Bachelor of Engineering Technology
CQUniversity - Cairns

Course outline

This course prepares students for a versatile career in engineering as a specialist in technology. It is a versatile degree with options to major in traditional engineering disciplines or pursue a career as an aircraft maintenance engineer through the aircraft maintenance (avionics) major. Choosing the civil, electrical or mechanical majors allows students to build in-depth knowledge of engineering concepts and be highly trained in software, simulating modelling and the ability to assist engineers with the technology design and systems management in an engineering project. Students who study the aircraft maintenance engineering (avionics or mechanical) major, will complete the first 1.5 years on campus at Aviation Australia Brisbane campus. The final 1.5 years of aircraft maintenance (avionics or mechanical) major is available either on-campus and online. Students who successfully complete the first 1.5 years of aircraft maintenance engineering (avionics or mechanical) major will be eligible to receive the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approved Aviation Australia Diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (Avionics or Mechanical).
