Continuing the momentum that saw Middle River Aircraft Systems bring nearly 300 new employees onboard during the past 18 months, the company is participating in this month’s University of Maryland’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Career Fair, taking place on November 30.

Currently employing over 800 people – both hourly and salaried – MRAS is continuing to grow as it ramps up production for its jet engine nacelle systems, with a recognized expertise in aviation composite aerostructures.

The focus of the University of Maryland Career Fair is on full-time positions and internships – with an emphasis on expertise that can be applied to MRAS’ design, development, production and support of nacelles that equip aircraft ranging from business jets to airliners.

A well-established cooperation has enabled many graduates from colleges and universities in the area, such as the University of Maryland, to find quality employment at Middle River Aircraft Systems’ 1.7-million sq. ft. facility on Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay near Baltimore.

“You will be able to grow within the company, in many different areas,” explains Kendra Suhr, the Lead Employee HR Management Specialist.

In addition to full-time employment opportunities in engineering, internships also offer opportunities at Middle River, she added. Interns who demonstrate their capabilities are routinely engaged by MRAS after graduation to continue their careers at the company.

“We offer plenty of opportunities to grow professionally,” Suhr added. “A unique aspect of MRAS for the aerospace sector is that we have the full spectrum of activities at one location, under one roof: design and engineering, sourcing, manufacturing, assembly and support – as well as finance and administration. This allows projects to be followed from their conception to delivery…and beyond.”
