Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aircraft Engineering Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong
This programme aims to equip students with the professional knowledge and skills to design, propose solutions or make recommendation in the fields of aircraft maintenance and aircraft engineering. Modules specialised in aircraft engineering such as mechanics of flight, propeller, aircraft system design, gas turbine engine, flight stability and automatic control will be the emphases of the programme. Moreover, the programme will prepare students for taking the HKAR-66 Cat. B1.1 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Basic Licence Examination. The programme covers a broad range of professional knowledge including public health and safety, regulations, societal and environmental considerations. It also covers the provision of general education and work-integrated learning. Graduates from this programme will be professionally competent in the aircraft industry.
