The nature of work is changing – not just in the UAE, but across the world. In the wake of increasing digitalisation, it is necessary for governments, corporations and individuals to take a proactive and strategic effort to skill, reskill and upskill, and prepare for the jobs of the future. EDGE consolidates over 25 entities and employs more than 12,000 brilliant minds – with a primary focus on defence and security. Our goal is to enable and secure the UAE’s critical defence infrastructure, while developing sovereign capabilities and contributing to shaping a robust knowledge-based economy.
To demonstrate our commitment to these goals, we are building opportunities for top talent in the advanced technology industry, through both short- and long-term training and education programmes. Working with leading universities, both within the UAE and abroad, EDGE identifies promising local talent and supports them through specialised programmes, to ensure the transfer of sector-focused expertise to young Emirati engineers - helping build a strong ecosystem of skilled professionals.
Upon completion of their education and training programmes, the selected candidates are equipped with the relevant knowledge and competencies to pursue a career with EDGE, across our five core clusters – Platforms & Systems, Missiles & Weapons, Cyber Defence, Electronic Warfare & Intelligence and Mission Support. Candidates will focus on key areas including: autonomous capabilities, directed energy, cyber-physical systems, advanced propulsion systems, robotics, smart materials and artificial intelligence.
Furthermore, EDGE is investing extensively across key research and development domains, leveraging partnerships with universities and elite experts to create a global hub in advanced technology – where employees are offered the opportunity to explore, innovate, and enable a secure future.
