Schneider Electric Egypt has launched its 2018 summer internship program for students and recent graduates, as part of the company's ambitious CSR policy.

Schneider Electric internships this year target fresh engineering and business graduates as well as third- and fourth-year university students with an interest in the energy industry, offering passionate candidates the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and develop specialized industry skills in a variety of areas including sustainable energy, energy management and automation.

Schneider Electric has been providing its internship program for years to educate and equip career starters with world-class qualifications for their professional future.

'Schneider Electric has always sought to contribute to educating the best and the brightest young Egyptian talents to become the energy-efficiency leaders of tomorrow and to prepare them for the job market,' said Walid Sheta, Schneider Electric's Regional Cluster Head of North East Africa and Levant.

'As Egypt is taking major steps to revive its economy through the construction of major development and engineering projects, there is a growing need for high caliber personnel who know how to use advanced technology,' Sheta added.

Schneider Electric internships are running for one month, subjected to extension for a second month if needed. Interns are being assigned to various business areas based on business requirements and each applicant’s interests.

Over the past years, Schneider Electric has organized a series of training programs in cooperation with top Egyptian universities, education institutions and labor unions with the aim of grooming a new generation of skilled operators as well as enhancing vocational education and technical skills in the Egyptian market.

The company has partnered with leading engineering colleges including Ain Shams University and Cairo University to provide energy management and automation training for electricity students. It has also offered training programs on smart city technology to young engineers at labs set up by Schneider Electric at the Egyptian Syndicate of Engineers.

It has also worked together with leading local organizations to train their staff on the latest information technology applications and solutions.

'We believe that professional training of specialized engineers helps improve performance across all engineering sectors,' Sheta further added.
