Mubadala Aerospace and UAE University to launch technician training Programme for UAE nationals

posted on 20/02/2013: 2424 views

Mubadala Aerospace has signed an Dh4.9m agreement with UAE University (UAEU) to train the next generation of Emirati technicians to work at Strata's aircraft composite production facility.

The new initiative, with key modules delivered by professional trainers from Lockheed Martin, builds on the success of existing programmes, which have already resulted in the employment of over 95 Emirati staff at Strata over the past two years.

In the presence of Sheikh Nahyan Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research and Chancellor of UAEU, and Khaldoon Al Mubarak, Managing Director and CEO of Mubadala Development Company, the agreement was signed by Homaid Al Shemmari, Executive Director of Mubadala Aerospace business unit, and Dr. Ali Rashid Al Noaimi, Vice Chancellor of UAE University during the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) hosted at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

This programme will introduce an additional 90 to 100 Emirati employees to Strata by early 2015, using the high level technical skills gained to construct composite parts for the world's leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) including Airbus and Boeing.

Hosted in a state-of-the-art facility built at UAE University, equipped with the tools used in the working Strata environment, students will also receive essential training in math and sciences to ensure they are fully prepared to develop their careers in the high-tech aerospace industry.

Upon completion of the programme, Strata will offer all successful trainees full-time employment, with continued structured training and support as they progress their careers in the aerospace industry - Emirates News Agency, WAM
