Important information BSc (Hons) Aircraft Maintenance Engineering


Aircraft Maintenance Engineers ensure that aircraft are safe in flight, and are maintained to rigorous international standards.  Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) accounts for about 20% of the global aviation industry and is worth about £5bn to the UK economy each year.  The global aircraft fleet is expected to continue to grow over the next 20 years, and salaries and career prospects in the industry are excellent.

Why should I choose this course?

We are the only University in the UK which has integrated the industry-standard aircraft maintenance qualification (“EASA Part 66”) with a BSc(Hons) Engineering degree.  You will have a University experience from day one, and will be taught in state-of-the-art dedicated facilities at the Treforest campus.  You will be taught by academic staff who have industrial experience of aircraft maintenance, and have been approved by EASA, the CAA and British Airways Engineering.

Aircraft Maintenance training in the UK is regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and a training provider must have a licence (“EASA Part 147”) from the CAA in order to offer this training.  Our course is offered under an extension of British Airways’ training licence, so you follow the same modules as their own staff.  Our facilities are fully approved by the CAA and British Airways Engineering to their exacting standards.

Aircraft maintenance courses combine rigorous academic study with the practical and management skills required for a successful career in the aviation sector.  Salaries are good, and the industry is expected to grow in the UK and globally (particularly in the Middle East and Asia).  Job prospects for graduates are excellent.

We have excellent facilities which set a benchmark for aircraft maintenance training in the UK.  For more details see the “Facilities” section below.

What are the job prospects in aircraft maintenance engineering?

100% of Glamorgan’s aerospace (and aircraft maintenance engineering) graduates were in employment or further study six months after graduation (Graduate Destination Survey, 2011).
Job prospects in international aviation are excellent.  According to a recent survey by ADS[i] the UK Aerospace Industry supports 200,000 direct jobs and 500,000 indirectly.  Overall employment levels increased by 4.3% in 2011 over those in 2010, and the gross median salary in the aerospace industry increased by 2.7%.  The average annual salary for aerospace employees in 2010 was £34,834, compared to £25,912 for the UK as a whole.

Having the degree as well as the practical training enhances your employment prospects, as you will be able to progress more rapidly within the industry.  Also according to the survey from ADS, graduates, engineers, and managers increased their share of the UK’s aviation workforce from 36% in 2010 to 39% in 2011[ii].

What does your partnership with British Airways mean for me?

British Airways chose the University of Glamorgan as their sole university partner for aircraft maintenance training because of our commitment to setting up industry-standard facilities and our strong background in aircraft maintenance engineering.  Our students gain several advantages from the Partnership:The training is provided under the licence of British Airways Engineering, so you are taught the practical elements in exactly the same way as BA would train its own staff.

Upon successful completion of the assessments you will get a certificate from BA (as well as a degree certificate) which shows that you have completed the taught and practical elements of the training to the standards of British Airways Engineering, and this certificate will be recognised by the aviation industry around the world.

British Airways Engineering will offer places at their facilities to up to 50 of our students each year to complete the practical tasks and hands-on hours, which you need to complete in order to satisfy the basic training requirements of EASA and the CAA as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.

Senior staff from BA Engineering will provide guest lectures on the course, giving you expert insight to the challenges of the modern aviation industry.

What about on-the-job training?
You will be able to complete a total of twelve weeks of “on-the-job” training with British Airways during the summer periods of the second and third years of your degree course.   There will be an additional charge for this, although this is not required for successful completion of the degree.
How many hours per week will I study?
The course has a high number of contact hours, approximately 30 hours per week throughout the whole academic year from September to June.  The course complies with the EASA requirement that you complete a minimum of 2,400 hours of training over the three years of the degree.  Class sizes are also regulated by EASA and must not exceed 28 students per class.
What modules will I study?
The content of the “EASA Modules” is specified by EASA.  “Non-EASA Modules” are part of the university curriculum and contribute to the award of the BSc(Hons) degree.  You will study modules worth 120 credits in each year, and 360 credits in total for the BSc(Hons) degree.
Year 1
EASA Module
Professional Practice for Engineers (non-EASA)
Analytical Methods for Engineers
Electronic Fundamentals
Electrical Fundamentals
Basic Aerodynamics
Human Factors
Aviation Legislation
Year 2
Maintenance Practices
Engineering Management & Business Constraints (non-EASA)
Instrumentation Systems
Materials & Hardware
Year 3
Final Year Project (BSc) (non-EASA)
Engineering Project Management & Business Planning (non-EASA)
Project Research Methodology (non-EASA)
Gas Turbine Engine
Aerodynamics of Flight
Aircraft Structures & Systems

What will I receive after I graduate if I pass all my exams?
There are three components to this:
                A BSc(Hons) degree in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering
A certificate from British Airways indicating that you have passed the EASA modules under BA’s licence and are therefore qualified in the same way on those modules as a member of BA’s staff.
A minimum of 2,400 hours of basic aircraft maintenance training.
Is this sufficient for me to work as an aircraft maintenance engineer?
To be fully qualified as an aircraft maintenance engineer to work on live aircraft you must have a professional licence issued by the CAA.  “Licence B 1.1” is the basic licence for the mechanical and structural systems of turbine aircraft.  “Licence B2” is the basic licence for aircraft avionics.
Upon successful completion of the EASA examinations, individuals normally need three years of practical experience in an approved “EASA Part 145” maintenance organisation before you will be compliant with the EASA requirements for the award of a basic licence in aircraft maintenance engineering, either B1.1 or B2. Graduates of this BSc (Hons) will only need two years of further practical experience.

Since 2010 we have invested approximately £2m in the facilities for this course.
Aerospace Centre
This facility houses a Jetstream 31 Twin Turboprop Aircraft fitted with a 19-passenger configuration. It is equipped with Honeywell TPE331 Engines and Rockwell-Collins Proline II Avionics. It is equipped with all the general and specialist aircraft tools in order to carry out the necessary practical tasks required by the CAA.
EASA Approved Suite of Practical Training Facilities
Training and practical workshops and laboratories are provided for the instruction and assessment of practical skills. Each area is equipped with a range of tools and equipment to facilitate the instruction of either mechanical or avionic practical tasks as required by the CAA. The University has a fitting and structural repair workshop, a dedicated composite fabrication and repair workshop, and two dedicated electrical and avionic laboratories.
In addition to the dedicated aircraft maintenance facilities, the department also has a range of other laboratories to support the delivery of the course. These include the following.
Gas Turbine Simulator – GT185
The TQ two-shaft gas turbine has a single-shaft main turbine with an associated compressor. It has a second, free, turbine to absorb energy from the hot gas exhaust. This system has its own software that allows students to display and collect real-time data and test information.
Merlin MP521 Flight Simulator
This is a full motion, three axes, single-seater flight simulator that may be programmed for several aircraft types from the Airbus A380 to the smallest Cessna 150.
Wind tunnel
Students have access to a sub-sonic Wind Tunnel that may be used for basic aerodynamic instruction, testing and demonstrations on various aerofoil shapes and configurations.

What is EASA?

EASA is the European Aviation Safety Agency which promotes safety and environmental standards in aviation across the EU and in some other countries.  A training provider must have a licence under “EASA Part 147” and aircraft maintenance engineers must have their own licences under “EASA Part 66” before they can work on aircraft.  An organisation, such as an airline, which maintains aircraft, must have an “EASA Part 145” licence.  See for more details.

What is the CAA?
In the UK, the EASA regulations are implemented and monitored by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).  For more details see
