Vision of the Investment Program

The primary vision of our Next-Generation investment program is twofold: to cultivate a skilled workforce ready to tackle the engineering challenges of tomorrow and to ensure the company remains at the forefront of technological innovation. Approximately 400,000 new engineers are required each year in the USA, however, due to the global talent shortage in the industry it is expected that 1 in every 3 engineering roles will remain unfilled each year through to 2030. (Boston Consulting Group, 2023) Similarly, in Europe, engineering is ranked among the top five industries experiencing talent shortages, with an ageing workforce and a decline in the interest in STEM careers contributing to this shortage in the industry

At LotusWorks, we recognize the growing global talent shortage in the engineering and technical fields. In response, we are committed to future-proofing our workforce through a strategic investment in internship programs. This vision reflects a deep understanding of the symbiotic relationship between a company’s growth and the development of its people. Through this program, we aim to empower the next generation of engineers with the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to drive future advancements.   

Engineering Internship Opportunities

This program initiative is meticulously designed to serve as a bridge between the theoretical knowledge gained in academic settings and the practical challenges of professional engineering practice. By offering this unique platform, we enable ambitious students and graduates to immerse themselves in a dynamic and supportive environment where they can gain hands-on experience and contribute to meaningful projects. It’s an opportunity for interns to step into the professional world, equipped with the knowledge and skills to make a significant impact.   

Hands-on Experience with Cutting-Edge Technologies: The essence of the LotusWorks internship experience is the active participation it encourages, setting it apart from traditional, observational roles. Interns are thrust into the heart of the company’s innovation processes, where they work directly with state-of-the-art technologies. This direct involvement not only enhances their technical skills but also positions them at the cutting edge of industry advancements. Whether it’s working on renewable energy projects, contributing to the development of advanced mechanical systems, or ensuring the efficiency and reliability of electrical engineering projects, interns are given the tools and opportunities to push the boundaries of what’s possible. 

Our collaboration with a diverse range of clients across various sectors—including semiconductorpharmaceutical, data center, medical devices and construction engineering—enables us to tackle complex challenges and drive advancements in these industries. This cross-sectoral expertise ensures that our team is versatile, skilled, and equipped with the knowledge to leverage the latest technological developments for optimal client outcomes. Through these partnerships, LotusWorks is at the forefront of engineering excellence, providing solutions that not only meet but exceed our clients’ expectations.
