Success Beyond the Classroom
Engineering experience and talent is a critical need at Novelis, as our engineers are at the forefront of developing and delivering new products for our customers. With that top-of-mind, Novelis created the Engineering Development Program, identifying the most qualified candidates and providing them with clear career paths to support future growth and development.
The program consists of technical, professional and leadership training conducted at Novelis’ 23 manufacturing facilities around the world over the course of four week-long sessions. The program includes classroom coursework, coaching, on-the-job projects and other development opportunities.
Upon completion of the program, Novelis works closely with each participant to provide a clear career path that aligns their interests and Novelis’ business needs across automation engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, process engineering and environmental health and safety.
This program has proven to accelerate the development of an early-career engineer as it provides them with knowledge of the end-to-end manufacturing process and an understanding of how their role aligns to it. In the six years that the Engineering Development Program has been in existence, over 350 early-career engineers have graduated.
