Through this initiative, we aim to work along with academic institutions to leverage the readiness and employability of their graduates in such a growing clean energy industry.”

This MoU represents an important milestone for ADU as we are focusing on delivering exceptional educational and hands-on experiences in fields that are relevant to engineering and renewable energy. This collaboration will certainly equip our students with the right skills and expertise to the ever-changing market needs.
