ESTEQ realized that the current skills shortage in South Africa makes it almost impossible for companies to be able to mentor young engineers since their workload simply does not allow it. Companies therefore need their young engineers to be equipped sooner to help them cope with the workload but need to ensure that they are suitably equipped for the task.
EDUTEQ wants to assist companies with precisely this:
To empower the young engineer to be able to use all the software required from his parent company in a working environment under the guidance of highly skilled technical professionals. This does not only translate into attending all the courses currently presented by ESTEQ, but also to involve the young engineer in knowledge transfer projects run by ESTEQ for our customers.
Companies who took advantage of the internship program up to date were:
- Denel SAAB Aerostructures (2008)
- AFRIT (2010)
- Babcock (2009, 2010)
- ESKOM (2009, 2010, 2011)
