Location: Midrand

Description: Siemens is inviting BSc /BEng Computer Science/IT Engineering graduates to apply for their IT Graduate 2021.

Are you a recent IT Graduate with a passion for all things technical. Are you driven by solving technical problems and fascinated with rolling out cutting edge solutions? If so then this could be the opportunity for you.  

The best way for the mining companies to confront the major challenges such as declining ore grades, safety concerns and volatile commodity prices is to improve operational excellence and embrace technological advances and innovations. Cutting-edge solutions are the way forward and that means to define sustainable enterprise digital architecture, select appropriate technologies, and ensure seamless integration.

Although individual systems are expected to generate gains by themselves, only a proper integration of those technologies can unleash the full potential of digital transformation. Based on this principle, Siemens has developed a holistic architecture concept to support mining customers to implement digital solutions, with a strong focus on eliminating data silos and increasing collaboration across different departments such as engineering, operations, planning and maintenance.
