The Master of Engineering (Airworthiness) consists of 96 credit points.
The program includes the Master's Minor Research Project which constitutes a capstone experience. This is relevant to the different airworthiness engineering and management aspects taught during the program. It also provides realistic work situations either in an industry project environment or in a simulated industry setting with operational constraints. In either case, you'll be jointly supervised by an academic and/or a qualified industry professional investigating and researching problems in airworthiness engineering within the civil/defence domain.
As part of your studies you will complete the following core courses:
- Airworthiness Management Frameworks
This course introduces you to the different aspects of initial and continuing airworthiness management frameworks, both in the operational and technical field. You will examine different legislation, guidelines and technical manuals relating to airworthiness as commonly used in both civil organisations (ICAO, EASA, FAA, CASA, etc.) and defence (US Defence Forces, UK MAA, EDA MAWA Forum, ADF AA, etc). You will learn how to apply technical airworthiness management frameworks and how to implement airworthiness assurance functions.
- Engineering Risk Management in Aviation
You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the risk management process and its application to the aviation environment. You will learn to apply the risk management process and assessment tools to examples and case studies set in an aviation context.
- Aviation Safety Systems
This course provides you with an understanding of safety management systems (SMS), addressing the fundamental components stipulated in the ICAO framework. You will gain an insight into key areas that are relevant for the implementation of a safety program in the context of small and large organisations.
- Aircraft Certification
This course covers the different aspects involved in aircraft and aeronautical program certification. You will examine the different regulatory requirements in civil and military aviation with particular focus on certification regulatory requirements.
- Aircraft Maintenance
You will cover key areas of study including aircraft maintenance concepts, aircraft maintenance in practice, continuing airworthiness regulations, maintenance programs and planning and ageing aircraft.
- Master's Minor Research Project
The course involves a major experimental, computational and/or analytical research project. You will work on your project individually or in small groups. The course requires you to demonstrate in-depth technical and research skills. The project can be completed in conjunction with industry or in a simulated engineering work environment.
You will also be required to complete one of the following:
- Human Factors in Aviation Safety
- Aircraft Structural Integrity
