In addition to serving as Educational Host of IBAS and participating in seminars, offering simulators, drone demonstrations and career information, Embry-Riddle senior leadership is meeting with industry and academic leaders in Brazil to develop partnerships, expand existing agreements and offer educational opportunities on behalf of its Central & South America Office, which opened in 2016. Embry-Riddle’s hub for the region located in Sao Paulo offers tailored professional education, applied research programs and student recruitment and support.
According to Embry-Riddle Central & South America’s Executive Director Fabio Campos “Serving as Educational Host of IBAS is an excellent way to connect with those who are as invested in the success of Central and South America’s aviation industry as we are – whether they are a professional entity seeking growth and training or a potential student who dreams of a future in aviation. These partnerships and professional education programs exemplify the university’s commitment as a whole by incorporating expertise and faculty from Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide and Daytona Beach, Fla., campuses.”
IBAS aims to bring together the aerospace supply chain, airport infrastructure, and commercial and executive suppliers to foster discussions and bring about improvement to the industry. Embry-Riddle’s partnerships and programs being announced this week at IBAS include:
“We are proud of our university’s long, collaborative history in Brazil dating back to World War II, and as we move forward, we are excited to be a vital partner to established aerospace education, industry and business entities in the region,” says Dr. John R. Watret, Chancellor of Embry-Riddle Worldwide.
Embry-Riddle will have a booth, a simulator and drone zone and an auditorium at IBAS. For more information on the IBAS, go to internationalbrazilairshow.com.
