Overview

The aviation industry is a complex socio-technical system which relies on the management of
its intricate interactive components and the mitigation of risk to preserve safety. The diverse
and complex nature of the industry, its unique challenges, and its practitioner focused
orientation, lends itself to significant opportunity for research, particularly in the area of the
human and human-technical components of the aviation system. This course provides
students with an overview of a wide range of well-established quantitative, qualitative and
mixed research methods.

The course aims to provide students with the abilities to enable them to conduct research in the aviation domain. It provides an introduction to research methodologies, research proposals, and the fundamentals of conducting a research project, which will enable them to conduct research in later academic courses and within the aviation industry. An emphasis is placed on the evaluation and implementation of quality research design and methods.
