Graduate Electrical Engineer

"...you get to see and work in a number of different business areas..."

Siemens has a strong Graduate Programme which allows you to experience various aspects of the business.

My degree’s in Electronic and Electrical Engineering with Maths. I joined Siemens in 2012 as a Graduate Electrical Engineer working on a rotational programme. My initial placement was based in Regional Projects designing DCS systems using the Siemens software PCS7 and now, I’m working with Business Excellence which is focused on improving business process. For me, this is what’s great about the Siemens graduate programme: you get to see and work in a number of different business areas, both technical and commercial, so you understand how each area works and how together they make Siemens the success that it is. It helps you to appreciate the breadth and depth of the expertise here – and the many different directions that you’re able to take your career in.

What’s next for me? After the graduate scheme, my plans are to find a technical role within the business. I’m keen to stay with Siemens and keep learning and keep developing my career.
