Bermudians to learn from Aecon

Two government recruits will further their engineering skills through an international internship programme.

The Ministry of Public Works announced that Jamal Dill and Zeeko Johnstone have been welcomed into the Bermuda-Aecon Internship Programme.

The pair will travel to Toronto, Canada, to gain experience and learn professional skills while working with renowned engineering companies.

Mr Johnstone, a mechanical engineer graduate, will study under the mechanical design company H.H. Angus Associates Ltd.

Mr Dill will work with the Toronto-based electrical engineering company Mulvey & Banani International.

Frank Ross, the executive director of Aecon International Construction, said: “We are very pleased to welcome both Zeeko and Jamar to the intern programme and I am confident that they will thoroughly enjoy and greatly benefit from this opportunity that the Government of Bermuda has presented to them.”

Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch congratulated the pair for their accomplishments.

He added: “Today is a day for other young Bermudians who may have an interest in the engineering field to be inspired by these two young men to also pursue their dreams.

Mr Burch ended by urging everyone interested in an engineering career to contact the ministry.
