Lockheed Martin, the UAE Space Agency and Mubadala have launched a space-based workforce training programme to develop emerging leaders in the UAE space industry.


Generation Space: The Space Fundamentals Training Programme for early career professionals across the UAE aerospace industry will run for the next four months and includes training in the UAE and the United States. The programme begins in the UAE with training in “space foundations” and moves into more technical topics, covering more than 200 hours of course work. Participants will also complete mentor-guided research projects. 

Dr Khalifa Al Romaithi, chairman of the UAE Space Agency, said: “This latest initiative represents and realises the long-term strategic vision of the UAE Space Agency, which seeks to bring together Emirati stakeholders as well as maximising international cooperation in the space sector. Furthermore, we are committed to instilling a sound scientific understanding among up-and-coming Emiratis as part of our efforts to develop a knowledge-based economy.” 

Homaid Al Shimmari, chief executive officer of Aerospace & Engineering Services at Mubadala said: “Mubadala is proud to be a part of Generation Space, which will provide the UAE’s next generation with hands-on experience across the UAE and US space industries. The future strength of the UAE’s aerospace industry depends on the development and innovation of the young professionals who will lead our country into space for the benefit of the people of the Emirates.”
