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 Questions

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

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: 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 Degrees 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 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 Foundation Degrees

15 Aircraft Engineering Provides very much more because the FD is: based on EASA Pt66 syllabus EASA Pt147 approved under KLMs and CoBCs 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? Join the industry Study for the EASA Part 66 knowledge examinations Take examinations through the CAA (12-13 examinations) Complete 5 years maintenance experience Apply to the CAA for a category B Licence Complete an EASA Approved Training Course Take the EASA Part 66 examinations as part of the course Complete 2 years maintenance experience Complete 3 years as a B Licensed certifying engineer Apply to the CAA for a category C Licence How do Aircraft Engineering courses fit in with EASA Licensing ? The Foundation Degree 1 year full-time honours course may be completed here Or as a 2 year part-time course at any time after completion of the FD

17 Introductory Year 0 1 year FT EASA A Licence Foundation Degree 2 years FT EASA B Licence Min 18 years Qualified EASA B Licence Holder BEng(Hons) and Professional Engineer status 3 years experience as Category B1/B2 Certifier BEng(Hons) Top-up 1yr FT - 2 yrs PT EASA C Licence 2 years aircraft maintenance experience Qualified EASA A Licence Holder Experience and other or self training 1 years maintenance experience BEng(Hons) Professional Engineer status Qualified EASA C Licence Holder B1 / B2 Licensed Engineer BEng(Hons) Professional Engineer Status 3 years maintenance experience including 6 months practical Qualified EASA B Licence Holder ROUTES TO EASA Part 66 CATEGORY A, B AND C LICENSES AND AN HONOURS DEGREE IN AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING Entry Requirements: Min 140 A Level points Or equivalent
