In collaboration with the Emirates Group, ECU has established the ECU-Emirates Education and Research Centre in Dubai, for the delivery of specialised security programs and research.
Through this collaboration, ECU has positioned itself as a leading global provider of education and training to airlines, governments and international organizations. The programs are affiliated with the International Civil Aviation Authority.
ECU's collaboration with the Emirates Group was recognised by a 2006 Business/Higher Education Round Table (B-HERT) award for Best International Collaboration - Education and Training - Enhancing Security in an Increasingly Interdependent World.
Since the establishment of the partnership, six cohorts of students (or approximately 550 students) have graduated from the center, and the partners see the relationship as meeting industry need for better education within the aviation industry.
