Full-time | 2021

This course is delivered at Newcastle College Aviation Academy based at Newcastle International Airport. The course is designed to meet the needs of industry by producing aircraft maintenance engineering graduates equipped with the necessary technical knowledge, skills and personal and professional qualities to be successful in the exciting and rewarding world of aircraft engineering. The course is mapped to and embeds the knowledge requirements detailed in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 66 category B1.1 (large commercial) aircraft maintenance engineering licence syllabus. This course will give you all of the theoretical knowledge, practical training and hand and maintenance skills required. The course offers the opportunity to obtain an EASA Part 66 Basic Training Course Certificate of Recognition which reduces the amount of maintenance organisation work experience required for a licence application from five to two years. The EASA licence material is fully embedded throughout the degree programme to give you the best possible chance of success. This programme was developed with employers and industry bodies to ensure all requirements are met for both the academic requirements of the programme and the requirements of the aviation industry. This course will provide you with the necessary skills to gain employment within aircraft engineering, maintenance and repair organisations with opportunities for you to become a B1.1 (large commercial) licenced aircraft engineer. The course also provides an alternative for those wishing to seek employment in other areas of the aviation industry such as maintenance planning and control, product development, technical services and other support departments. There is also the possibility to progress to a Master Degree

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
