Offering Career Workshops
EADS presented a varied programme of workshops throughout the show that covered a wide range of topics from the implementation of lean principles within Airbus and the complexity of the engineering lifecycle of fighter aircraft, to how EADS has turned to the video game industry to improve design as well as living and working in the Middle East. With EADS committed to equal opportunities, one day of workshops was devoted to gender diversity while another focused on international and cultural diversity.
