ArcelorMittal Engineering Bursary Programmes In 2020 for Those who Already Obtained Their Grade 12 Certificate
In South Africa, ArcelorMittal is known as a company with immense technical and managerial expertises since its first establishment on 1928. Recently, this Vanderbijlpark-headquartered company has been African’s largest steel producer with an approximately 4.8 million tonnes of ready-for-sale steel products. On top of all, ArcelorMittal supplies more than 61% of South African-used steel and exports the rest to the sub-Saharan region and worldwide as well.
ArcelorMittal’s business successes don’t only stop in its steel producing. Rather, it also has an on-going international best practice that guides its entire business activities, including additional empowering activities, such as the bursary programme as discussed in this article.
ArcelorMittal’s Bursary Programme’s Schemes and Overviews on Its Requirements
ArcelorMittal awards bursaries to full-time students who have previously completed their Grade 12 result with an overall result that is equal or higher than their university’s requirements. These scholars should also attend ArcelorMittal’s university partners and study in one of these following study fields:
- Mechanical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Metallurgical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Information Technology
In other words, ArcelorMittal’s bursary schemes are only available for the engineering and technician stream as noted in its Engineering Bursaries’ main page and Technician Bursaries’ main page. ArcelorMittal’s engineering and technician bursary recipients will receive aids in these following academic- and non-academic-based components:
- Academic-based: Full or partial tuition fees depending on each university’s cost, book allowances, a scientific calculator, and a personal computer for each recipient.
- Non-academic-based: Accommodation costs including the meal costs and mentor supports from the ETA Young Professional Forum to share and promote engineering study fields in different disciplines.
For the sake of each bursary recipient’s personal and professional development, ArcelorMittal will visit their recipients twice a year in each of the university for these following purposes:
- Evaluate and discuss each bursary recipient’s academic progress and follow up with the university’s semester results for each student.
- Decide upon the bursary’s continuities for the concurring semester or year (whether it should be reinstated, canceled, or suspended, depending on each bursary recipient’s performance).
- Examine each bursary recipient’s well-being in general.
- Invite second- and third-year bursary students to undertake 6-months vacation work training at the end of the year.
Candidate Engineer programme is available for bursary recipients who have graduated, in which they can be appointed as full-time professional engineers. These recipients will also be required to take an additional 24-month training programme to enhance their work experiences as well as theoretical grounding.
Other than having a Grade 12 certificate, applicants wishing to undertake ArcelorMittal’s bursary programme scheme should be possessing a minimum 70% average of Grade 11’s Mathematics and Physical Sciences subjects and a minimum 60% average of Grade 12’s entire subjects. Applicants should also keep in mind that these requirements are subject to each university’s criteria.
