The Aviation Academy offers honours programmes for excellent students who seek for a more challenging final year. An honours programme at the Aviation Academy is about 25% more difficult than other fourth year study programmes, and is open to a maximum of only 15 students each year.
In order to start an honours programme, you will have to be selected through an application and assessment process. In order to complete the programme, you will have to be dedicated to and prepared for hard work, sometimes stretching beyond regular university hours. In return you will receive the opportunity to boost your personal development as aviation professional by means of taking on challenging subjects and projects, and by working closely with a small group of highly motivated students. There are two honours programmes, starting in September each year.
The programme is taught in English and fully focuses on the competence development of students. After this programme you will write your graduation thesis.This program focuses on the following focal areas in the first half year:
Within this honours programme you develop your research abilities and strengthen your theoretical knowlegde on the topics of the focal areas.
Within this international graduation program of half a year you learn how to manage airports and airlines and everything coming with it. The programme is taught in English and fully focuses on the competence development of students. After this programme you will write your graduation thesis.
Once you have finished the full programme, including graduation, you'll be an attractive candidate for airports, airlines, government and other organisations.
These programmes are developed especially for those who want to go that one extra mile, expand their knowledge and are seeking for an extra challenge. The programmes deviate from the general fourth year curriculum and gives you extra opportunities in gaining new knowlegde. This is, amongst others, taught by internal and external lecturers.
