The Aeronautical Engineering Technology (Professional Piloting) programme has been developed in response to the requirements of the fast-evolving aviation industry. The programme is designed with an emphasis on practical application that would enable students to apply new knowledge in the real-world. It concentrates on the aeronautical engineering technology to provide substantial knowledge and skills for a future aeronautical technologist in related areas and applications. The Aeronautical Engineering Technology (Professional Piloting) programme also equips students for a professional career as a commercial pilot.
To produce competent, technically skilful, and innovative graduates, the Aeronautical Engineering Technology (Professional Piloting) programme is designed to have a combination of aeronautical technology component and professional licensing component. For the aeronautical technology component, the offered courses cover all areas under aeronautical engineering technology such as aerodynamics, aircraft structure and design, propulsion, aircraft systems and control, and material technology. These courses are conducted through lectures, tutorials, laboratory experiments, bachelor’s degree project, workshop practices, and industrial training, which are all accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
For the professional licensing component, students will go through a structured programme authorized by the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia (CAAM). The programme contains both theoretical and practical aspects that finally enable students to obtain the Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL frozen). Students will undertake their professional pilot training programme at UTHM owned Approved Training Organization-Flying Training Organization (ATO-FTO) in Senai International Airport, Johor. The new flight school, called the Asia Aeronautical Training Academy (AATA) (https://www.aata.edu.my), is a collaborative effort between UTHM and its industry partner, ATAS Aeronautik Sdn. Bhd
This degree aims to provide students with skills and knowledge beyond the fundamental flying skills required to be a commercial pilot. The degree is designed to equip students to successfully operate in the aviation industry, in the cockpit and beyond. Graduates with a unique combination of flying qualifications and an undergraduate degree may be seen as an asset to their employer.
*The international student must obtain the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) approval before applying to the programme.
