Mubadala and Khalifa University to host space and science career boot camp

Emirati high-school pupils will be able to get first-hand knowledge of job opportunities in space, robotics, health sciences, computer science, energy, and cybersecurity at a boot camp organized by Mubadala Investment Company and Khalifa University of Science and Technology this month .

The two organizations announced on Wednesday that they would jointly host a five-day career boot camp aimed at pupils in grades 10 to 12, to help them learn more about STEM careers and jobs in emerging technology.

The camp will be organized at Khalifa University’s main campus and at its Sas Al Nakhl campus from August 15 to 19.

Artificial intelligence has been tipped to be the UAE’s most important industry over the next 10 years, with universities urged to step up efforts to prepare the next generation of high-tech workers.

The fast-rising sector was ranked ahead of construction, electronics, aerospace, robotics, design engineering and IT, and cybersecurity, in a poll of technology and engineering employees in the Emirates.

The UAE government is driving forwards with ambitious plans to establish itself as a global AI hub.

The event is part of Mubadala’s Emiratisation program.
