Course information

This degree focuses on practical aviation industry operations, placing an emphasis on air transport management as a system of interrelated activities and relationships to ensure safety and security of passengers or goods, increasingly dependent on the critical analysis of complex data and information technology.

As such, we aim to provide a thorough understanding of the aviation industry – the rationales of airport operation management, airport planning and design, airline yield management, airline fleet planning, route management and scheduling, passenger and cargo operations, air transport safety, security and emergency planning, aircraft maintenance, airline strategy, finance and economics, sustainable development of air transport, as well as the real-life strategies for airlines and airport operators at corporate and business levels.

Year one:

The programme is structured to assimilate a variety of academic backgrounds, so the first year provides a basic grounding in all aspects of airport and airline business operations, including airline strategy, finance and economics. An understanding of business information technology and international business is provided as background.


  • Business Information Systems
  • Airline Strategy, Finance and Economics
  • Airport Operations and Air Transportation
  • Fundamentals of Aeronautical Engineering
  • Professional Development in Aviation Management
  • International Business and Information Management
Year two:

In the second year, you will focus on the key principles of airline operations, airport passenger and cargo operations, aviation safety, security and emergency planning and aircraft maintenance management, as well as their practical applications at an operations level within the context of various aviation organisations and institutes. The interdependence of the separate areas of air transport, airline terminal functions and logistics operations are explored to provide a depth of knowledge and practical skill in dealing with management problems.


  • Airline Marketing and Management
  • Global Logistics and Supply Chains
  • Aircraft Maintenance Management
  • Aviation Safety, Security and Emergency Planning
  • Airport Operations - Passenger, Cargo and Airfield
  • Operational Research for Aviation Management
Placement year:

Following your second year, you will have an option to apply for a one-year professional work placement or study abroad in a partner institution. Past students have undertaken placements at dozens of locations, such as TUI, PrivateFly, Birmingham Airport, Heathrow Airport, British Airways, Anna.aero, Airbus, Airbus Defence and Space and Star Alliance.

Final year:

During your final year, you will focus on a number of specialist aviation strategic areas, complemented by supporting subjects. At this stage, we take a strategic and international view of the aviation industry and its supply chain issues, investigating current and future issues. For example, in recent years, we have considered the huge impact of events, such as those recently caused by acts of terrorism, health scares and natural disasters, which airlines have no control over and yet which significantly impact upon them and their customers.
The skills of project management are taught and practised as part of a team, as well as within the context of individual research and development. We place particular emphasis on developing your skills in the use of IT systems, analytical techniques and the application of all taught aviation knowledge, which are progressively developed throughout your studies.
The course culminates with your individual research project. Past students have examined the sustainability of long-haul low-cost carriers, the rise and development of all-business-class airlines, and the usefulness nowadays of the in-flight safety demonstration.


  • Airline Operations and Scheduling
  • Aviation Strategy and Planning
  • Human Factors in Aviation
  • Project Management
  • Individual Project

On another occasion, they visited Montreal with hosted visits to Aéroports de Montreal, ACI (Airports Council International), Air Canada, Air Transat, Bombardier’s Challenger Facility, IATA, ICAO and Transport Canada together with a visit to the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.
