About this course

This course, delivered by Cranfield University, 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).

What you will learn

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.

How this course will help your career

A key development course to support the needs of the business.
