Programme Aims
The programme aims to equip students with the professional knowledge and skills to design, propose solutions or make recommendation in the fields of aircraft maintenance and aircraft engineering. Modules specialised in aircraft engineering such as mechanics of flight, propeller, aircraft system design, gas turbine engine, flight stability and automatic control will be the emphases of the programme. Moreover, the programme prepares students to take the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department HKAR-66 Cat. B1.1 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Basic Licence Examination. The programme covers a broad range of professional knowledge including safety, regulations, societal and environmental considerations. It also covers the provision of general education and work-integrated learning. Graduates will be professionally competent in the aircraft industry.
Professional Recognition
The programme has been approved by the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HKCAD) as a HKAR66 Cat. B1.1 Basic License Training Course. That means graduates who accumulate around 1,100 hours of aircraft maintenance practical training and pass all the HKAR-66 Cat. B1.1 knowledge examinations and practical assessments are eligible to award the HKAR-147 Certificate of Recognition (CoR). With this CoR, graduates only need 2 years of relevant work experience to apply for the HKAR-66 Cat B1.1 Aircraft Maintenance License.

  3. Students who opt for the Certificate of Recognition for the HKAR-147 Cat. B1.1 Aircraft Maintenance Licence should fulfill the practical training requirement (Graduates from the Higher Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering should also meet the attendance requirements stipulated by HKAR-66). They are required to accumulate about 1,100 hours of practical training / industrial attachment as arranged by THEi, at an extra fee. (For reference, around HK$20,000 would be required for each academic year and the actual fee is subject to change.)
