The event, aimed at providing Emirati students an opportunity to explore career interests in the shipping and trade industry, was held in partnership with INJAZ UAE, a member of Junior Achievement Worldwide.

Tawfeeq Al Mubarak, Executive Vice-President, Strategy and Corporate Support, ADPC, said: “Our career development program aims to help Emirati employees to facilitate their participation in achieving the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, which envisages the development of a knowledge-based and sustainable economy. We hope several of the students who visited us today will ultimately chart excellent careers here at ADPC.”

“The engineering students have gained an understanding of the working of a world-class port. This knowledge will be of great help when they are choosing a niche field for specialization in their higher studies and careers,” added Ashraf Alkhaznadar, Executive Vice President, Projects, ADPC.

Through tie-ups with Zayed University, Abu Dhabi University and University of Sharjah, ADPC offers several opportunities to students throughout the year to learn about career-development opportunities first-hand.

“Bechtel places an emphasis on training and skills development wherever we operate,” said Steve Kay, Bechtel’s Programme Manager for Khalifa Port and Kizad.
