About the programme

This is part of our talent pipeline engagement, to ensure we have motivated engineers joining us during each stage of our local/regional expansion.

This is a 6-month traineeship with the company, meant for fresh graduates from the polytechnics and universities. During the traineeship, you will be introduced to the world of industrial automation and rotated through various departments for a broad understanding of what we do.
