With the exception of our college which is kind of out of our control despite many attempts to help improve the place the scheme is very well structured.

You need to prove your interest in the subject you're studying, Siemens has plenty of opportunity to train you but they have to see their spark in your eye, that keenness for the subject matter and willingness to learn.
