MECHANICAL

Mechanical

Establishment of UniKL Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT) Mechanical Section purposely to play an important role to cater for two (2) main trades as per CAAM and EASA requirement; Airframe and Powerplant. Airframe trade covers for all mechanical components, mechanisms and systems related to fuselage, wing, tail and engine structure. There are two (2) types of propulsion system covered under Powerplant; Turbine Engine and Piston Engine.
Several theoretical courses also fall under mechanical section such as Physics and Aerodynamics, Human Factor, Theory of Flight, and Aviation Legislation.
There are 2 diploma programmes (Diploma of Engineering Technology – DET) and 1 bachelor programme (Bachelor of Aircraft Enginering Technology – BAET) offered by university directly fall under Mechanical Section. These programmes are:
1. DET Aeroplane
2. DET Helicopter
3. BAET (Hons.) Mechanical

Info about the section

Currently there are 42 staff under Mechanical Section covering for diploma and bachelor programmed. Most of the staff has more than 5 years in industrial background related to aviation field such as Military (Air Force), Airlines, General Aviation, Manufacturing and Maintenance.
