A technology investment unit of Mubadala, Atic created Globalfoundries in March 2009, after taking over New York's leading chip-maker the Advanced Micro Devices, which was later merged with the Singapore's state-owned Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd, making it the global industry leader.
Atic's chief executive said that the company has undergone a tremendous transformation, in the past 12-months, with a new team leading the innovation and growth.
"Since its inception in 2010, the Tech Quest programme has enjoyed strong interest from the nation's youth and educational institutions," said Hanan Harhara, head of Human Capital at ATIC.
Till date, the ATIC Tech Quest programme has engaged more than 650 UAE national students in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through exciting hands-on workshops.
Tech Quest is designed to recruit, inspire and develop the country's best national talent by working with top educators and industry professionals," stated ATIC's head of human capital development Hanan Harhara.
He was encouraged by the enthusiastic stories of his two older brothers who were student returnees at the ATIC programme.
The programme opened simultaneously last Sunday at ATIC Headquarters in Abu Dhabi and the UAE University in Al Ain.
"Tech Quest presents a dynamic and engaging environment allowing youth remarkable hands-on opportunities with true industry leaders," said ATIC Head of Human Capital Hanan Harhara.
