Higher flying aviation graduates on the way
Published on 18 August, 2011
CQUniversity is planning a new aviation program that will provide students with flight training, complementing the aviation industry fundamentals taught through the existing Bachelor of Aviation degree...
This program will be based at Bundaberg Campus from 2012 and may also become available via distance education.
The proposed Associate Degree in Aviation will equip graduates to work in a range of operational and management positions within the aviation, aerospace and information technology industries.
Students will be introduced to recreational flying and will complete 20 hours of flight training throughout this program, guided by flight instructors as they apply relevant theory they have learnt.
Graduates from the two-year Associate Degree will be able to continue into the Bachelor of Aviation Technology degree program and will be able to apply for a recreational aviation licence.
This program is supported by the extensive experience of the head of the Aviation program Ron Bishop, a former military aircrew instructor.
CQUniversity's new Aviation offerings and many other degrees will be showcased during the Rockhampton Campus Open Day. This free event will be open to all prospective students and families keen to visit the campus on Sunday August 28. LINK for more Open Day details
