EDM launches Internship Programme for undergraduates

Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it has launched an Internship Programme for undergraduates.

The Programme is open to university students currently studying for an engineering or science related degree at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) who wish to gain real job experience in a modern manufacturing environment. During their 12-month work placement each intern will be assigned a mentor to support and guide them as they embed themselves in EDM’s culture and manufacturing processes.

Following an initial induction period, interns will learn about the company’s product range, and whilst embedded in the design department, will gain an appreciation of other departments such as purchasing, planning, quality and assembly and spend time understanding core manufacturing processes including cutting, turning, milling and fabrication. After a stringent selection process, the first two interns began their placements at EDM in July.

“Developing the next generation of engineers is vital to the success of the UK’s manufacturing sector,” said Tony Bermingham, Managing Director of EDM. “Our new Internship Programme will give talented and motivated young undergraduate engineers a fantastic start to their careers and we’re delighted to welcome the first two to EDM this month.”
