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 £184 000 start-up funding

foundation degrees
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.
foundation degrees14
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
aircraft engineering
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
how are easa part 66 category b and c licences obtained
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
