This part-time postgraduate module will be delivered by Atlantic Aviation Group (AAG) in conjunction with the University of Limerick (UL). The aim is to provide students with the concepts and processes involved in the design and certification of aircraft modifications, with focus on the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Certification Specification (CS) for large aeroplanes (EASA CS-25).
To suit working Aviation professionals, delivery is a blend of face-to-face tutorials/workshops supported by online learning.
The module offers a detailed presentation and analysis of the key functions performed within EASA Design Organisations, with an emphasis on the technical disciplines required for changes to Type Certificates (TCs) of large aeroplanes. Moreover, the students will learn how to apply the essential processes which are necessary for managing effectively those design changes within the EASA environment.
- Professionals working or intending to work in: Part 21 Design Organisations / Part M Organisations / Part 145 Organisations; Aviation Technical Service Organisations needing to understand the Part 21 Design change process.
- New Engineering Graduates seeking to enter this sector.
The module will be assessed through 100% continuous assessment, using sample modifications and the processes discussed during the course lectures assessed against the legislative and certification requirements laid down by EASA. The assessment will include: One individual report (40%) and one group project (60%).
