IDEX: Mubadala Aerospace and UAE Uni to launch technician training programme for UAE nationals

Posted 18 February 2013 · 1 Comment

Mubadala Aerospace has signed an AED 4.9 million 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 programs, which have already resulted in the employment of over 95 Emirati staff at Strata over the past two years.

H.H. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, minister of higher education and Scientific Research and Chancellor of UAEU said: “As part of the UAE’s commitment to growth and diversification, UAE University is putting in place strong partnerships with local and international companies and institutions, to ensure that we best prepare our students to contribute to the nation’s ongoing success.” 

“By working with these esteemed partners, the university, which occupies a leading position among world universities in terms of its education and research capabilities, can provide high quality training programs across key industry sectors that meet the needs of infrastructure services, and the economic and social development in the UAE.   Our training program with Mubadala Aerospace is a perfect addition to our existing courses.” 

Homaid Al Shemmari, executive director of Mubadala Aerospace and chairman of Strata, said: “Mubadala Aerospace is proud to support the growth of UAE nationals through this new facility and program, allowing talented young students to fulfill their potential by becoming an integral part of the UAE’s growing global aerospace industry.  Aligning with UAE University and Lockheed Martin will ensure our students receive international standards of education and training, and most importantly are equipped with the skills to allow Strata to continue to deliver to the highest standards for its partners and customers across the globe.”
