Do you want to be an aircraft maintenance engineer? The University of South Wales’s BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering degree has been designed to meet the demands of the aerospace maintenance industry and will equip you with the depth and range of knowledge expected of a modern aerospace engineer. This Aircraft Maintenance Engineering course is recognised by European aviation law, as detailed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and gives you access to real aircraft experience. 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.* The University has approved Maintenance Training Organisation status. This means that our Aerospace Centre on campus is treated as a live aircraft environment, and upholds the same commercial aviation quality control you would expect in the industry worldwide. This approach not only meets EASA regulations, but will also help you make the transition from the classroom into employment. You’ll also have the option to undertake on the job training all over the world with any University-approved PART 145 Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) organisation.
