Why choose Nilai University as your partner in offering this degree?

We are only interested in working with quality partners, Kingston University must be assured of the standards applied. We have already visited Nilai University three times and are very happy with what we have seen. There is a good match in terms of aircraft engineering subject areas.

The key factor is that Nilai University conducts its EASA exams through CAAi which makes us very confident in the standard of knowledge. In addition, the quality systems that Nilai University do have in place and its experience of working with a number of foreign universities made it particularly reassuring to us.

Please explain how this degree works?

Kingston University offers a three-year BSc (Hons) in Aircraft Engineering. Students do a two-year foundation degree at one of our five partner institutions in the UK and they do the final year at Kingston University.

Our Foundation degree is based on the EASA B licence syllabus which is very similar to Nilai U’s diploma programme. There are some differences between the programmes and we are introducing a bridging module to cover these aspects.

So Nilai University’s Diploma programme plus the bridging module is equivalent to Kingston University’s Foundation programme. Students then only need to do a one-year top up to get the degree. According to the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) specifications, one year of post diploma study is equivalent to an Advanced Diploma.

But in the UK context, the Advanced Diploma is equivalent Honours degree. This means graduates will receive a both an advanced diploma from Nilai U and a BSc (Hons) in Aircraft Engineering from Kingston University. And if students

successfully complete the programme with a second class honours, they can progress on to post-graduate studies in the UK.

Can a student proceed to do this Degree in Aircraft Engineering if s/he has completed a Diploma in a different

engineering field?

No. this is because the articulation agreement between Nilai U and Kingston University requires a match of curriculum.

Both Nilai University’s diploma and Kingston’s Foundation

programme in this field are based on part 66 of EASA syllabus.

Can Nilai U students opt to finish their degree in the UK after completing Nilai U’s Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering?

The top up degree is available to those who have completed Nilai University’s Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and the bridging modules. To go to the UK, a student will need to complete the bridging modules and also pass an English proficiency test as well. It’s a lot less expensive to complete the degree programme at Nilai U.

If someone wanted the experience of doing one year in the UK, the more sensible option would be to complete the honours degree at Nilai University then proceed to do the MSc in Aircraft Engineering at Kingston University.

In your opinion, how will students benefit by continuing their studies to degree level?

The basic EASA diploma is about getting the licence which is a key qualification which allows the person to sign off on aircraft worthiness. This top up degree is more to move people on to supervisory roles within the industry. It is about

managing a team and having the ability to deal with uncertain issues. Initially, employers will be keen to know if a person has gotten their EASA licence. But they will also need people to lead the team and the degree holder will come across as more confident and knowledgeable. Doing a degree is with long term career options and rewards in mind.

A UK degree is internationally-recognised and this allows the person to move around easier. It must be said, there’s not a lot of point in getting the degree if there is no intention of getting the EASA licence.

How a person sequence that is up to them. For many people, it’s easier to get the education done and then move towards getting the experience necessary for the licence. It is quite hard to come back and do a degree after having worked for a few years.

What would you say to prospective

students and their parents about joining this field?

The aircraft maintenance industry is highly regulated. The number of people required can be predicted quite easily and there is solid evidence to show that the demand is going to keep growing.

This is also a highly rewarding field to be in. a person is essentially going to be responsible for aircraft worth hundreds of millions of dollars and whether or not it leaves the ground.

Most importantly, it is about the safety of the persons who will be on the flight. It can be a very lucrative career. Having a degree will certainly help a person better perform the job and ensure upwards mobility.
