  • Learn by experience
  • Mentoring

The GEP provides the young engineers opportunity to learn experiential learning from a mentor & mentee relationship. The graduates are young and have little or no professional experience. Consequently, they might need special support to grow into their business environment. Hence each graduate will therefore have a mentor appointed by the home country organization (for the complete duration of the program). You will be coupled with a buddy, who will understand what you are going through and give you valuable advice for your career development.
