We are the only university in the UK that has integrated the industry-standard aircraft maintenance qualification ‘EASA Part-66’ with an Honours degree, delivered on a single campus. On completion of the required EASA training, you’ll be able to obtain a full EASA Part-66 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence in just two years, which usually requires five years’ professional experience.*
Students who complete the modules as part of the BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering course can potentially achieve a professional license with just two years experience, instead of five.
BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering student Natalie Simpson comments: "The EASA Part 66 modules mean it will generally be a fast track to becoming a licensed engineer. Part of the EASA modules mean doing work experience using all of the knowledge we have acquired whilst on the course, which will also be favourable to employers."
*EASA Part-66 Licence: Attend 2,400 hours of the EASA elements, pass EASA modules at 75%, complete 12 weeks of approved work experience (additional costs may apply and are at the discretion of your host organisation) and you’ll get a three-year reduction in your experience requirement for an EASA Part-66 Licence. Otherwise you will need five years’ experience.
