Alstom India to onboard 700 young engineers

The two-month program hiring focused programme will onboard fresh hires in batches until end of August 2023


Alstom, a mobility provider, has launched its flagship programme for 2023 that aims to onboard 700 young graduate engineers over the next two months. 

The flagship Young Engineering Graduate Programme (YEGP) 2023 has been a vital part of company’s hiring strategy in India since 2015. It focuses on nurturing young engineering talent to meet the demands of both local and global business operations.

The programme will also support the diversity goals of the company. Out of the 700 graduates hired, 78 per cent will be women. To support the diversity goals, the company conducted its campus hiring across 54 universities spanning 26 states, including various Northeastern states, Gujarat, Jammu & Kashmir, and Kerala. 

The 14-day long programme will focus on providing an immersive and engaging experience to all the graduates. The primary aim of the programme is to help them understand Alstom’s business, operations, and functions, which will be facilitated through close interactions with the leadership team. 

Moreover, the candidates’ onboarded will join as graduate engineer trainees and post graduate trainees, as per the level of their qualification and will undergo a structured induction process along with technical, functional, and on-the-job training. 

Coming to the roles of new hires, the candidates will be delegated various positions depending on the necessary skills and expertise required at company’s operations. Candidates will assume positions such as application engineers, train control engineers, train design engineers, testing & commissioning engineers, and more. Furthermore, these roles will be distributed across Alstom’s six manufacturing facilities and four engineering centres, which cater to both domestic and international markets. 

Expressing his delight on the initiative, Vinod Varghese, director-HR, India said, “Alstom’s rich legacy, expertise and global footprint in the rail space, commits to putting the new hires on track to gain superior industrial and engineering knowledge over the years for a globally relevant profile.” 

Till now, the programme has helped the company onboard over 1800 engineering graduates from leading technical/engineering colleges and universities across India.
