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.
