Program Overview:

The Bachelor of Aviation (Management) provides the knowledge, skills for a career in aviation management, airline administration, airport or flight operations. Instead of flight training, the management stream provides a range of courses in management areas such as Operations Management, Aviation Economics, Law and Regulations, Airline Marketing and Safety.


While students interested in a flying career have the opportunity to apply for the Bachelor of Aviation (Flying/Pilot) specialisation, which incorporates flight training and is structured to enable students to train as commercial pilots.


Both specialisations provide an in-depth knowledge of a variety of key disciplines, such as aerodynamics, aircraft power plants and systems, meteorology, navigation, flight planning, computer controlled flight management systems, flight operation technology and crew resource management.


Career Prospect:

Hong Kong International Airport was the world’s third busiest airport in 2014 and eighth in both 2015 and 2016.  The completion of the Three Runway System is expected to create 123,000 direct jobs in 2030 to meet the demand. The closer and more connectivity between Hong Kong and cities in China under CEPA and the ”One Belt, One Road” Initiative also creates huge job opportunities in the aviation industry.
