A taste of Dubai’s Oilfields

As part of Dubai Petroleum Establishment’s social responsibility, we strive to give back to the local community. We do this through our Internship Program:

Dubai Petroleum Establishment’s Internship Program – University students are given the opportunity to be involved in an exciting project and, at the same time, get real experience of what full-time work is like.

Our Internship Program is a crash course in what it’s like to be a Dubai Petroleum Establishment employee. Interns receive 2-4 months project-based work experience with us, culminating in a presentation of what they’ve learnt and discovered from their particular project topic. For us, it provides an opportunity to see potential recruits in action, to fully assess them against real tasks and targets, and to monitor their performance.

The program’s Objectives aims to:

  • Give interns a realistic view of the work environment
  • Transfer basic project management and time management skills
  • Stay in contact with students who are likely candidates for employment at Dubai Petroleum Establishment once they have graduated
  • Establish strong, lasting relationships with higher education institutions.

The Internship program is offered for UAE Nationals who are enrolled in a college or university at undergraduate or postgraduate level, having completed a minimum of two academic years and who have a GPA of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent.

You can apply for internship in Dubai Petroleum Establishment through the career office in your respective college or university.
