Aviation Management

Maintaining a thriving industry requires overseeing from the ground up.

We believe managing ground operations is as critical to the aviation industry – and the public – as flying aircraft. That’s why we offer Aviation Management at Swinburne.

Aviation management courses are an opportunity to explore the operational areas of aviation to help you achieve a management role in the industry. We developed our course with aviation professionals to provide you with an expert understanding of the trade and its environment. You’ll also gain invaluable skills in organisational, regulatory, safety, technical and business management.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your wisdom to the workplace. Future aviation management careers can be found in airlines, airports, regulatory authorities and associated organisations.

What I like most is that the course provides students with a sound understanding of the aviation industry, both locally and overseas, and also provides opportunities in many different areas in the industry.
