The close relationship between Turkish Aerospace and NUST, which turned into a memorandum of understanding with the attendance of Republic of Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, paves the way for new collaborations. As part of these partnerships, an additional 14 students from Pakistan joined Turkish Aerospace as interns.
Turkish Aerospace successfully continues its project with the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), listed as one of the world’s top 500 universities, as the first collaboration carried out with Turkey’s sibling country Pakistan.
The close relationship between Turkish Aerospace and NUST turned into a memorandum of understanding with the attendance of Republic of Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. This academic collaboration was made official with the support of both states.
As part of the project, which was initiated as capacity development and exchange of human resources in 2019, 15 students from Pakistan visited the company in the summer of 2019, and in August 2020, 14 new engineering students joined the company as interns.
The internship program will enable Turkish Aerospace to provide the students from Pakistan with advanced knowledge and experience in the aerospace industry, adding a new dimension to the ongoing mutual relationship with Pakistan. The program will play an active role in helping Pakistan acquire qualified and trained human resources in the mid- and long term.
As the first Turkish company to open an office at the National Science and Technology Park, Pakistan’s first science park, with the attendance of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Turkish Aerospace took an important step in collaborating to develop new technologies for the future of the aviation ecosystem. In the future, the company aims to form new collaborations and to sign new projects with Pakistan in the fields of R&D and innovation.
