The EGA Aluminum Design and Innovation Design Challenge is part of EGA’s Engineers of the Future programme, which introduces students in the UAE to practical applications in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics industries.

During the four-week course, the students are mentored by young EGA engineers. Students also received the resources and tools they needed to complete their projects.

In addition, EGA hosts the annual Industrial Robotics Competition, which aims to provide university engineering students with real-world experience in robotics, automation and big data. Last year, the EGA program sparked interest in science, technology, engineering and math among young people, reaching more than 6,000 students. — trade arab news agency
