Degree + ATPL    Degree + Self-Proposed TMA    

The Study Cycle aims to qualify and specialize future (or improve current) staff and technicians of companies and entities of the aviation sector, namely aeronautical maintenance, air transport and flight operations, in the framework of the performance of technical functions, auditing, flight control. airworthiness, technical direction and / or management.

The training provided is advanced (with a strong component in Engineering Sciences) and cross-sectional (related to aeronautical maintenance, airline pilot and flight operations) and aims to provide students with solid knowledge of the aircraft, its systems and components, as well as legal requirements necessary for commercial aviation activity. To this end, the course provides students with the necessary knowledge for effective and competent integration in the aviation sector and in particular aeronautical maintenance, flight operations and air transport in general.

PROFESSIONAL EXITS

This degree has a strong component in aeronautical science, notably in maintenance engineering, piloting and flight operations, providing future graduates with a wide range of aviation options. At the end of the course students will be properly trained to develop the skills acquired in the following areas:

  • Air Transport;
  • Aeronautical maintenance;
  • Airworthiness management;
  • Airport infrastructures;
  • Aeronautical authorities;
  • Formation;
  • Audit;
  • Investigation.

As the aviation industry is highly regulated, some specific activities will only be possible after obtaining the respective licensing and / or certifications defined by the aeronautical authorities, such as Airline Pilot, Certified Aircraft Maintenance Technician, Flight Instructor , Head of Operations and others. The degree in aeronautical sciences is an auxiliary means of preparation and acquisition of knowledge to obtain these certifications, which is granted exclusively to aeronautical entities.
