BSc (Hons) Professional Aviation Engineering Practice
International Aviation Academy Norwich
- September 2020, Full Time
NB This programme is subject to revalidation ready for September 2020/21 entry.
However, the revised programme will maintain the key feature of providing applicants with the opportunity to pass European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) B1.1 or B2 examinations (subject to chosen pathway in Year Two), whilst studying for an aviation degree. This course page will be updated once the new programme has been approved. All applicants who have applied prior to the publication of the revised material, and been offered places on the course, will be notified of the changes to the programme.
This specialist aviation engineering degree course will allow you to gain practical experience alongside advanced academic study.
To work on an aircraft unsupervised, you need a licence from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) alongside a minimum of two years of practical experience. This course allows you to work on a fully functional Boeing 737 aircraft in the International Aviation Academy Norwich’s (IAAN) world class Aviation Emulation Zone® which will help kick start your journey to a high flying career.
Delivered in partnership with KLM UK Engineering and awarded by University of East Anglia, this course has been designed to ensure you develop the knowledge, technical skills, understanding and awareness necessary to work in technical, supervisory or management roles in the industry.

Flexible study options
Most of our courses require no more than two days attendance at college. This means you can continue to work alongside your studies and balance other commitments.

Our smaller class sizes mean you get all the support you need during studies. This is a crucial difference to larger universities and provides you with access to your lecturers when you need them.
Applicants will need 96 UCAS points (or appropriate level 3 qualification). Mature students with a relevant industrial background may also be considered. All applicants will need GCSE English and Maths (at either grade C or grade 4 and above).
