Posted 21 November 2019 · Add Comment

Mubadala Investment Company, the Abu Dhabi-based sovereign investor, has renewed its partnership with Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company, to continue the highly successful joint-internship programme.

 

The programme was established in 2015 to grow the capabilities and skills of UAE’s future workforce and position them for a successful career in aviation and aerospace. The internship is an experiential learning opportunity at Boeing facilities in the United States that exposes a select group of undergraduate engineering students from the UAE to exciting career options in the world of aerospace engineering. Throughout the 18-week programme, the students participate in professional development activities, build their network and broaden their exposure to Boeing and aerospace engineering. The students will be introduced to Fabrication, Manufacturing Engineering, Liaison Engineering, and Industrial Engineering modules during the programme.

Badr Al-Olama, head of Mubadala Aerospace, said: “Boeing is a long-term strategic partner and we are proud to collaborate with them once again on this important programme. In order to continue the development of the UAE’s aerospace industry, it is essential we invest in our most valuable asset – our youth– to build the future generation of aerospace professionals who will continue building the sector in the UAE.”

“We are pleased to be working with Mubadala again on this successful program. The Boeing-Mubadala Co-Op internship programme provides valuable aerospace engineering expertise, bolstering the UAE’s aeronautical capabilities. The students that graduated from this programme have shown great initiative, knowledge and skills and we look forward to welcoming the next cohort” said Bernard Dunn, president of Boeing Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.
