BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering

The University of South Wales’s BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering degree has been designed to meet the demands of the aerospace maintenance industry and will equip you with the depth and range of knowledge expected of a modern aerospace engineer.
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 apply for a full EASA Part-66 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer License with just two further years of professional experience (the accelerated route) if you have sourced and completed On The Job training in a CAA approved part 145 organisation and met the attainment and attendance requirements of CAA. Alternatively the non accelerated route requires five years of professional experience.

What you will study

The BSc Aircraft Maintenance Engineering degree has the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 66 Aircraft maintenance licence fully embedded within the university modules. This allows you the opportunity to obtain this industry recognised qualification whilst you study for your degree. The University of South Wales is the only EASA part 147 UK University currently approved to deliver and award this qualification as part of its BSc Aircraft Maintenance Engineering degree.
