The Institute of Aerospace Technologies at the University of Malta is launching a Higher Diploma in Aviation which starts this October. This course is intended for ab-initio and professional pilots who seek to develop or strengthen their career path by following an MQF Level 5 University programme that will provide them with an excellent balance between theoretical understanding and technical insight into the operational environment of the modern pilot.  This approach will afford students a deeper insight into their profession, allowing them to take better decisions in the field whilst also giving them a competitive advantage in their career.

Delivered by experts in their respective fields, the course will provide an introduction to the fundamental engineering principles associated with aviation and then builds on this to address, with the academic rigour of a higher diploma, the technical and operational aspects associated with flying.  Candidates will be exposed to various areas including principles of flight, aircraft structures, automation, air traffic management and human factors. The diploma is intended to complement (and give credit to) the ground instruction and flying training provided by flying schools leading to EASA Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL), Multi-crew Pilot Licence (MPL) or equivalent, providing a more professional understanding and insight into the technical and operational matters associated with flying modern large transport aircraft.

Running on a part-time day-course basis over two years, the Higher Diploma in Aviation can be followed by student pilots in parallel with their pilot training courses as well as by licenced pilots who are already flying operationally. Following the diploma, students can continue their studies to degree level by applying for a 2-year part-time Bachelor’s degree programme in Air Transport that is planned for launch by October 2018.
