Advanced Diploma in Aircraft Engineering Technology

JPT/BPP(R2/525/5/0018)04/27, (MQA/FA1380)

Gain a higher qualification, which will help you climb the career ladder in this highly lucrative field. This programme is designed to give students a deeper understanding of various courses first encountered in the Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering programme.

Maintenance Engineering as equivalent to its Foundation Degree programme. As such, Diploma graduates, upon completing the Advanced Diploma Programme, will be awarded the BEng (Hons) in Aircraft Engineering top up from Kingston University, London, alongside the Nilai University Advanced Diploma in Aircraft Engineering Technology.


Intake Periods
Entry Requirements

Graduated with a Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering or in the related field with a minimum CGPA of 2.00 and a pass in English and possess SPM or an equivalent


English Language Requirements

(for international students)*

TOEFL 500 (PBT)/42(iBT)
Pearson 47

*International students with qualifications from educational systems where English language is the main medium of instruction are exempted from this requirement.
