This two year course is designed to meet the needs of industry by creating graduates that are ready with the operational and management skills required to succeed in the airline and airport industry.
The first year of the course focuses primarily on developing the fundamental skills and knowledge required in airline and airport organisations giving you an insight into the varied nature of the aviation industry. The second year builds on this underpinning knowledge to examine relevant theory and applies this in a management perspective.
This degree is delivered at the main Rye Hill Campus making use of the dedicated HE study spaces and well stocked Learning Resource Centre. Teaching also takes place at Newcastle College's world class purpose built Aviation Academy at Newcastle International Airport which houses two Jet Provost aircraft, a fuselage based classroom, a BAE Jetstream 31 aircraft and a fully functioning Boeing 737 aircraft.
You will be taught by staff who have extensive experience of airport operations, cabin crew operations, cabin crew training and aviation organisation management. You will be encouraged to apply for professional accreditation by staff who are active in both local and national networks. In addition you will be given the opportunity to participate in industrial visits to and complete work experience in a busy international airport.
