Al
Ain 15 February 2022 ; Maryam Al Kaabi from the College of ‎Engineering
at the United Arab Emirates ‎University
has invented a drill for aircraft ‎body,
while working on a “Mubadala”-‎launched
initiative to support the ‎university
students’ research‏.‏

Maryam
Al Kaabi, who has a Bachelor’s ‎degree
in Mechanical Engineering and a ‎Master’s
degree from the UAEU, said: I ‎was
part of a team consisting of two ‎colleagues
and our supervisor, we were ‎able
to invent an “automated” drill to help ‎make
holes in the aircraft body to install ‎pieces.
The tool light signifies that the it is ‎on
standby mode. Moreover, the tool can ‎make
such holes into the aircraft body at ‎the
required angle and force.” She added: ‎We
obtained a patent for this tool and ‎registered
it through the UAEU Patent ‎Office‏.‏

She
noted out that the UAE is a ‎pioneering
and supportive environment in ‎the
fields of innovation and sciences. The ‎UAE
encourages innovators who have ‎capabilities
in several fields. The world is ‎now
a highly competitive place in which ‎who
do not innovate and develop, they ‎will
not keep pace with change. She said: ‎Innovation
is the future, and the UAE is a ‎pioneer
in anticipating and leading the ‎future‏.‏

Maryam
Al Kaabi also said that “when I ‎worked
on my master’s thesis at the ‎UAEU,
we were developing and ‎inventing
a new device in the field of the ‎‎”aluminum”
processes and we are now ‎seeking
a patent for it as well‏.‏
