Commencing on November 2nd, the graduates from Arup, one of the world’s leading engineering and design companies, spent two weeks attending workshops, seminars, factory tours, lectures and simulations at the Daikin factory in Ostend and offices in Brussels.
“The climate control industry is extremely dynamic, rapidly changing due to technological and legislative evolution. These innovations drive product development and new and improved methods of delivering evermore effective and efficient climate control solutions,” said Karen Perry, National Specification Manager at Daikin UK.
“At Daikin, we have a passion for HVAC and Refrigeration, and want to use it to help shape the future of our industry – investing in the brightest young graduates to give them a competitive edge and a kickstart to their career.
“Consequently, the Arup graduate training scheme as well as Daikin’s in-house apprenticeships and UK Graduate training days are vital mechanisms to share expertise and insight. Educating new and future engineers on upcoming trends and legislation that will impact on the sector and their career - such as next generation refrigerants like R32 and the future of VRV, is of paramount importance to the continued success of the sector.”
This opportunity, a first for Daikin UK and Arup combined, will continue to grow and develop with future dates in planning already.
