Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Aviation

Griffith University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00233E

This double degree gives you two clear career pathways. As a graduate, you may choose to be a qualified commercial pilot with engineering qualifications, knowing that airlines prefer their pilots to have an engineering qualification. Or, you could choose to be an engineer with flight qualifications, recognising that engineering companies building aircraft or aviation systems prefer flight-qualified engineers. To become flight-qualified, you must complete the Graduate Diploma of Flight Management (GDFM). It's achievable through this unique degree that combines the Electronic Engineering or Mechanical Engineering major in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) with the core requirements of the Bachelor of Aviation, which includes the theoretical component of flight training.Industry and expert connectionsIn aviation and engineering, building a professional network and proving your competency in the workplace is a crucial first step in your career. At Griffith, our aviation and engineering schools are well-connected with industry, so we can help our students get a foot in the door through work-integrated learning. You'll undertake a full trimester (full-time) engineering placement with a company in the aviation space, working on a live engineering project that will allow you to put your new knowledge into practice working within a high-achieving, multi-disciplinary team. That's in addition to the many opportunities we provide our students each year to participate in field trips to engineering companies, where you can meet experienced professionals and be inspired. Graduate outcomesAs a graduate, you'll be qualified as an electronics or mechanical engineer and will have completed the full theory component for your commercial pilot's licence. This is an amazing opportunity to pursue a career as a pilot through further training or to become a highly qualified engineer in the aviation industry. MajorsEngineering Electronic Engineering Mechanical Engineering FlexibilityTailor your timetable - Even if you study full-time on-campus, you may still be able to customise your degree to suit your needs. From a range of tutorial times to online access to lectures and other course material, we're here to help you fit study in with your work and life commitments.Global mobilityStudents may be eligible to do an international field trip, organised by the academic staff. This may count towards a component of the degree, depending on its structure.
