DCAA will also support EAU’s training programme while the university will provide special rates to DCAA employees and their families seeking to pursue their education with the university.

Meanwhile, EAU students will be able to gain practical, on-ground air traffic management experience through several initiatives such as; dans’ internships and professional training to better equip them for the job market. In addition, EAU will support dans in enhancing its programmes through designing new courses that cater to aviation market requirements.

The partnership is the first of its nature for dans uniting an educational institute specialising in all spectrum of Aviation studies with a historical organisation leading air navigation services in the realm of the United Arab Emirates.
