Course Information

This double degree program combines Australia's most highly awarded aviation program with practical skills in information technology to help you influence IT advances required for the continued safety and security of air travel today and tomorrow.

IT skills are crucial in the Aviation industry. This double degree program provides the pathway to a range of careers in aviation outside of flight crew roles.

Core courses introduce you to basic areas such as navigation, human factors, planning, information systems and programming as well as the sciences underpinning the theory and practice of aviation.

You'll also develop skills in collecting, storing and analysing large volumes of data as well as covering computationally intensive simulations of flight data on supercomputers, visual exploration of large data sets and informational retrieval and communication via the internet and data mining.

Our training and learning resources include flight simulators and technology systems based on current industry standards, plus you'll also undertake a practical work placement as part of your degree, so you'll graduate with the skills and practical experience to launch your career.

You also have the option to accelerate your studies by undertaking courses over three trimesters a year if you choose and there are a range of aviation or IT-related clubs you can join while studying to help you connect with other students and create valuable future industry networks.
