OR VET qualification
If you receive an OP 1-6 or equivalent and meet subject prerequisites, you are guaranteed a place in this program.
This double degree program combines the Electronic Engineering major from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (with additional specialisation in avionics) with the core requirements of the Bachelor of Aviation. Graduates will be qualified as an electronics engineer and will have completed all theory exams for the commercial pilots licence (CPL). Graduates who continue via Griffith's 1 year Graduate Diploma of Flight Management (domestic students only) will have completed their CPL and will also be qualified as a commercial pilot. International students may replace the Graduate Diploma of Flight Management with self-funded flight training.The program also offers students the alternative of transferring across to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (1542) program prior to commencement of year 3 to complete the Electronic and UAV Engineering major in that program. Students choosing this option will obtain a UAV Pilot Licence and may obtain a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) with the addition of some self-funded flight training. Students also have the option of transferring to the Electronic Engineering major in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (1542).
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Aviation is available full-time on-campus at Nathan.
From 2017, to be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
Graduates will have a dual career pathway: a more highly qualified commercial pilot in demand by airlines and aviation companies and a fully qualified electronics engineer with full flight knowledge and ability. The industry calls these graduates pilot engineers. These graduates will be responsible for the amazing advance in avionic technology and systems now found in aircraft, and on the ground. They will also be qualified to work in a wide range of electronic related industries. Graduates completing the add-on Graduate Diploma of Flight Management will also be qualified to be employed as a commercial pilot.
Accreditation at the level of professional engineer will be sought for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Aviation.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Aviation provides a pathway to the Graduate Diploma of Flight Management (4188).
