The American University of Bahrain (AUBH) has signed a partnership deal with Premo Group (Premo), a leading company in the design and manufacture of innovative solutions for electronic components.

This partnership is aimed at cultivating the next generation of engineering leaders, through the offering of international scholarships to two AUBH engineering graduates, annually.

This collaboration brings together two companies from the portfolio of Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company (Mumtalakat), the sovereign wealth fund of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and is in line with Mumtalakat’s efforts to enhance collaborative opportunities between its companies.

This initiative provides a unique and unparalleled opportunity for two outstanding engineering graduates from AUBH to embark on a fully funded, one-year internship at PREMO Group, including facilities in Spain or other international locations.

Dr. Bradley J. Cook, President of AUBH, said that, “This partnership is a testament to our commitment to offering our students unparalleled opportunities for growth and development. This partnership with PREMO Group allows us to elevate our education by providing engineering students with a truly global perspective, preparing them for successful careers in the dynamic field of engineering.”

Further, the program is supported by the Labour Fund (Tamkeen), through the Global Ready Talent Program, which accelerates professional development by providing on-the-job training at various prestigious institutions around the world, thus enhancing the skills, knowledge, and competitiveness of the local workforce.

According to the statement, “The strategic alliance between AUBH and PREMO Group reflects a shared commitment to nurturing innovation, fostering global perspectives, and bridging the gap between academia and industry. The selected graduates will gain invaluable hands-on experience within PREMO’s cutting-edge engineering projects, contributing to real-world solutions in a dynamic and international work environment.”
