1 Developing a programme of Higher Education for Licensed Aircraft Engineers Dr. Peter Barrington FACULTY OF ENGINEERING KINGSTON UNIVERSITY

2 Outline Kingston University Consortium Review of Programmes Experience

3 Kingston University Kingston University is the largest higher education institution in South West London, with 20,000students

4 Faculty of Engineering
104 Year history (Kingston Technical College) 58 full time academic staff 20 Technical staff 15 Administrative staff 1000 students in Kingston Extensive Collaborative Provision (1000 students off site) National & international reputation for excellence Multi-level course portfolio

5 The Consortium Now comprises: 350 students currently on course
Kingston University KLM UK Engineering City of Bristol College Newcastle Aviation Academy Asian Aviation Centre Sri Lanka British Airways 350 students currently on course

6 Aircraft Engineering FD
The result of a consortium bid to run a pilot Foundation Degree in late 2000: The consortium comprised: Kingston University KLM UK Engineering 53 bids to run Foundation Degree’s were submitted from across UK The consortium was placed 2nd and awarded £ start-up funding

7 KLM Uk Engineering Norwich
3 FD intakes per year – 2 jointly presented with Kingston University 1 Introductory Year Zero intake per year

8 Asian Aviation Centre Sri Lanka
1 FD intake per year Own Introductory Year Zero course Students complete top-up at Kingston

9 Newcastle Aviation Academy Newcastle Airport
2 FD intakes per year Plans to expand the academy

10 City of Bristol College
1 FD intake per year Two Introductory Year intakes per year EASA147 Approved Partner in NAA project

11 British Airways Heathrow Airport
1 FD intake per year started in 2005

12 Aircraft Engineering Programmes
Year 0 Foundation Degree BEng Aircraft Engineering (Top up) MSc Aircraft Engineering

13 Foundation Degrees Are intermediate level higher education qualifications Integrate academic and work-based learning through close collaboration between employers, HE and FE Offer a new route into and through HE. Intended to reduce the barriers to learning.

14 Foundation Degrees Vocational qualifications
Offer recognition of relevant prior learning and experience (APL - APEL) Distinctive because they require the active involvement of employers & employer bodies in their: Design Implementation Review

15 Aircraft Engineering Provides very much more because the FD is:
based on EASA Pt66 syllabus EASA Pt147 approved under KLM’s and CoBC’s approvals Gives students the opportunity to Gain an internationally recognised vocational qualification - Pt66 Licence Reduces practical experience requirements from 5 to 2 years

16 How are EASA Part 66 category B and C Licences obtained?
How do Aircraft Engineering courses fit in with EASA Licensing ? Join the industry Study for the EASA Part 66 knowledge examinations Take examinations through the CAA (12-13 examinations) Complete 5 years maintenance experience The Foundation Degree 1 year full-time honours course may be completed here Apply to the CAA for a category C Licence Apply to the CAA for a category B Licence Complete 3 years as a B Licensed certifying engineer Complete an EASA Approved Training Course Take the EASA Part 66 examinations as part of the course Complete 2 years maintenance experience TWO BASIC WAYS TO OBTAIN JAR 66 LICENCE FIRST IS TO PASS 12/13 MODULE EXAMS AND 5 YEARS PRACTICAL TRAINING LOTS OF OTHER OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE (SUCH AS ARMED FORCES AIRCRAFT EXPERIENCE) AND OTHER MECHANICAL TRAING. SECOND IS TO DO AN APPROVED BASIC TRAINING COURSE INCLUDING ALL EXAMINATIONS AND THEN TWO YEARS PRACTICAL LIVE AIRCRAFT EXPERIENCE. THIS IS THE OPTION THIS COURSE COVERS. TWO TYPES OF ASSESSMENT: - DEGREE - JAR - FAILING ONE HONOURS TOP-UP - DIRECTLY AFTER FD - AT ANY TIME AFTER HOPED THAT STUDENTS WILL COMPLETE D IT WHILST GAINING WORK EXP AFTER FOUR YEAR - BENG(HONS) AND B1 LICENCE Or as a 2 year part-time course at any time after completion of the FD

AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING BEng(Hons) Professional Engineer status Qualified EASA C Licence Holder 3 years maintenance experience including 6 months practical 3 years experience as Category B1/B2 Certifier BEng(Hons) Professional Engineer Status Explain main FD / B Licence route displayed on slide. Click - 3 years as certifying staff qualifies the engineer for the C Licence. Click - also possible for 3 year students to follow fast track direct to C Licence. Click - explain purpose of introductory year zero. Click - explain that these students can drop out and become A licensed engineers. Click - explain the options A licensed engineers have. Click - explain the route for engineers who already hold a B1, B2 or equivalent licence. Entry Requirements: Min 140 ‘A’ Level points Or equivalent B1 / B2 Licensed Engineer BEng(Hons) Top-up 1yr FT - 2 yrs PT EASA C Licence Qualified EASA B Licence Holder BEng(Hons) and Professional Engineer status Foundation Degree 2 years FT EASA B Licence 2 years aircraft maintenance experience Min 18 years Introductory Year 0 1 year FT EASA A Licence 1 years maintenance experience Qualified EASA A Licence Holder Experience and other or self training Qualified EASA B Licence Holder

Modules shown are for B1 Airframe and Engines course. The modules highlighted in mauve are B1 specific and would be replaced with avionic modules on the B2 course. The remainder of the modules are common to both B1 and B2, although there are some minor level differences which need to be noted by reference to JAR-66 It is anticipated that in the majority of cases the material will be taught to the higher level. The major differences having already been resolved by the use of 5 trade specific modules.
