Professionally-recognised degrees

Our aircraft maintenance engineering courses are recognised by aviation law, as detailed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), and gives you access to real aircraft experience. 

We have integrated the industry-standard aircraft maintenance qualification 'EASA Part 66' into our degrees. On completion of the required EASA training, you'll be able to apply for a full EASA Part 66 and GCAA Aircraft Maintenance engineering licence in just two years, which usually requires five years' professional experience*. 

*EASA Part 66 Licence: Complete all three years of the degree, attain 90% attendance of the EASA elements, pass EASA modules at 75%, complete 360 hours of approved practical training (additional costs may apply and are at the discretion of your Part 145 host organisation) and you'll be able to apply for an EASA Part 66 Licence after two years' experience. Otherwise, you will need five years' experience.

There may be an additional cost for the practical training depending on the maintenance organisation. Once the criteria above have been successfully met, you will be eligible for a three-year reduction in your professional experience requirement for an EASA Part-66 Licence.

If you do not meet all of the above criteria for the accelerated route, you will transfer to the non-accelerated route and will need five years’ professional experience in order to apply for an EASA Part-66 Licence.
