Management for Aeronautical Science (MGMT203)

Synopsis

An introductory course in aeronautics to provide students an orientation in aviation and other aerospace related topics appropriate to management degree programs. Subjects include: aviation careers; the science of flight; aviation safety managerial responsibilities; passenger and cargo security issues; safety and human factors issues; aircraft airworthiness certifications; aviation resources; the aviation environment; and meteorology.

Level: 2
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every semester
E-Learning: BLENDED - Learning is done MAINLY online using interactive study materials in Canvas. Students receive guidance and support from online instructors via discussion forums and emails. This is supplemented with SOME face-to-face sessions. If the course has an exam component, this will be administered on-campus.
