Cristina Gonzalez, a master of science in safety science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, is looking for input on her final graduate research project on the standardization of English in international aviation. She has set up an anonymous survey to learn more about how the English language proficiency requirement fits into the world of aviation today.
Embry-Riddle’s campuses at Daytona Beach, Fla., and Prescott, Ariz. will hold a variety of aviation-focused short courses in a traditional face-to-face classroom environment beginning in April. Two three-day workshops at the Daytona Beach Campus will cover aviation safety management systems and unmanned aircraft systems.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will roll out six new undergraduate and graduate degree programs over the next 18 months. Among the undergraduate offerings are aviation security, commercial space operations and global business, while the new master’s programs include aviation finance, engineering management and unmanned autonomous systems engineering. The programs will be split among the school’s Florida, Arizona and worldwide campus network.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University published its 2013 schedule of safety courses. Three of the four week-long courses take place at the university’s Daytona Beach campus, while the fourth will be held at the Prescott, Ariz. facility. Topics include occupational safety and health and aviation ground safety; aviation safety program management; aircraft accident investigation and management; and an advanced accident management class.
Changes are coming for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Booth No. 1185). School president John Johnson and worldwide campus chancellor John Watret have established an Embry-Riddle Worldwide College of Business, which will effectively replace the current Worldwide Department of Business Administration for the university. This more formally structured college will serve more than 4,000 undergraduate and 2,500 graduate students who are participating in eight degree programs.
