Moreover, Noor Abu Dhabi will arrange site visits for the university students as well as conduct seminars, conferences, training programs, and lectures, both inside and outside the plant.

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. I strongly believe this is only the beginning to a prosperous collaboration that will mutually benefit both ADU and Noor Abu Dhabi Station that will contribute to the development and the growth of our communities”.
