Penspen is demonstrating its continuing commitment to the United Arab Emirates with a tailored scheme to develop the next generation of engineers. Penspen’s proven expertise in delivering asset solutions at every project stage is providing energy companies with the technical knowledge to meet multiple challenges across the globe, and it is ensuring these skills are passed on to future generations with its Emirati Graduate Programme. The scheme is specifically designed for graduates in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is delivered in partnership with Khalifa University, with the aim to help future engineers develop the technical competency and real-world experience required to succeed in their fields.
Since launching in 2020, 30 people have successfully completed the Emirati Graduate Programme, with more than 20 securing full-time positions with a major NOC and other locally based energy sector companies, and one employed as a graduate engineer in the Penspen Engineering team in Abu Dhabi.
Penspen recently announced it had been awarded nearly 30 global contracts in the second quarter of 2022, which followed positive operational momentum from the start of this year.
