Al Seer Marine, Abu Dhabi based boat builder and manufacturer of Unmanned Surface Vessels Systems, has announced the launch of a unique Training Programme for Emirati Engineering graduates, specifically developed to foster local talent and boost its nationalization efforts in the fields of local marine and defense.
The implementation of the initiative will begin in January 2019, and will focus on the upskilling of UAE Nationals with a long-term view, particularly those wanting to pursue a career in the marine robotics industry. Robotics, networking, communications and autonomy will be cornerstones of the programme, giving the engineers the ability to augment their existing knowledge base with real world applications. Seven Emirati engineers have already been earmarked for the programme, five being women.
“In line with the UAE Vision 2021, we want to help increase Emiratization in the marine sector. Our aim at Al Seer Marine is to nurture the brightest Emirati minds with the drive, commitment and determination to succeed in the future”, said Alia Salem Al Shamisi, Network Engineer.
High on the agenda for Al Seer Marine is the continued dedication to fostering local talent and bolstering the number of Emirati engineers within the company. Emiratization remains at the forefront as Al Seer Marine expands its operations, strengthens its innovations and develops new products.
“The programme will provide intensive on-the-job training and a hands-on learning experience for Emirati Engineers to further strengthen their exposure to new marine technology innovations, techniques and knowledge, across all departments within Al Seer Marine. We are proud of our commitment to work closely with the community we operate in, and support the UAE government’s nationalization initiative” added Al Shamisi.
A homegrown brand established in Abu Dhabi, Al Seer Marine aims to be one of the premier, non-export controlled maritime solutions provider in the world. With this strategic announcement, Al Seer Marine will be able to further develop and strengthen manufacturing innovations and technically advanced solutions for all types of maritime and defense projects.
