Siemens has launched the 8th edition of Siemens Scholarship Programme. Based on the German model of Dual Education, the programme hones youth to become industry-ready engineers, and launch a sustainable career in engineering, R&D or manufacturing.
Under this programme, Siemens provides financial assistance to deserving meritorious students. Additionally, internships, mechatronics, soft skills trainings, projects and mentorships provided by Siemens will also acquaint these bright minds with the dynamics of the industry, thereby leading to their holistic development.
