Course Summary

Who is it for?

The MSc in Air Safety Management programme is for those who have been working within the aviation industry (for at least two years), and have a primary interest in its safety. Current students include pilots, air traffic controllers, maintenance staff, engineers and the majority have a license/professional education. We also welcome students with a military background. This Air Safety Management MSc programme is tailored towards those working who cannot attend regular university schedules and is a fantastic choice for people looking to further their careers whilst continuing to work. The Masters boasts accreditation by the Royal Aeronautical Society.

The Air Safety Management postgraduate degree is compatible with The MoD's Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Service (ELCAS) - an initiative to promote lifelong learning amongst members of the UK Armed Forces. If you are/have been a member of the UK Armed Forces, you could be entitled to financial support to take this course.

Objectives:

Airlines, airports and other aviation companies are mostly led by license holders, safety officers, pilots, aircraft engineers, air traffic controllers, dispatchers and many more. This means the demand for management knowledge is growing. Our programme gives students the opportunity to freshen their knowledge, learn the latest management techniques and build a lifelong network of peers.

With unexpected events affecting the aviation industry as well as increased competition and technological and regulatory changes, every organisation needs a core of up-to-date safety and risk managers ready to succeed into leadership positions.

The programme is designed to deliver individual success. First initiated by the Honourable Company of Airline Pilots (HCAP) to increase the career opportunities of aircrew, today the programme is recognised as a key resource within the aviation safety industry and as a benchmark for innovation.

This programme is approved by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS). This means the course is recognised by the aviation industry across the world.

Career prospects:

This is a professional programme recognised by the aviation industry and approved by the Royal Aeronautical Society.

Airlines are increasingly expecting their managers to study the MSc from City, University of London, and our alumni network includes high-ranking individuals including safety managers, training captains, quality managers, flight safety officers, safety inspectors, safety consultants and accident investigators in civil aviation authorities, airlines and with other aircraft operators and defence forces worldwide.
