Mubadala Aerospace trains UAE Nationals at STRATA
Mubadala Aerospace, a business unit of the Mubadala Development Company, has partnered with the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) to provide UAE Nationals with specialist training programmes to develop them for a career in Abu Dhabi’s growing aerospace industry.
The first batch of students have now commenced their training at the Al-Ain International Aviation Academy (AAIAA).
The training programmes, which cover both technical and vocational fields for men and women, have been designed for Mubadala Aerospace’s STRATA facility; a state-of-the-art composites facility which will produce composite aerostructure components for existing aircraft such as the Airbus A380 and the next generation of aircrafts. The courses will provide professional training for UAE Nationals to prepare them for careers as aircraft engineers, technicians and other specialist roles. Trainees and their parents were invited to attend a one day seminar held at the AAIAA on April 15 to familiarise them with the career opportunities at STRATA.
“Through our partnership with IAT, we are committed to developing a highly skilled UAE National workforce that will lead the growth of a world class aerospace industry here in Abu Dhabi. It is one of the most exciting career opportunities in the UAE and we encourage all UAE Nationals to consider a future in this field,” said Mubadala Aerospace executive director Homaid Al Shemmari.
