Rolls-Royce Power Systems helps 100 engineers gain electrical engineering qualification

Apr 09, 2019

  • Eye on electrification:  technical training initiative begins in April
  • HECTOR School of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology chosen as partner

Rolls-Royce Power Systems is planning to respond more robustly to the rising demand for electrified drive and propulsion systems. So this year and the next, it will be helping some one hundred engineers at the company to acquire an electrical engineering qualification. The company, as it evolves into a system solutions provider, is innovating its product portfolio to respond to the needs of the energy and mobility turnaround. The changes go hand-in-hand with new job profiles, and, in particular, new demands on the qualifications of staff working in R&D. “We want to train the qualified professionals we need in electrical engineering ourselves. By helping staff to gain higher qualifications, we're also offering them exciting career prospects in an innovative field,” pointed out Marcus A. Wassenberg, member of the Executive Board at Rolls-Royce Power Systems who carries the HR portfolio.

The company has chosen the HECTOR School of Engineering and Management as its partner for the further training initiative. The school belongs to the renowned Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, a leading engineering and natural science university in the federal state of  Baden-Württemberg. “Providing further training opportunities for staff is a wise step to take at a time when skilled labor is in very short supply, and also fits the strategic re-orientation of the company. This is why the Works Council wholly supports this measure,” emphasized Works Council Chairman Thomas Bittelmeyer.

Starting in April, the first 25 engineers will follow two training modules involving up to 250 hours of training that lead to a basic qualification. In the second phase, they will have the option of studying further in order to specialize in a particular branch of electrical engineering. Completion of the third phase will lead to an academic title.
