Mubadala

“It’s really incredible – you don’t realize just how many types of career paths are available in a sector like renewable energy.”

That was 15-year-old Falah Al-Rashdi’s reaction as he finished his tour of Masdar City, the clean-tech cluster and free zone where Masdar is working to build the world’s most sustainable urban development.

Al-Rashdi was one of 42 students from Abu Dhabi’s Al Yasmina School visiting Masdar City as part of the Mubadala Career Tours program, an initiative that offers the next generation a glimpse of the different sectors and opportunities available in the emirate.

Through interactive sessions at companies such as Emirates Global Aluminium, Yahsat, Strata, Masdar and Healthpoint, the program aims to spark the imaginations of elementary and high school students as they begin thinking about their future vocations.

Mohammed Al Dhaheri, a 15-year-old from Al Yasmina School, was particularly inspired by his tour of Yahsat.

“I learned so much today, including the fact that Abu Dhabi has launched two satellites and is planning to launch a third in 2016. I’m going to go away and do some more research into careers in this field,” he said.
