Meet Liuben, Combat Systems Engineer at SAAB Australia


Liuben has been at Saab for over 16 years and throughout this time he has worked on a range of projects from the Civil, Land and Maritime domains.


He now works as a Combat Systems Engineer on the Hunter Class Program, Liuben tells us his experience so far:


“The project has provided me a once in a lifetime opportunity being able to be involved in the design phase of such a major project. Just to be a part of the team who is involved with the design phase is quite unique because I think the Hunter class frigates will be pivotal to the defence of the nation and it’s a great feeling knowing I’m part of that solution.”


“It’s interesting seeing how quickly the design evolves and how everyone works together on one common goal. It can be a challenge, but I enjoy it and is good that we can learn from a team of highly skilled individuals. It also presents an opportunity for me to get involved with technologies that are at the cutting-edge of technical innovation,” Liubin said.


“I’d like to keep developing my technical and interpersonal skills so I can drive the projects I’m involved in through to a successful conclusion. Being actively involved in delivering a key capability is what I look forward to the most.”
