The MIHC is a testament to GAMI’s commitment to human capital and its belief in the indispensable role of human capital in localizing technologies and defense industries in the Kingdom.

Main programs


Emerging from GAMI's desire to empower meaningful transformation in the Kingdom's defense ecosystem, achieving the strategic objectives of the MIHC strategy lies in leveraging 3 core programs:


Education and Training

These programs focus on developing specific skillsets through which gaps in the sector are filled efficiently and effectively. This is achieved by striking the delicate balance between industry programs on one hand, and the programs addressing more general needs of the educational system on the other.


Awareness & Guidelines

The aim of these programs is to increase awareness of University specialties or vocational training fields with the intention of empowering students to make better informed decisions as it pertains to these career paths.



These programs seek to build an interactive and vibrant environment comprising future national talents who will lead the Kingdom’s defense sector, and the entities operating in it, through setting policy frameworks, establishing organized developmental programs, employing performance management, and leveraging supervision and monitoring programs.
