Summary

This specialist aviation engineering degree course will allow you to gain practical experience alongside advanced academic study. 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 and will help kick start your journey to a high-flying career.

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® whilst studying in our first class learning environment at IAAN.

The programme provides applicants with the opportunity to pass European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) B1.1 or B2 examinations (subject to chosen pathway), alongside academic study for an aviation degree.
Course Pathways
Students will choose, with appropriate tutorial support, whether to complete a Mechanical (EASA B1) or Avionics/Electrical (EASA B2) pathway.
For any individual pathway to operate the following rules apply:-
Example 1 - Where we recruit up to and including 28 students in total
We will be able to offer both B1 and B2 pathways, irrespective of the number of students selecting any individual pathway.

Example 2 - Where we recruit more than 28 students, and therefore need to offer more than 1 cohort to comply with appropriate EASA/CAA regulations on maximum class sizes.
Where all students select the same pathway (either all select mechanical, or all select avionics/electrical), we will operate two cohorts (either 2 x Mechanical, or 2 x avionics/electrical)

In cases where both pathways are requested, we need to ensure that no more than 28 students are enrolled onto either pathway to meet EASA regulatory requirements. Students will be supported in making pathway choices before enrolment and will be provided with individual tutorial support and pathway.

Why our College?

Flexible study options

Most of our courses require two days per week attendance at college. This means you can continue to work alongside your studies and balance other commitments.

Smaller class sizes

Our smaller class sizes mean you get all the support you need during your studies. This is a crucial difference to larger universities and provides you with access to your lecturers when you need them.

Outstanding progression

97% of our full time graduates and 100% of our part time graduates are in employment or further study 6 months after completing their degree (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes, 2019, for CCN, published by Office for Students)

Entry Requirements

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).
Applications from students whose first language is not English are welcome. For International students we require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading), the required minimum is: IELTS Academic (SELT) 6.0 overall (minimum 5.5 in all components). Please contact the Advice shop for advice and guidance. International candidates are also actively encouraged to access the International Students web page.

Assessment

The programme is assessed through a combination, academic assignments, presentations, portfolios and project work. Students will have the opportunity to complete B licence EASA examinations leading to B licence certification. NB Students who complete this element of the programme will be required to gain two years’ experience at an approved maintenance organisation before being able to apply for either a Category B1.1 or B2 EASA Licence, subject to their chosen pathway.

Progression

You can progress on to further study at Masters, M.Phil. and PhD level.

Career Progression

Successful completion of this course gives students the opportunity to progress into a range of technical, supervisory and, in due course, management roles with the aviation sector.
