  • Guaranteed job placement at AVEVA upon meeting relevant criteria

The on-site program is scheduled to officially commence in June 2024, running for six weeks.

The program will also focus on developing interpersonal skills through Action for Good activities (Action for Good (aveva.com), presentation skills, etiquette guidance, and social activities.

Scholars who meet relevant criteria can expect a full-time role waiting for them at AVEVA after graduation. By investing in young scholars, AVEVA aims to future-proof its talent pipeline and ultimately increase the pool of diverse talent.

The AVEVA Scholars Program was championed by AVEVA’s BLACK Voices Employee Group, a group that aims to increase Black representation within the company, amplify career opportunities in the technology industry for diverse groups and encourage the development of future leaders. The program aligns with AVEVA’s five Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion focus areas: gender, race and ethnicity, religion, faith or belief, disability, and sexual orientation. Each focus area has an active employee group working to develop greater understanding and inclusion across the business. 

“The AVEVA Scholars Program is not just about education; it’s about creating opportunities and forging a path for talented individuals to join AVEVA, driving innovation and making a meaningful impact on our industry and beyond,” said Caspar Herzberg, CEO of AVEVA. “By involving and listening to our employee groups, we can understand the challenges we need to address, take action and develop inclusive programs that will make a difference.” 

“The AVEVA Scholars will be afforded the opportunity to learn from engineers and computer scientists at a leading industrial software company, showcase their talents, and develop mentoring relationships that enable them to thrive and become leaders in the technology sector,” said John M.M. Anderson, dean of the Howard University College of Engineering and Architecture. “We look forward to working with AVEVA to further our academic enterprise and student learning experience at the College of Engineering and Architecture, and to sustain our efforts to educate students from underserved communities.”
