Another Landing at AllianceTexas

In keeping with its vision of preparing aviation and aerospace leaders for tomorrow’s world, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) opened its second campus in Fort Worth on May 28 with evening and online classes in aeronautics, project management and systems engineering. The university leased 3,991 square feet at the Heritage Commons office complex at Alliance. The site also houses The Center for Aviation and Aerospace Leadership, an educational program to share aviation and aerospace leadership information.

The Alliance campus joins the original campus located at the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base. ERAU teamed with Tarrant County College and the University of North Texas to offer three degrees at Alliance.

AllianceTexas is a dynamic location that provides us direct access to global leaders in the aviation, aerospace and logistics industries,” said Dr. Mark Friend, ERAU Worldwide Central Region dean. “The proximity of our campus to these companies and our collaboration with local workforce development partners enable us to refine our programs based on the industry’s specific needs and fully prepare our students to meet the immediate and long-term demands of this industry.”
