Description

The Master of Aviation Management (Program Code 12378) is a Level 9 AQF compliant Masters Coursework program and is available for students who commence their studies in 2015.

The Master of Aviation Management provides flexible delivery for distance learning in the areas of aviation human factors and management. It has been developed in response to a recognised need in the aviation industry. The program combines topics from aviation human factors and management and can be adapted to accommodate specific areas of interest of students from diverse backgrounds. Applications are encouraged from all areas of the industry, especially flight crew, cabin crew, maintenance crew, ground crew, administration, military and government authorities.

Why study with us?

The Master of Aviation Management is a unique program that can be adapted to accommodate your specific areas of interest. This degree will give you a distinctive insight into contemporary issues in aviation by combining human factors and management skills for application to the demands of management in the aviation industry. This applied program will provide you with industry-relevant skills and knowledge that can open up further management career options within the aeronautical industry.

Career Opportunities

The understanding and insight you gain in this program will benefit you as it has done many others, including commercial and military pilots, air traffic controllers and maintenance engineers. As well as assisting you to pursue your chosen career route, you’ll find this qualification eases the transition between specialties, for example in moving from the military to government or consultation activities, or moving between commercial aviation organisations.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.
