This course has successfully run for many years on behalf of REME (SEAE Arborfield), as a pre-alignment or preparatory course to their in-house full Officers Long Aeronautical Engineering (OLAE) course. The main purpose of the pre-alignment course was to give non Aeronautical Engineering graduates a condensed version of some of the more relevant disciplines to put them on a more even footing with their colleagues. The subject content is broadly in line with that taught at equivalent UK MEng Aeronautical Engineering Degree level, and with a firm emphasis on Rotary-Wing Aircraft applications throughout. It is a fully-accredited M-Level module (25 credits).
The aim of this course is to provide a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles of several key aeronautical (mechanical-based) engineering subjects, primarily aligned towards rotary-wing aircraft applications.
A key development course to support the needs of the business.
Normally a 1st or 2nd class honours degree in engineering, science or mathematics or the professional equivalent. Students whose native language is not English must attain a minimum IELTS score of 7.
This course is suitable for the following type(s) of applicant.
Those seeking to broaden their knowledge of general aeronautical engineering and especially for those looking for more specialist information on rotary-wing aircraft technology and applications.
