Raytheon has been collaborating with the Higher Colleges of Technology in the United Arab Emirates for several years. The company worked with Johns Hopkins University to establish an Engineering Master’s degree program at the Higher Colleges of Technology in Abu Dhabi. Raytheon has sent leaders to speak at HCT’s annual and bi-annual events such as “Education Without Borders” and the “Festival of Thinkers,” as well as more intimate settings at the Abu Dhabi Women’s College.
Raytheon partnered with the Centre of Excellence for Applied Research and Training (CERT) – a part of the UAE Higher Colleges of Technology – to sponsor a Technology Forum in support of math and science education. Held in Abu Dhabi, the forum brought together 150 current and future military leaders, students and industry professionals. Attendees participated in briefi ngs about current and emerging technologies and experienced interactive demonstrations on UAV common ground control, Distributed Common Ground System 10.2, and cybersecurity. The forum provided a unique opportunity for students to network with Raytheon’s technical experts.
Raytheon is working to develop a student competition to inspire students to achieve excellence in engineering and technology.
