Bombardier to Open an Engineering Academy in Cairo

Bombardier Transportation says it will open an engineering academy in Cairo, Egypt, so that engineers can be trained to work on the Cairo monorail system as well as future mobility projects.

Bombardier announced its decision to establish an engineering academy in Cairo at the opening day of TransMEA 2020, an exhibition held in Egypt’s capital.

The intake will consist of recent engineering graduates in Egypt who would like to develop a career in rail transportation with Bombardier. At the academy students will undertake a structured series of work placements on Cairo’s monorail project. They will also receive classroom and online teaching, individual assignments and mentoring.

Following graduation, students will have access to Bombardier’s international job career path.

Ahmed Eldamanhoury, Managing Director Egypt, Bombardier Transportation, said:

“The Bombardier Transportation Engineering Academy will be an exciting post-graduate program giving talented young Engineers the benefit of practical work experience combined with the opportunity to learn from international engineering experts from a world leading mobility provider. Our young Engineers will undertake assignments in the real-life project delivery environment here in Cairo on our monorail mega-project.

“This hands-on approach will enable our trainees to hone their skills and the program presents opportunities to gain long-term employment in the rail industry with Bombardier.”

Bombardier wishes to enrol 15 engineers for its first intake in September 2021. The official recruitment launch will occur early next year.
