Course summary

Are you considering Aviation as a career? Are you looking to study towards an EASA Aircraft Maintenance Licence? Would you like your training delivered by an organisation that has more than 90 years of experience in training aircraft maintenance personnel for the world’s airlines?This unique course is the only one of its kind in Scotland and is designed to produce graduate-calibre aircraft maintenance engineers.The BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and Management* meets the syllabus requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Category B1 aircraft maintenance licence syllabus (EASA Part-66). Delivered in conjunction with Air Service Training (Eng) Ltd, the longest established aviation maintenance training organisation of its type in the world, it provides you with the opportunity to obtain an EASA Certificate of Recognition in addition to an honours degree. The EASA Certificate of Recognition allows a reduction of the minimum aircraft maintenance experience required by an individual prior to applying for an aircraft maintenance licence.Obtaining a Category B licence is the first step on the path to becoming a certifying, licensed aircraft engineer, a person responsible for signing-off (certifying) the work carried out on aircraft, systems and equipment.The course is taught by staff with industrial experience both in military and civilian environments. You will combine academic and technical knowledge, understanding and skills, with the personal qualities and leadership skills needed to succeed in this dynamic industry.In years one and two, you will develop hand and maintenance skills of aircraft components and equipment, including system diagnosis, structural repairs and inspection techniques on a variety of airframes, alongside essential academic knowledge in areas such as maths, aerodynamics and propulsion.Unlike many other aircraft management courses, the third year provides an insight into the management roles within an aircraft maintenance environment and the wider knowledge and skills required by the aviation industry. In your final year you will complete a capstone project which will give you the opportunity to showcase all the skills you have acquired.You will be based at Perth College UHI which boasts world-class facilities, including hangar spaces for practical activities that simulate an active commercial EASA Part 145 maintenance environment. You will also benefit from close links with companies in the aviation industry within Scotland, the UK and worldwide.*subject to accreditation in March 2021
