about us

Improvements in human development indices and the attainment of laudable goals such as the Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs] are human capital intensive and require the availability of such a critical mass of competent persons in adequate numbers. Disparities in the availability of skilled human resources are primarily responsible for disparities in socio-economic development and the economic status of citizens of different countries in the developed and developing world.


About Us

The African Aviation & Aerospace University (AAAU), Abuja is envisioned to be a citadel of excellence in the delivery of university education in Africa.

It is planned to make an immediate positive impact in the spectrum of Nigerian universities, regionally and globally. The University represents the overlaying efforts of the Federal Ministry of Aviation to make meaningful contributions to the development of aviation industry through university education. The goals of the AAAU in setting up the University are in agreement with the objectives of the National Policy on Education in seeking to guarantee access to education for all Nigerians and others, as well as to make sure that education addresses the needs of individuals, country and continent.

The importance of the quality, competence and calibre of the human capital of a continent in today’s highly competitive world makes the provision of functional and relevant education a critical success factor in any nation’s quest for socio-economic and technological development. In today’s knowledge society, the wealth of nations is no longer measured in terms of mineral resources but in terms of the quality and quantum of available human resources. The Knowledge Economy Index [KEI] is now a measure of the wealth and level of development of nations. Functional university education is thus a critical success factor in the production of a critical mass of human capital that will be the arrowhead and driver of the development process.
