The scholarships are part of ENEC’s Energy Pioneers Programme, which aims to attract and train the country’s most talented science students and experienced professionals, and provide them with an opportunity to become pioneers of the emerging nuclear energy sector.
The Energy Pioneers programme is critical in building a national skill base to staff the UAE’s nuclear energy industry, which will help power the future growth of the nation. The Energy Pioneers 2012 will join more than 170 students currently sponsored under the UAE Nuclear Energy Scholarships Programme.
ENEC expects to require more than 2,000 employees by 2020, with a target of 60 per cent Emiratisation. At the end of their study, scholarship students can join the ENEC team and work towards delivering safe, clean efficient and reliable nuclear energy to the UAE.
As a young dynamic and rapidly growing industry for the UAE, nuclear energy offers a wide range of career opportunities for the UAE’s best performing students.
