Marillyn Hewson, chairman, president and CEO of global technology provider Lockheed Martin, took time out during a recent visit to the UAE to congratulate Emirati students who participated in a knowledge-sharing training programme at the company's Centre for Innovation and Security Solutions in Masdar City.

The centre, which celebrated its first full year of operations this month, serves as a model for international government, industry, and academic collaboration to provide Emirati students with world-class training and skill development. 

Speaking about the training course, Azza Salem Al Bakr, a student participant from Masdar Institute said” “The course helped me develop the modelling and simulation skills needed to analyse aerospace missions and visualise dynamic datasets. I have always been an aviation enthusiast and receiving the opportunity to train on a flight simulator at Lockheed Martin was a dream come true.”
