Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME)

The  Department of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is a long established Part 147  approved Training School recognised by both Qatar Civil Aviation Authority  (QCAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The Department has  designed training courses that meet the requirements of the industry to  prepare students to enter the world of aviation maintenance and are based on  the EASA Part 66 syllabi leading to a Higher National Diploma in Aviation  Engineering. The Department equips students with the required knowledge and  skills to perform various functions of an A License Mechanic orB Licenced  Engineer in an aircraft maintenance organisation such as Qatar Airways.

The  department has also developed a new Air Transport Safety Electronics  Personnel (ATSEP) course to prepare graduates to work as Airport technicians  working on the various equipment essential at an airport such as Instrument  Landing Systems,Radar and Radios.

The  department is equipped with a vast array of equipment to ensure students are  familiar with all the systems and equipment of a modern airliner. Our  mechanical workshops are superbly equipped and enable students to learn the  hand skills necessary to move seamlessly into an aircraft maintenance  facility and work alongside experienced engineers as they work towards  gaining their licence.

The  electrical workshop is state of the art and adjoins one of the best equipped  avionics workshops available. In these workshops students learn all about  electrical fundamentals, diodes and transistors before moving to advanced  electronics and studying Autopilot, Navigation Aids and glass cockpit  instrumentation.

Airside  the department has a fully functioning Falcon 20 regional jet and a Piper  Seneca. Supporting these aircraft are a large assortment of training aids and  a ground running PT6 Turbo Prop engine. The Academy also has an agreement  with Qatar Airways so that the final 10 weeks of the course is spent in the  Qatar Airways engineering hangars working in a live aircraft environment to  consolidate the training and ensure graduates are fully prepared for the work  place when they leave.

The  two and three months Higher Diploma course is built into a program that is  aimed at providing students with classroom and practical environment. In fact  under the EASA Part 66 requirements approximately 40% of the course is based  around practical training outside the classroom environment. As well as  covering the basic modules of Maths, Physics,Electrical and Electronics  Fundamentals the course also covers in depth subjects such as: Aircraft  Systems, Gas Turbine Engines, Aviation Legislation, Human Factors and  Maintenance Practices.

For the  ATSEP course the students will study in depth the principles of Radar, Radio,  Navigation Aids, and Safety Management Systems. This course also contains a  substantial amount of practical training in a lab/workshop environment.

Applicants  for Aircraft and ATSEP studies must have a strong foundation in Mathematics  and Physics which are also part of the curriculum.
