The Aviation Market worldwide is growing with rising employment opportunities for the Licensed Aircraft Engineers. Airline fleets are growing, and traveller numbers are on the increase. Statistics indicate in the near years to come; the aviation field will have a high demand for Licensed Aircraft Engineers.

EAU with the approval of the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and UAE GCAA (General Civil Aviation Authority) are licensed to conduct the B1.1 (Aeroplanes Turbine), B1.2 (Aeroplanes Piston) and B2 (Avionics) courses. These courses are based on the EASA PART-66 and GCAA CAR-66 syllabus.


On successful completion of all the required modules at EAU, a COR (Certificate of Recognition) and a Higher Diploma Certificate will be issued. The COR will be recognised in the EASA member states and the UAE.


Upon completion of the COR, candidates need to show evidence of the required experience in a 145-approved organization to obtain the basic B1.1, B1.2 and B2 licence from the EASA and GCAA respectively.

Why enrol on this programme?

Based on the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in the next 20 years, airlines will have to add 25,000 new aircraft to the current 17,000 strong commercial fleet. By 2026, the industry will need 480,000 new technicians to maintain these aircraft. Clearly, the international market has a huge shortage of Licenced Aircraft Engineers.


EAU’s AME programme is licensed by the EASA and UAE GCAA and complies with the PART-66 and CAR-66 syllabus.

Accreditation

The Higher Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance and the Certificate of Recognition is a dual award conferred by the Emirates Aviation University (EAU), EASA and GCAA respectively. The EAU award is recognised by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai.

Career Prospects

EAU’s AME graduates will enjoy a high employability rate. Their career path is tailored towards becoming Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers. They may also work with airline engineering departments or support aircraft maintenance organisations. While working in the industry, EAU’s AME graduates have the option of enrolling into a relevant bachelor programme at EAU on a part-time basis to further tier career. This gives the graduates an opportunity to work in anyone of the EASA and GCAA approved maintenance organizations.
