Main Campus, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
This unique new course is the only one of its kind in Scotland and is designed to produce graduate-calibre aircraft maintenance engineers.
The course meets the requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) category B1 or B2 aircraft maintenance engineering licence syllabus (Part-66). Delivered in conjunction with AST, the oldest aviation training organisation of its type in the world, it provides you with the opportunity to obtain a training certificate in addition to an honours degree.
This will reduce the amount of live aircraft work experience you must obtain before applying for a category B, aircraft maintenance engineer licence. Obtaining a category B licence is the first step on the path to becoming a certifying, licensed aircraft engineer, a person responsible for signing-off (certifying) the work carried out on aircraft and their systems and equipment.
3 Highers at BCC including Maths at B (Physics or Engineering Science at B if Maths not held at B) plus National 5 Physics at B and English necessary; or Foundation Apprenticeship Engineering or relevant national qualifications at SCQF Level 6.
Entry to year 3 may be possible with an approved EASA Part-66 Category B qualification; or a full Category B Licence.
