His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II attended the signing of an agreement between the Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) and Airbus. The agreement with Airbus, a globally-pioneering company in airplane manufacturing, will create more opportunities for additional training and education for Jordanian university students.
During the meeting which included officials from both entities, HRH Crown Prince Al Hussein expressed his appreciation for Airbus and its partnership which will allow for greater innovation and creativity at CPF and more developed technical education for the students involved.
According to the agreement, the training will be offered to 15 to 20 Jordanian students currently studying engineering at both the bachelors and masters levels. The agreement also stipulates that for the next three years, the training sessions – each of which spans five months – will be offered to the students at Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France. Furthermore, CPF will select the students from Jordanian universities based on criteria specified by Airbus while the final choice will be a joint decision between CPF and Airbus.
The agreement which was signed by Nour Abu Ragheb, CEO of CPF and Mikail Houari, President of Airbus for Africa and the Middle East, offers unique experiences to Jordanian youth, and reiterates CPF’s role as a platform for youth development. Through this partnership, Jordanian students will get the opportunity to benefit from their experiences by implementing their newfound knowledge in Jordan to further the local environment, a process that is greatly valued by HRH Crown Prince Al Hussein.
During the meeting, Houari noted that aviation in the Middle East is considered one of the fastest-growing fields of its kind in the world. Moreover, he expressed his hope that the agreement would greatly benefit Jordanian youth in the years to come.
