Embry-Riddle Makes French Connection

Forms Cooperative Relationship With the International Space University

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and the International Space University (ISU) in Strasbourg, France, have forged an alliance for the advancement of space studies. In a Memorandum of Understanding between the universities, the framers of the program outlined several mutually agreed upon objectives, including:

  • At least five Embry-Riddle graduates will enroll annually in the Master of Space Science degree program at International Space University.
  • Embry-Riddle will be able to expand its graduate interdisciplinary curricula.
  • When requested, ISU will provide faculty and lecturers for Embry-Riddle projects.
  • ISU will guarantee admission to at least five Embry-Riddle students for the Summer Session Program.
  • At least one Embry-Riddle faculty member per year will be provided an overseas sabbatical opportunity.
  • The universities will collaborate on workshops, seminars, public education forums, and professional development programs.
  • Each university will promote programs offered by the other.

"With these two exceptional institutions joining forces, we are striving to achieve a new level of international cooperation in the field of space education," said Randy Johnson, dean of the College of Aviation at Embry-Riddle’s Prescott (AZ) campus. "It’s a perfect match for both programs."

The International Space University has as part of its mission the study and development of outer space for peaceful purposes through postgraduate education and research.

"This agreement allows us to offer our master’s level expertise to Embry-Riddle graduates who will have already received an excellent undergraduate education in space studies," said Walter Peters, acting dean of the International Space University. "This is an exciting, mutually beneficial international partnership."

The Memorandum of Understanding will remain in force for five years and will be automatically renewed for further five-year periods unless terminated by one of the parties.
