Program Overview

The Aviation Management and Operations diploma program (formerly Airport Operations) will prepare future aviation professionals with the knowledge and skills to meet the dynamic nature of the aviation industry. The modernized curriculum focuses on both the airport and airline industry regulations, processes and management practices, new technology, data analytics and a workplace education (non-coop) course. The program continues to bring theory into practice through the active engagement of industry stakeholders in the capstone courses as well as the workplace education (non-coop) course.

Forecasts from the key players in the aviation industry, including Airbus, Boeing, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), International Air Transport Association (IATA), and the BC Aviation Council, continues to expect human resource growth across all sectors of the aviation industry – both domestically and internationally. In the next ten years, this exciting industry is expected to see a major increase in capacity along with opportunities for skilled entry level aviation specialists.

Aviation Management and Operations students at the Aerospace Technology Campus receive interdisciplinary education in critical employability skills, aviation operations (including traditional and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems), aviation security, emergency preparedness, environmental, financial and economic sustainability, aviation regulatory processes and key management practices, data analytics and aviation modeling applications.

Graduates of the program are well prepared for careers in aviation management, wildlife control, airline and airport operations, airport and safety, security and emergency management.

The program

The two-year BCIT Diploma program in Aviation Management and Operations is fully supported and approved by the aviation industry and provides students with a comprehensive, interdisciplinary program of study. This is a unique aviation program offered in Western Canada. To maintain a current, high-calibre standard, the program has an Program Advisory Committee made up of airport and airline managers, Transport Canada representatives and other aviation industry experts.
