Aerospace industry is fundamentally vital to a nation’s development since it creates countless of jobs, generate growth for other industry sectors, fuels technology and economic growth. Most importantly, it connects people for social ties, tourism and business opportunities between trading cities, states and nations. Understanding the importance of aerospace industry and the promising future it holds, our government successfully introduced Malaysia Aerospace Industry Blueprint in 2015, specifying all nation’s strategic initiatives, aiming to be the regional champion in ASEAN by 2030. Aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) came up top as one of the aerospace industry sub-sectors identified by the government for priority growth in terms of manpower, infrastructure and business/industry development. Aerospace manufacturing, engineering design and services, system integration and aerospace training are also the focus areas specified in the strategic plan.

Nevertheless, to produce the industry manpower needs is not the only the goals of the university to grow the industry with all rounded engineering knowledge and skill personnel but also able to deliver engineering quality and management assessments, give sound recommendations and communicate effectively with aircraft and component manufacturers, engineering design organizations, suppliers and authorities.

As such, the Aerospace Section is established in the university, which is responsible to provide fundamental engineering knowledge and skills with quality/management perspectives to the university’s program and to the graduates as well. The presence of Aerospace Section will not only help the industry to grow but simultaneously enhance the graduate competencies and employability as licensed professionals. Furthermore, it enables the graduates to venture into other aerospace positions, e.g. technical design, production, manufacturing, repair, quality and support engineer or specialist offered in the aerospace industry.
