The aviation industry is in a major period of growth, with airline business and airports growing, the requirement for skilled aviation professionals both in the air and at the airports will continue to increase. Much of the rapid growth is in specific areas of the world including Asia and the Middle East; and graduates should consider seeking jobs in the International market to take full advantage of the growth in these areas.

  • By 2035 the aviation industry will need more than 2 million new aviation personnel (Boeing Pilot and Technician Outlook, 2016).
  • Take advantage of superior industry experience, with highly trained permanent staff including current and recent Airline, Australian Defence Force and Instructor Pilots and managers.
  • Absorb a comprehensive industry overview in the first semester within the Bachelor of Aviation, and then choose to pursue either flight operations or management streams.
  • Experience full control and begin flight training in your first year as part of the flight operations stream.
  • High-achieving students studying the Bachelor of Aviation (Flight Operations) are eligible to be considered for the Qantas Group Future Pilot Program.

USQ’s aviation and aviation management programs will equip future and existing aviation professionals for ‘sky-high’ careers.
