We have worked closely with our partners to develop the first aviation engineering degree courses available in the UK.

We currently offer two different aviation engineering degree-level qualifications. Students have the choice to study for two years and gain a foundation degree, or study for three years and gain a BSc (Hons) degree.

Professional Aviation Engineering Practice BSc (Hons) / Foundation degree

 

  • Students will be taught at AeroAcademy, which is located close to Cambridge Airport and the headquarters of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group; one of the world’s largest independent aerospace companies.
  • Will be available through selected partners and at our new Aviation Skills Hubs.
  • Designed to contribute towards gaining a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Category B licence.
  • Run by AeroAcademy, the University of South Wales (USW) and the Aviation Skills Partnership.

 

The first two years of training/education are common to both courses:

Year 1: provides the basic knowledge of the principles behind and the practical methods for performing essential engineering tasks; and provides an introduction to the use of design tools, manufacturing techniques and health and safety protocols.

Year 2: will present students with the option of pursuing either an EASA Type-B1 licence (which focuses on the mechanical engineering aspects of aircraft design) or a Type–B2 licence (which focuses on the avionics systems used in aircraft design).

Year 3: for the BSc (Hons) Degree only – covers a range of topics around the aerospace business environment. Students will, for example, learn about a variety of aeronautical engineering issues, including planning, operations, health and safety, regulations and management.

The 2016 intake has now opened and applications can be made at www.aeroacademy.co.uk, where entry qualification requirements are also listed along with details of Applicant Open Days.
