Are you interested in building a career in the aviation industry?

To become a licensed aircraft maintenance engineer and establish a career in the aviation industry, one must undertake professional training leading to the appropriate certification and qualifications.

Our bachelor’s degree programme in aircraft maintenance has been developed to set you on the path to becoming a licensed aircraft maintenance engineer and a maintenance manager in the future.

It is fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) and is designed to have a combination of an aeronautical engineering technology degree component and a professional licensing component. For the professional licensing component, students will go through structured training at approved training organisations authorized by the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia (CAAM).  

Upon completion of this programme, our graduates will have the knowledge, confidence and skills beneficial for their career prospects and will be able to complete further studies. Before applying to the CAAM for the license, graduates will need to obtain two years maintenance experience at approved maintenance organisations.

*Licensed aircraft maintenance engineers with well-documented previous training and experience who wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree may be eligible for Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) towards this qualification.
