Engineering news: creating new skills in the electric vehicle sector.

  • Publish Date: Posted about 1 year ago

Electric vehicles are playing a key role in the clean energy revolution and providing a route to a brighter future all over the world. The world of engineering is undergoing an enormous change, and the prevalence of research and development in the EV sphere is having a significant impact on the way the sector functions.

Towards the end of 2022, the university of Warwick began a new programme called the Warwick Electrification Deployment or WELD. The project is intended to allow individuals to gain skills within the technologies behind electrical energy- an initiative which is funded by Innovate UK and involves industry workshops as well as educational outreach.

Dr Soulard from the University of Warwick’s Manufacturing Group said, “we witness the huge difficulties faced when trying to recruit people with the right skills for PEMD research and development projects.”

At Select we regularly recruit for engineering roles and are keeping up with the times by branching out into the EV sector. Our Recruitment Specialist Wes is working a range of opportunities, and we can firmly agree with Dr Soulard that candidates with the right skills are like gold dust!
