Career pathways

Airworthiness is a key area in aviation as it entails a set of procedures and regulations with an aim to ensure aircraft can be safely operated throughout their lives without significant hazard to aircrew, passengers or third parties. Given the stringent operational scenarios of both civil and military aircraft on a global scale, the need for aviation professionals with specialised knowledge in airworthiness is of paramount importance. The Master of Engineering (Airworthiness) is a unique program that has been designed with an aim to meet the industry needs in this area.

Graduate career paths include:

  • airworthiness engineering in design, engineering and manufacturing organisations
  • airworthiness policy and regulations formulation and administration in aviation regulating authorities
  • aircraft and aeronautical product design and certification in design and engineering organisations
  • aircraft maintenance management in airlines, continuing airworthiness management organisations and maintenance organisations.
