(Core modules would be conducted at THEi (Tsing Yi) and some General Education (GE) modules at other campuses.)
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.
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.
