Aerospace & Aviation
Teaching language: English
The Aerospace & Aviation Industry is one of the driving forces behind globalisation. It has radically changed our concept of distance, leading to the emergence of new economies and improved the quality of life of millions of people throughout the world. Over the last few decades the sector has undergone profound changes – deregulation on a global scale (challenged today with the rise of protectionism), the predominance of electronic ticketing and online booking platforms, increasingly fierce competition from Middle Eastern airlines & hubs,low-cost airlines & satellite launch services, the rise of Security & Defence challenges, aircraft connectivity, digital transformation and environmental concerns - to name but a few.
Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.
– Eddie Rickenbacker
