Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Aerospace Technology


Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering is a highly-advanced discipline that explores how flight is possible and how flying vehicles are manufactured, powered, operated, controlled and maintained.

The Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Aerospace Technology offers a stimulating, dynamic, and hands-on course in aerospace and aeronautical engineering. This programme provides you with the practical training and commercial acumen you will need to succeed in this high-technology field. The programme prepares learners for various jobs and careers in the airline industry on aircraft acquisitions, planning, configuration and maintenance.

The following qualification is also available as exit award of the Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Aerospace Technology.

  • Higher National Diploma (Advanced Diploma) in Aeronautical Engineering – 2 Years

Why enrol on this programme?

The Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Aerospace Technology is a three year programme based on the British model for higher education awards. During those three years learners will receive a broad education and application in all Aerospace disciplines, such as aerodynamics, flight mechanics, propulsion, structures and systems.

From the very first day of studying at our University, Learners will use the aircraft as objects of study in order to gain knowledge about learning skills. As the programme progresses, the emphasis shifts gradually from theory to application. Lectures alternate with seminars, laboratory courses and projects where you put the knowledge you have acquired into practice. The paradigm of the programme is skill-based with less focus on theory and more on coursework and application.

The Aerospace industry has many exciting opportunities - from design and construction to maintenance and operations. The Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Aerospace Technology programme will provide learners with the skills and knowledge to pursue these opportunities. Learners will develop the technical skills required to maintain 21st century Aviation and Aerospace fleets into the future. Students will learn how to inspect, maintain, troubleshoot, diagnose, develop and repair aircraft discrepancies using highly-advanced equipment and techniques.


The Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Aerospace Technology is a dual award programme conferred by Emirates Aviation University and Coventry University, UK. The EAU award is recognised by the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) in the UAE.

The Higher National Diploma (Advanced Diploma) in Aeronautical Engineering is a dual exit award conferred by Emirates Aviation University and BTEC Pearson, UK. The EAU award is recognised by the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) in the UAE.

Career Prospects

This programme aims to equip graduates with the skills to become successful engineers and engineering managers, both in aerospace and the wider engineering industry. Graduates of this programme have gone on to become aircraft maintenance engineers, planning engineers, design engineers, quality engineers and engineering managers for a wide variety of companies. Some have chosen to become pilots. Graduates may choose to pursue a higher education (Master’s and PhD degrees) in several engineering areas that include Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering.

Practical Experience

Not only will students learn comprehensive theory, but EAU will also provide the means to gain practical experience in well-equipped laboratories and workshops as well as hands on experience in a real workplace environment through on job training and internships where applicable.
