of your degree, initial military and employment training, you could earn $87,989 per annum plus a generous super.

Life in the Army: 

Action, adventure, exciting career opportunities and amazing mateship—there’s so much to love about life in the Army. Whether you’re looking to pick up a new skill, get qualified with fully paid training or are up for a new challenge, you’ll find it all in the Army. 

Not to mention there’s also the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes from serving your country and providing support to communities in need, both here and overseas. 

This is no ordinary job—but that’s exactly what you’re looking for. Enjoy a rewarding career, opportunities to travel, excellent fitness facilities, and free medical and dental; all in a dynamic and fulfilling work environment.
