AAWC Aeronautical Engineering Students Attend Global Aerospace Summit

4 years

A group of HCT-Al Ain Women’s College (AAWC) Aeronautical Engineering Technology students attended the Global Aerospace Summit, sponsored by Mubadala and held at Al Saadiyat Island Abu Dhabi, on April 7, 2014.

One of the many objectives of this respected international event was to inspire and engage young UAE students and professionals in the aerospace, aviation, space and defence industries; and equip them with the tools to choose and lead fulfilling careers in these sectors.

The Global Aerospace Ambassadors initiative was launched alongside the second biennial Global Aerospace Summit to address the increased need for high school graduates interested in aerospace-related careers, and for university graduates with science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related degrees.

The students had the opportunity to not only attend some of the summit’s sessions delivered by senior national and international industry delegates, but also to interact directly and discuss future plans and opportunities with major UAE employers such as STRATA, Tawazun, Yahsat and Mubadala Aerospace.
