AMMAN — TechWorks, a Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) initiative, on Thursday signed a cooperation agreement with Bright Engineers to improve training in the field of robotics and establish an initiative for Jordanian innovators.

The agreement, signed at the TechWorks headquarters, is renewable and will last for three years, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Under the agreement, TechWorks will provide its facilities for training members of the Bright Engineers programme.

Tamam Mango, CPF CEO, said that the agreement would also open new doors for members of TechWorks through robotics and artificial intelligence training. 

Having qualified trainers for each level of the study and having a clear training programme can provide the Kingdom’s market with promising students who can put Jordan on the world map in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence, Mango added.

She stressed that specialists describe artificial intelligence as the industry of the future, which accords with the main goal of establishing TechWorks.

Majid Hamad, director of Bright Engineers, said that such cooperation directs youth’s energy towards innovative projects related to robotics and technology. 

Launched in May 2018, TechWorks is a CPF flagship innovation platform to encourage technical education for youth by providing tools, talent, resources and institutions, as well as a level playing field on which to compete, according to Petra.
