What brings you to the EXPO this year?

The aviation industry needs continuous, often disruptive innovation. However, it faces the constraint of having few research facilities around the world. Our University offers the option of aligning aviation license holders with PG educated experts, and thus contributes towards the research requirements in the field. Our department strives to become a ‘Think Tank’ for aviation, while providing a transformation platform that will enrich the aviation field, and will lead to further novel developments for the industry and the profession.
