December 5, 2019 Alstom, a multinational company that develops and markets systems, equipment and services for the transport sector, has recruited two of Ajman University (AU) students after successfully completing a special railway system training in Dubai.

This recruitment followed an agreement signed by Alstom and Ajman University in February 2019 to provide technical training for AU students and develop their expertise in the railway industry. 

This training, which included theoretical education, group exercises, site visits, videos and exams, led to offering a couple of job opportunities to AU students to become part of Alstom team in Dubai.

AU Chancellor Dr. Karim Seghir said Ajman University spares no effort to develop students’ awareness in all walks of life, particularly timely issues as is the case with the railway industry.

“Such proactive, farsighted and hands-on approach of education and training is in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ajman and Chairman of AU Board of Trustees.”

“Alstom is extremely proud of the partnership with Ajman University. We have seen the great results of this collaboration with the arrival of the newly recruited students who are now part of our team in Dubai. This demonstrates our commitment to empower local talents and to work with universities nationwide to prepare students to become leading experts in the railway industry”, said Vincent Prou, Managing Director of Alstom Middle East.

Alstom is well established in the UAE with several key urban projects, including Dubai Tram, the first tramway in the GCC, and Metro Route 2020. It is also active in passenger transportation, signalling, systems and services.
