BSc Aircraft Maintenance

It is a 3 years (6 semesters) full-time BSc Aircraft Maintenance undergraduate degree by Bharathiar University under the Scheme - Centre for Collaboration with Industry and Institutes. 

We trains students to take up challenges in the Technical aspects of Aviation, especially in Airline (MRO) Maintenance Repair and Overhauling organisations, Airlines, Airports and other Aviation organisations. This course enables students to get the appropriate PracticalMaintenance Training as per Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Civil Aviation regulatory board requirements on live operating Aircrafts.

The duration of the course is logged in Personal Experience Record Books which is validated as work experience by the Training Manager of the AMRO.

This course doubles as Degree for those students doing Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) CAR 66 Modular Exams.

If the students wish to take up DGCA CAR 66 License examinations they may do those exams as well. Civil Aviation Authority issues Certificates of Airworthiness to private and commercial aircraft which are in fully serviceable condition at all times. Only qualified and certified Aircraft Maintenance Engineers who are issued with the license and practical maintenance training record books in various categories by the Civil Aviation department are allowed to certify the maintenance, repair and overhaul that are carried out on an aircraft.

HAA prepares the students to appear for their DGCA examinations as well, in the "B1 - Mechanical" and "B2 - Avionics" stream. The students do their DGCA CAR Part 66 module examinations for either B1 or B2 specifically. Thereafter, complete their On-Job-Training prior to them going for type-rating on specific of aircraft made by manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Embraer, etc. Students are awarded the Basic Examination Certificate which will qualify them for employment in Civil Airlines.

Objective:

The 3 years Bachelor Degree BSc (Aircraft Maintenance) is offered with the following objectives:

  • To help students learn the fundamentals of AeronauticalScience specifically in reference to Aircrafts and Airline operations, aviation science, basics of management and its applications. It also aims to develop student’s interest in Aeronautics and related fields.
  • Practical Maintenance Training on live operating aircrafts.
  • To develop managers with interdisciplinary knowledge on Aviation and Management.
  • To ensure that the students are employable as per Civil Aviation Regulations in any part of the world.
  • To help in the overall growth of the students by training them in attitude, social behaviour, decision making, goal setting, focusing and working towards realising their ambitions.
Resource and Methodology

The course curriculum is framed in such a way that the students are taught theory in a simple and systematic way simultaneously with ‘hands on’ training on maintenance of an aircraft and its systems through practical maintenance training on live operating aircrafts at a DGCA and EASA Part 145 AMRO approved organisation. The course is conducted by qualified and experienced faculty. The teaching is supplemented by audio-visual aids for students to understand the complexities of aircraft operation and aircraft support systems.

Students are encouraged to take part in classroom presentations, seminars and workshops. Assignments, periodical tests and exams ensure effective learning experiences for the students. Regular student feedbacks on teaching are followed up with remedial teaching and guest lecturers to keep pace with recent developments in the aviation industry. holistic development, intellectual nourishment, quality education, emotional stability, ability to face the challenges in a competitive world must be given to students through curricular, co-curricular, extra-curricular and sports activities through a well-planned calendar of events which are to be executed meticulously.

Career Prospects:

The Civil Aviation industry provides enormous employment opportunities in India and abroad. Those who wish to have a secure future in the technical aspects of Aircrafts, Airlines and Airports.

The rapid modernization of aircrafts and airports has also translated into the creation of additional opportunities.
