Dubai, UAE, 24 Juy 2018:   Emirates Aviation University (EAU) has announced the launch of a new research centre and doctoral training college in collaboration with Coventry University.

The Dubai-based Research Centre for Digital Innovation and Artificial Intelligence will train its research students to specialise in a range of disciplines related to these fields, including aviation, management, security and smart cities.

Building on an existing partnership between EAU and Coventry, through which the two institutions have run joint postgraduate programmes in the aerospace field for over a decade, the new venture will see PhD students awarded their degree from both universities.

Research students will be based in Dubai, but will also spend time in Coventry and receive support from Coventry University academics.

The research areas will be closely aligned with those focused on by Coventry University’s Research Institute for Future Transport and Cities. The research activities will also support the emergence of Dubai as a centre for aviation, an incubator for new approaches to urban development and, increasingly, new digital advancements.

 “Our partnership with Coventry has always added value to the education that our students received and it’s proved to be successful. The opening of the new research centre and doctoral training college is a testament to our growing commitment to always provide students with the best tools to develop their skills and capabilities”, said Dr Ahmad Al Ali, Vice-Chancellor of Emirates Aviation University.

“The shared expertise of our two universities in the aerospace and transport industries, and our joint ambition to advance knowledge and skills in these fields, have provided the perfect platform for the launch of this new doctoral training college and research centre,” said Richard Dashwood, deputy vice-chancellor for research at Coventry University.

“We very much look forward to welcoming the first cohort of research students in September, and to working with colleagues at the Emirates Aviation University to train the next generation of talent in aviation, innovation and artificial intelligence,” he added.

The EAU, which is located in the Dubai International Academic City, a vibrant cluster of colleges and higher education institutions from around the world, was established in 1991 and currently has around 2,000 students from over 75 countries, many of whom are aiming for careers in the airline industry.
