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. Combining the profound technical expertise in Air Navigation Services that dans offers with the academic knowledge that EAU possesses, will present a full rounded academic program for students studying aviation related disciplines looking to pursue their career in the Aviation sector, as well as for employees seeking further career enhancement.

Dr.Ahmad Al Ali, EAU’s Vice Chancellor commented: “There is global demand for operational and technical roles such as Air Traffic controllers and navigators – particularly in this part of the world where air traffic is expected to continue growing.  This new joint venture allows us to capitalise on dans’ technical expertise in air navigation and traffic management to provide a highly-specialised resource that our industry needs for future development.”
