Bachelor of Technology (Aeronautical)
Intended for students who have an interest in aviation, aeronautics and flying and wish to have the option of expanding their studies into a pathway towards becoming an accredited professional in an engineering qualification.
Aeronautical technology deals with the engineering aspects of aviation, including aviation system design, aircraft manufacturing and aircraft operation. Areas of study within the course include a foundation in physics and mathematics along with engineering mechanics, computer aided design, engineering materials and thermodynamics and fluids. Specialised aeronautical subjects are studied concurrently and include aircraft systems and structures, aircraft propulsion and aerodynamics. Students will also gain an understanding of the operation and performance of aircraft from the point-of-view of the pilot.
The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to the aviation industry and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project work. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, students will graduate with strong analytical skills and the ability to contribute to complex projects.
Aeronautical Technologist, Mechanical Technologist
Students graduating from this course will be guaranteed a place in the School's accredited Master of Engineering course (specialising in either Mechanical or Civil Engineering), enabling them to achieve professional engineer status after a further two years of study.
While studying the Bachelor of Technology (Aeronautical) students have the option to study the Graduate Diploma (Flying) concurrently in order to achieve a Commercial Pilots Licence. The cost of the pilot training can be supported through the FEE-HELP loan system for successful applicants into this course.
This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
