Are you looking for an exciting IT/digital internship opportunity in an international organisation? Do you want to join one of the largest IT teams in the world?

The placement

Immersive learning environment that uses virtual reality (VR) solutions are increasingly relevant for trainings in the energy industry. With significant improvement in the mixed reality technologies and reduced cost in recent years, there is a clear opportunity to virtualise the learning curriculum with immersive expenses that could play a significantly role in reducing HSSE exposure to employees in training situations, enable better decision making on the job and bring people faster to professional autonomy. To capture these opportunities, Shell has embarked on a simulation-based learning programme to digitalise and tackle the training need of its employees.

As an intern you will be fully responsible for shaping and delivering the research projects below. You will have access to Shell’s Subject Matter Experts from different disciplines across the businesses.

  • Furthermore, you will provide your recommendation and the way forward for Shell. You will have the opportunity to develop impactful VR learnings solution for tackling a learning need in Shell and use the experience to assess the technical capabilities of the VR platforms. You will collaborate with our external suppliers and work closely with Shell’s digital realities centre of excellence (based out of Shell Technology centre in Amsterdam) to get your hands on the real development and assessment work.

Also, you will be working very closely with the simulation-based learning programme manager on a day to day basis and get exposure to wider communication, writing technical papers, publishing internal articles and participate in wide variety of day to day business activities.
