Exeter College has secured government funding to be able to offer students studying the National Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering the chance to learn at a world-leading university in Florida.
The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is a specialised Aeronautical University based in Florida with several campuses across the globe. The university offers associate, bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degree programmes in arts, sciences, aviation, business, and engineering.
This summer Exeter College students will have ten days to fully immerse themselves in university life and participate in core learning activities linked to aviation.
Students will be trained by world-class aviation teachers, global leaders in their profession, and learn specific skills and knowledge in drone technology, alternative fuels and future flight technologies.
Students will also be given the opportunity to apply the theory they have already learned in the classroom at the Future Skills Centre to real-life scenarios. This experience will improve their employability and career prospects, having developed their skill set in an aeronautical industry placement.
