Thales Systèmes Aéroportés


For the first year of my master I had to do a six months internship. I firstly have been accepted for an interesting internship in China but due to the political context I couldn't have a visa so I finally chose to work at the Design Lab of Thales Systèmes Aéroportés, close to Bordeaux, France, as a graphic and product Designer.


The company started in 1893 with the "Compagnie Française Thomson-Houston" and after a nationalization and a priatization, it became Thales in 2000. From there, they became a global group working in five key markets: Aerospace, Space, Ground Transportation, Defence and Security. They are worldwide and/or European leader on differents markets. I was working on the Defence market at TSA (Thales Systèmes Aéroportés) on the RMS & Missions Cockpit.


I was on the Innovation Center and Design Lab and I worked on Graphic and Product projects. I also participated on Design Thinking meetings to answer, by using innnovation, to troubles or opportunities for Thales. During the second part I created a product for the new Campus Bordeaux of Thales (video of the project). This new campus will unify two buildings of the region in one surface of 57000m² and will welcome 2300 persons. This place will be ready in 2017 for an investment of 200 millions euros. It answers to a new way of working with Open Spaces and different activities divided in different areas.
