Unlocking the Future: ExxonMobil's Journey to Inspire Engineers in Singapore.
ExxonMobil, like many industrial giants, faces the challenge of attracting and retaining top engineering talent in a competitive job market. Moreover, there is a growing need to address the industry's labor gap, which is expected to widen further as the older generation of engineers retires. Inspiring young students to consider careers in engineering is crucial to mitigating these challenges.
In collaboration with ExxonMobil and other key partners, we devised an innovative approach to address these challenges. We leveraged cutting-edge technology to create a series of immersive experiences, including 360-degree videos. The experiences offered an unprecedented opportunity for students to virtually explore ExxonMobil's petrochemical complex and witness the daily tasks and responsibilities of engineers.
360 Videos: We produced high-quality 360-degree videos that allowed students to take virtual tours of ExxonMobil's industrial facilities, providing an in-depth look at the various engineering processes and technologies in action. Students could immerse themselves in the role of an engineer at ExxonMobil, solving real-world problems and making critical decisions.
The partnership between ExxonMobil, EDB, and our team, along with other key collaborators, has made a significant impact in promoting engineering careers to students in Singapore. By harnessing the power of immersive technology, we were able to overcome the challenges faced by ExxonMobil and the industry at large. The success of this endeavor highlights the potential for innovative approaches to inspire the next generation of engineers and address the talent gap in the field. We are committed to continuing our efforts to inspire, educate, and cultivate the future leaders of the engineering industry.
