Bachelor of Aeronautical Engineering Technology (Aircraft Maintenance) (Honours) [BDM]

The faculty is committed to produce excellent graduates that suitable for market needs, locally and globally. The undergraduate programme has been developed in response to the requirements of fast evolving industry in aeronautical engineering. The programmes are designed with an emphasis on practical application that would enable students to apply new knowledge in the real-world. It concentrates on the aeronautical engineering technology to provide the substantial knowledge and skills for future engineers in related areas and applications. The programme goes through a periodical review of every 2 years to ensure the continual suitability and relevance to the need of the market industry.

The programmes have been practiced with the Outcome Based Education (OBE) philosophy. This is to ensure the graduates are not only equipped with sufficient engineering knowledge, but also strengthening their individual soft-skills. In order to produce competent, technically skillful, and innovative graduates, the program is designed to have a combination of engineering degree components and professional licensing components. For the engineering degree components, the offered courses cover all areas under aeronautical engineering technology such as aerodynamics, aircraft structure and design, propulsion, aircraft systems and control, and material technology. These courses are conducted through lectures, tutorials, laboratory experiments, bachelor degree project, workshop practices, and industrial training, which are all accredited by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).

The professional licensing components are all required courses for aircraft maintenance engineer. For these professional licensing components, students will go through structured programs that are authorized by the Department of Civil Aviation Malaysia (DCAM). The programs contain both theoretical and practical aspects that finally enable students to obtain Aircraft Maintenance Engineer License (AMEL LWTR). The tremendous feature in these programs which combines aeronautical engineering degree and professional licensing is the completion will only take 4 years.
