Siemens supports the WoW programme
14 March 2011
As part of the ongoing objective to bring more employers into LJMU, the Graduate Development Centre was delighted to arrange for Siemens to visit the School of Engineering, Technology and Maritime Studies recently.
Siemens were shown the School’s excellent facilities and talked to Engineering students about the importance and application of product development at Siemens. Adam Papworth from the School of Engineering, Technology and Maritime Studies commented:
"The presentation was well received by the students who found it interesting and were given a unique insight to the workings of Siemens".
Siemens also visited the Graduate Development Centre to share their views of the WoW® skills certificate and the employability support that LJMU is providing for students. Karl Prince, Manager of the Software Team with R&D at Siemens, commented:
"The WoW® skills certificate is excellent and we can see how this, combined with integrating it in the curriculum, will give LJMU students a head start in the employment market".
Terry Dray, Director of the GDC said::
"Siemens is a major supporter of the WoW® Programme. It is important that LJMU students consider applying to international organisations such as Siemens. In order to offer a strong application students need excellent knowledge of the organisations and the context within which they operate. To this end, sessions like this are invluable. As vacancies arise, Siemens is keen to receive more applications from LJMU students and is regularly using the LJMU Vacancy system to publicise opportunities".
