The future of the region’s aviation sector is unfolding right before us with the opening of the University of South Wales aerospace academy. 

This new development is set to open doors for the next generation of aviation experts in the UAE by being strategically located right at the doorstep of the world’s largest airport, it provides students with a combined experience of academic rigour and hands-on training in an ideal setting at Dubai South.

Our recognition as a leader in the field of aircraft maintenance engineering education meant that we were a natural choice to be at a centre of the on-site education development, and we're pleased to have been selected to establish this partnership with Dubai South.

Having worked with some of the major players in the aviation industry, we have developed sector-leading skills with an international reputation. Being involved with Dubai South will mean USW will be in the right place to do business with the main operators in the aviation arena.
