Give your career wings at UniSA
The University of South Australia’s Bachelor of Aviation program prepares graduates for careers in aviation and students have the choice of either a pilot or aviation management specialisation.
The Bachelor of Aviation (Management) provides the knowledge, skills for a successful career in aviation management, airline administration, airport or flight operations while students interested in a flying career have the opportunity to apply for the Bachelor of Aviation (Pilot) specialisation, which is complemented with flight training through the Graduate Diploma in Aviation for domestic students or through private flying lessons for international students.
With both specialisations, we emphasise hands-on, practical knowledge, with our students undertaking real-world assignments such as visits to various aviation and meteorological facilities. Both specialisations also provide an in depth knowledge of a variety of key disciplines, such as aerodynamics, aircraft power plants and systems, meteorology, navigation, flight planning, computer controlled flight management systems, flight operation technology and crew resource management.
The Bachelor of Aviation (Pilot) program is structured specifically to allow those wishing to become commercial pilots to undertake flight training in addition to their undergraduate degree. This is undertaken from the first year of the bachelor degree with a University of South Australia flight training partner.
