Introduction to Aviation management

Become part of the rapidly growing aviation industry. Adopt a practical and industry-focused approach to learning the science and theory of flight. Use your aviation course as a pathway to a career in the commercial or passenger airline industry or with government organisations, like the Australian Defence Force and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).

Begin working towards a career as a pilot, or answer the challenge of changing aviation management practices. Work in areas as diverse as maintenance and repair, air traffic, human resources, airport or airline operations, tourism or rural farming operations.
