The Future Scientists initiative, a joint venture between Al Bayt Mitwahid Association in collaboration with Airbus, provided students with a world-class, interactive  learning experience for bright, young talented students based in the UAE.

Throughout the past three-years, students have attended workshops, industrial sites tours, lectures and events  in France, Germany and the UAE. This year’s edition of Future Scientists saw the students partake in aviation and aerospace learning experiences at multiple organisations such as the  UAE Space Agency, the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre, Strata Manufacturing,  Etihad Engineering and  Innovation Hub Powered by Google. The objective of the initiative has been to give insights to the opportunities available within the industry in the United Arab Emirates.

Abdullah Al Neyadi, Board Member of Al Bayt Mitwahid Association shared his thoughts by saying: “The encouragement  of STEM education through live learning experiences is something we highly value at Al Bayt Mitwahid. We’re immensely proud to see our talented Emirati students develop their aviation and aerospace knowledge under such an initiative.

The aviation and aerospace industry in the UAE continues to exponentially grow and make ground breaking movements.  By exposing our brightest young minds to world renowned organisations in this sector we aim to help shape the future of the UAE by inspiring students to pursue higher academic education and potential career paths.”

He continued by stating: “At Al Bayt Mitwahid we continuously strive to partner with organisations like Airbus,  who positively contribute to the UAE’s aviation and aerospace vision. I’d also like to extend our gratitude to our supporting partners, UAE Space Agency, Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre, Etihad Engineering, Strata Manufacturing and the Innovation Hub Powered  by Google, who gave our students firsthand industry insights that will help them prosper in their future endeavors.”

Mohammed Al Ameri, one of the Future Scientists students, expressed his thoughts on the initiative by saying:  “I’m proud to have been a Future Scientists student for the past three years. In this time Al Bayt Mitwahid and Airbus have helped all of the students gain access to some amazing sites, such as Etihad Engineering’s MRO and Airbus’ facilities in France and  Germany.”
