The Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology (EIAST) will offers Emirati engineering graduates job opportunities related to space industry at the Careers UAE 2014, which opened today (April 22) at Dubai World Trade Centre.
The participation complements EIAST’s efforts to attract talented Emirati job seekers and enable them to contribute to UAE’s efforts to develop advanced technological innovations.

“We look forward to recruiting a group of graduates who want to work in Khalifa Sat project, which is of particular importance as it will be the first satellite to be 100 per cent built and manufactured by UAE Nationals. It is EIAST’s third major project,” said Al Shaibani, adding that EIAST is committed boosting Emirati skills and knowledge in developing and manufacturing advanced satellites.
“We are keen on developing the competencies of UAE nationals working at EIAST.
