Course Information

This double degree program combines the Electronic Engineering major and Mechanical Engineering major from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (with additional specialisation in avionics) with the core requirements of the Bachelor of Aviation. Graduates will be qualified as an electronics engineer and will have completed all theory exams for the commercial pilots licence (CPL). Graduates who continue via Griffith's 1 year Graduate Diploma of Flight Management (domestic students only) will have completed their CPL and will also be qualified as a commercial pilot. International students may replace the Graduate Diploma of Flight Management with self-funded flight training.

The program also offers students the alternative of transferring across to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (1542) program prior to commencement of year 3 to complete the Electronic and UAV Engineering major in that program. Students choosing this option will obtain a UAV Pilot Licence and may obtain a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) with the addition of some self-funded flight training. Students also have the option of transferring to the Electronic Engineering major in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (1542).
