Course outline

This double degree combines Australia’s most highly awarded aviation program with practical skills in information technology, providing a pathway to a range of careers in aviation outside of flight-crew roles. Core courses introduce you to navigation, human factors, planning, information systems and programming, as well as the sciences underpinning the theory and practice of aviation. You’ll also develop skills in collecting, storing and analysing large volumes of data, covering simulations of flight data on supercomputers, visual exploration of large data sets, and informational retrieval and communication via the internet and data mining. Training and learning resources include our flight procedures lab and technology systems based on current industry standards. You’ll also undertake a practical work placement as part of your degree, and there is a range of aviation or IT-related clubs you can join to help you connect with other students and create valuable industry networks.
