by Madaline Dunn

Al Masaood Power Division, part of Al Masaood Group, has announced the completion of the first year of its Mechatronics Apprenticeship Program inaugural batch. 

The division shared that the initiative is geared towards nurturing the future generation of Emirati engineers, advocating for gender equality, and contributing to the diversification and development of the UAE’s talent pool in the power industry.

The first batch of Emirati engineering graduates underwent a two-year curriculum combining theoretical knowledge with hands-on, practical experience in mechanical and electronic engineering disciplines. 

Following the completion of year one for the initial batch, Al Masaood Power Division also welcomed a new group of apprentices. 

Rasso Bartenschlager, General Manager of Al Masaood Power Division, commented: “This ongoing introduction of fresh talent is crucial for fostering growth and innovation in the mechatronics field, not just within the UAE but also on a global scale. It’s been a true pleasure to witness the talent, capabilities, and hard work of the young Emirati apprentices. It’s definitely a testament to the potential they possess and their readiness to address future challenges facing the power industry. I look forward to seeing the contributions of all of these young professionals will bring to Al Masaood, the power sector, and the nation.”

The division shared that the Al Masaood Mechatronics Apprenticeship Program includes more than 100 hours of practical, on-the-job training, sees apprentices work with cutting-edge facilities in Abu Dhabi and offers a syllabus “validated by global giants.”

“At Al Masaood, we believe in nurturing the UAE’s economic vitality and elevating our local talent. With the first group of apprentices completing their initial year and a fresh batch stepping in, our pledge to Emiratisation and equal opportunities is more pronounced than ever. It’s our privilege to guide and mold Emirati nationals, setting them on a path to become pioneers in their fields,” said Bothaina Al Ali, Group HR Manager of Al Masaood.
