With its determination to educate the community and to continuously expose the new generation to this exciting and progressive sector that is evolving at impressive rates, the centre also aims to enhance the UAE's position as a pioneer in this field. We need to engage highly qualified personnel in the future, who will join the current team and work on the ambitious projects the centre is planning in the field of space science and satellites.
