An Aircraft Maintenance Engineer is responsible for the maintenance, repair and the overhaul of an aircraft. Graduates who have completed the necessary work experience (usually 3-5 years) and obtained their European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) licence will be qualified to sign off on the airworthiness of an aircraft. Employment opportunities will mostly be with airlines and MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) centres. Graduates with the EASA License can earn up to RM8,000 a month while those without earn about RM2,000.

Other employment opportunities may arise from aerospace parts manufacturers and the civil service or they can find work as aircraft turbine engine inspectors or process engineers.

  2. I want to study for aircraft engineering course. Which college should I study and how to apply for it?


  4. Hi sir/mam….let say i graduate diploma in aircraft then can i apply work at singapura airlines….can get the work??and how about the salery

  5. Although I am having SPM this month, I am just a little bit curious on what to do after. I am also asking on behalf of a few friends.
    Do they offer scholarships or we have to pay for ourselves? After the internship for 6 months, where can we work?
    I read online, something called DILOG, does it have any relation to Nilai?

    1. If you go for government universities then it would be cheaper. Private universities you would have to pay more. Scholarships are offered to students who do well in their results. There are many companies and airlines that you can work in upon graduation. I don’t think DILOG has any relation to Nilai. For more details on the courses at Nilai, you may email me at with your full name and mobile number. For your friends, include their full names, mobile numbers and emails as well.
