Opportunities for students

Emirates Global Aluminium assists selected students to achieve their educational goals through our scholarship programme. On completion of their studies, these students then join EGA.

EGA has sponsored more than 350 students through education since 2001. We are currently sponsoring over 150 students in their university studies, including more than 10 studying abroad.

To be considered for a scholarship, a student must be studying a subject relevant to EGA’s current and future skills needs. These disciplines are principally:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Business-related disciplines

The main institutions where we support students are United Arab Emirates University, the American University of Sharjah, the University of Sharjah, Khalifa University and the Higher Colleges of Technology.

Scholarship students can benefit from at least two periods of work experience at EGA during their long vacations, as well as academic guidance from managers in the students’ target departments.
