Meet the interns
WME invited a mechanical engineering graduate to join our graduate scheme for a month — you can find how how Olek Zyborski got on in the article below. We also provided a two-month summer internship for marketing student Mariyam Al Amiri from Zayed University in the UAE.
Two school students from Dubai College worked with us for a week, each exploring the work of our various engineering departments as work experience. WME is a strong supporter of providing the potential next generation of engineers with opportunities to explore the possibilities.
Olek joined us over the summer for a one-month internship as part of our graduate scheme. He is training as a mechanical engineer at the University of Dundee in Scotland but had little exposure to the design of building services before he came to WME. Learning the terminology was the first challenge!
The main focus of Olek’s work with us was mechanical design and site supervision but, as he says, he had the chance to see projects at all stages. He contributed to the selection of equipment and calculations, plus attended project meetings. Would he join the company if the chance came along? “Most definitely”, he says.
