student training programme

Our Student Training Programme is a three-week work journey of professional and personal development. This annual programme takes place during the July university holidays and is specifically aimed at B.Eng. (Industrial, Mechanical and Electrical) students in their third or fourth year of study. Attendance enables students to fulfil university requirements for vacation work.

Programme participants can look forward to:

  • Identifying their strengths, in line with the Gallup model
  • Mentorship sessions with our senior management team
  • Gaining experience by working on real life projects
  • Engaging with business support functions like marketing and ICT.

Our programme helps us identify and attract the brightest young talent from leading universities.

In return, our students gain a solid grounding in the field of enterprise asset management. Participation in this programme grants students a new perspective on their careers and provides valuable life lessons while at the same time honing their knowledge around the management of physical assets. Students are introduced to a unique company where people development takes centre stage.


Our programme has won several awards, including:

  • 2015 Achiever Awards fp&m seta Skills Development Summit:

    • 1st place Best Graduate Training Programme

    • 1st place AccelorMittal Best Training Programme (Large Company)
