Intrigued by how aviation makes the world feel smaller and brings people together, Husam Kharoufah is studying the Bachelor of Applied Science (Aviation).
Bachelor of Applied Science (Aviation)
The emphasis on industry involvement and advanced teaching methods made the program stand out from those at other universities.
Having been fortunate to travel the world as a child and teenager, I was amazed by how aviation has made the world a smaller place and fascinated by how it unites people from different nations and cultures.
I decided to study aviation at RMIT because it is well-known for the quality of its programs and has a fantastic global reputation. The emphasis on industry involvement, made the program stand out from those at other universities. There are also great opportunities to become involved in a range of activities and groups in a positive, welcoming environment.
The highlight of my studies was an international summer program at Korea Aerospace University, South Korea. This was an unforgettable experience. We had the chance to visit Korean Air headquarters, maintenance hangars at Gimpo International Airport, attend a conference for aviation professionals and go on a tour of the Incheon International Airport.
I’m currently working in the customer care department of Melbourne Airport. It’s a great opportunity to make connections in the aviation industry and use some of the skills I’ve learnt during my course.
My dream is to be one of the pioneers and help establish the aviation industry in my home country, Palestine. I want to use my knowledge and skills to help my nation in building airports and establishing airlines. This will enhance the Palestinian economy and provide many people with job opportunities.
