Tamkeen‘s Global Ready Talent Program has struck a groundbreaking partnership with the American University in Bahrain (AUBH), setting the stage for students to embark on a transformative journey at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

Two bright students, Mohamed Jaafar, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, and Noor Abduljalil, specializing in Mechanical Engineering, have been handpicked for this year’s internship program. This initiative aims to provide Bahraini students with invaluable exposure to CERN’s cutting-edge scientific endeavors, empowering them to refine their skills and chart a path towards professional success.

CERN, renowned as one of the world’s foremost scientific research institutions, delves into the mysteries of the universe, particularly in the realms of elementary particle physics. With its groundbreaking projects such as the Large Hadron Collider, CERN offers an unparalleled platform for students like Mohamed and Noor to engage with groundbreaking discoveries and expand their technical acumen.

Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, Chief Executive of Tamkeen, expressed her optimism about the program’s potential to foster economic growth in Bahrain by equipping national talents with advanced skills and global exposure. This sentiment was echoed by Dr. Bradley Cook, President of AUBH, who emphasized the significance of Tamkeen’s support in providing students with international opportunities to nurture their professional aspirations.

Tamkeen’s Global Ready Talent program has already made significant strides, having placed 98 Bahrainis across various sectors, facilitating skill enhancement and exposure to international work environments. This strategic partnership with AUBH and CERN aligns seamlessly with Tamkeen’s vision for economic development and private sector growth, underpinning its commitment to empowering Bahraini youth and driving innovation on a global scale.
