BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering

The BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering course is recognised by European Aviation Law, as detailed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and gives you access to real aircraft experience.

We are the only University in the UK that has integrated the industry-standard aircraft maintenance qualification EASA Part-66 with an Honours degree, and deliver it on campus. On completion of the required EASA training, you will be able to obtain a full EASA Part-66 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer License in just two years, which usually requires five years professional experience.*

The University has a unique partnership with British Airways which means you’ll benefit from using the same EASA curriculum and EASA-based learning materials as British Airways uses to train its own staff.

The aerospace industry has become increasingly competitive and in recognising this, the University has recently invested another 3.3m into its existing aerospace facilities. A two-storey Aerospace Centre extension adds 1,000m2 of practical workshop and laboratory space for engineering students. This includes two aircraft hangars with civil and military aircraft, and a MP521 engineering flight simulator.

The Aerospace Centre is home to a Jetstream 31 Twin Turboprop aircraft, assembled with Honeywell...
