Sparking an interest in STEM

Abu Dhabi’s rapidly diversifying economy is advancing the emirate’s position in a number of global sectors. A decade ago, jobs such as Aerostructure Technician and Semiconductor Process Engineer did not exist.

The challenge is ensuring that highly skilled local talent is growing apace with demand. Preparing the UAE’s workforce to seize the career opportunities available takes a long-term approach that begins with youth – and parents.

Mubadala is helping ignite a passion for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects through a range of programs that spark interest and encourage youth and their families to think about a wider spectrum of opportunities. 

By raising awareness about STEM skills and how they form the basis for meaningful careers in Abu Dhabi’s new industries, we are helping develop a skilled local workforce to support continued economic growth.
