Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO) recently welcomed a group of young students from Qatar Independent Technical School (QITS) to participate in the company’s Summer Internship program. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, QAPCO has built strong partnerships with the educational sector in Qatar over the last few years and prides itself on being fully committed to supporting the youth of Qatar.

Mr. Nasser Abdulla Al Mohammedi, A/Human Resource & Learning Manager described the QAPCO Summer Internship as “a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about the world of work and in particular about Qatar’s Oil & Gas Industry”. He continued “An internship offers the chance to gain real work experience that you just can’t get in the classroom. Plus it will enhance networking skills as these programs are a great way of meeting new people that could eventually become your work colleagues. I am very happy that as part of our MoU with QITS that we able to accept these young students and I hope that they will return to QAPCO in the future to join our excellent Scholarship program.”

Mr. Abdulla Shams, Principle of QITS, thanked Mr. Al Mohammedi for inviting his students to visit QAPCO and stated “I believe that Internship programs are a vital component in a student’s development as they provide a transition into the workplace and will enable the boys to obtain more information about the Oil & Gas Industry. It also gives them an opportunity to apply the knowledge and theory that they have learnt in the classroom and I am sure that this program will give them more confidence to complete their studies with us and join the Industry in the next few years.
