ABU DHABI, 11th December, 2017 (WAM) -- Emirates Global Aluminium, EGA, has announced that it is hosting eight students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT, to work on six innovative practical research projects at the company as part of their post-graduate studies.
MIT is the leading research university in the United States with a 150-year history of advancing knowledge in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship.
EGA has an ongoing partnership with MIT's David H. Koch School of Chemical Engineering Practice, a programme which provides post-graduate students an opportunity to apply their academic knowledge and expertise by suggesting 'out of the box' solutions for industrial problems.
EGA has worked with the MIT programme since 2015. The programme has a history stretching back over 100 years, with EGA being the first Middle East company to participate.
The students are working on new projects at EGA including exploring ways to improve maintenance, reduce emissions and improve productivity.
Abdalla Al Zarooni, Vice President of Technology Development and Transfer at EGA, said, "Working with MIT and other academic institutions in the UAE and internationally, brings fresh perspectives and solutions as we combine the latest academic thinking with our deep practical experience at EGA. I am looking forward to some innovative outcomes from this year's MIT projects."
