Alstom hosts training session for Ajman students

UAE, July 9, 2019

Alstom, a multinational company operating worldwide on rail transport markets, recently held a training session for the students of Ajman University (AU) to upgrade them on the latest railway systems.

The training followed an agreement signed by the university and Alstom in February to help develop students’ awareness about all aspects of railway industry, said a statement from the company.

Alstom is well established in the UAE with several key urban projects including Dubai Tram, the first tramway in the GCC, and other key projects in the region. It is also active in passenger transportation, signalling, and systems and services.

A total of 15 students went through the intensive two-week training which introduced them to railway transportation systems, operations, maintenance, safety awareness, maintenance management, and quality management, it added.

AU chancellor Dr Karim Seghir said the university spared no effort to develop students’ awareness in all walks of life, particularly about timely issues as was the case with railway industry.

"Such proactive and farsighted style of hands-on approach to education and training is in line with the directives of HH Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ajman and chairman of AU Board of Trustees," remarked Seghir.

“AU has inked tens of partnership agreements to help students master all the life and hands-on skills they need pre and post-graduation,” he added.

Thi-Mai Tran, managing director of Alstom GCC, said that it is very exciting to engage with such bright local talents.

"We see the importance of encouraging, nurturing and developing talents, who will be leading the UAE’s railway industry in the future," observed Tran.

"This training, spanning theoretical education, group exercises, site visits, videos and exams, will lead to several internships at Alstom Dubai, co-supervised by AU professors and Alstom experts," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
