Posted 19 March 2018 · Add Comment

Seven students from Emirates Aviation University will take part in the Boeing Mentorship Programme, developed by Boeing Middle East.

The UAE-based programme focuses on providing students with academic and career guidance, enhancing their leadership skills and exposure to the private sector within the aviation industry.

The collaboration was announced at Boeing offices in the Dubai Airport Free Zone, during which students were given an orientation about the programme and what they could expect from their mentors.

“Our main focus at Emirates Aviation University (EAU) is our students. We are always keen on providing them with the best tools to develop their skills and capabilities. We believe that education is greatly enhanced by experience and exposure to different, real-life perspectives, and we are always ready to support them in any aspect. We would like to thank Boeing Middle East for this opportunity and we hope that our students will benefit from it as much as possible,” said Dr Ahmad Al Ali, Vice Chancellor of Emirates Aviation University.

 “Mentoring students is one of the most impactful and meaningful ways to engage the community. The program gives students access to industry experts and provides them with the opportunity to ask questions, develop their skills, and experience the private sector in a safe environment. We look forward to a successful program and partnership with EAU” said Bernard Dunn, president of Boeing Middle East, North Africa and Turkey. 

“Students nowadays are looking for new ways to learn about careers in the business world, although faculty members are still our primary mentors. We are eager to learn what skills and tools are needed to be successful and competitive in the marketplace. Another valuable opportunity our university provides is the alumni mentoring programmes,” said Lina Ali Murad Al Mandoos AlBlooshi, Aviation Management student at EAU.

“We are excited to be able to share innovative concepts with influential and experienced professionals, and we look forward to receiving their feedback and learning from them,” said Amer Ghadban, Aviation Management student at EAU.
