MSc in Aviation Security

Campus Part time 18  September 2017 United Arab Emirates Dubai

The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. [+]

MSc in Aviation Security The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. The areas of Aviation Safety or Aviation Security are closely related and the MSc Aviation Security / MSc Aviation Safety programmes contain five modules that are core to both and deal with common issues such as risk management, human factors, strategy, operations and planning. Fundamentally, however, safety relates to measures that are taken against the threat of an accident, while security refers to protection from threats motivated by hostility or malice. Each programme therefore contains three specialist modules that enable students to consider in depth the different areas of regulations and compliance, design, use of technologies and systems that are associated with these different perspectives. Further specialisation is achieved through the Project which is required to focus on a topic that is aligned with the specialist area. By completing five core and three specialised modules, plus a subject area Project, students may obtain an MSc in either Aviation Safety or Aviation Security. If they wish to obtain a second MSc in the alternate specialisation on top of the first award, learners may complete the three additional specialised modules plus a second Project in the other subject area. Why enrol on this programme? The MASAS programme is one of very few degree programmes in the world to address those needs. The awards provide graduates with knowledge of management, safety and security issues in aviation, and the ability to establish or administer safety or security programs in business, industry, or government. The programme offers the graduate student a professional capstone for any background in aviation. Accreditation The MSc in Aviation Security is a dual award programme conferred by Emirates Aviation University and Coventry University, UK. The EAU award is accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR) in the UAE. Career prospects The exponential growth of the aviation sector requires a parallel growth in appropriate specialised qualifications that provides employers with an element of confidence in the ever changing and complex business environment. The MASAS programme comes as an ideal opportunity for applicants seeking growth or new opportunities in the field. A typical student may have a number of years' experience in his or her particular field of safety or security expertise (or may simply be seeking a career change towards those fields). The student may probably already be in a junior or middle management role (or seeking an upgrade). He or she may probably have an enthusiasm to implement safety or security management systems across departmental boundaries. On graduation the student will gain a Dual Award qualification from two internationally respected institutions. The graduate will be ready to shoulder a significant level of responsibility for defining and implementing the employer's safety or security policy. Upon the completion of the master’s programme, opportunities also exist to complete a PhD research degree at Emirates Aviation University awarded by Coventry University, UK. Course outline The course consists of eight modules and a project/thesis. Core Modules 1. Aviation Safety and Security Risk Management 2. Human Factors in Aviation 3. Air Transport Management and Strategy 4. Crisis Management and Emergency Planning 5. Airport and Airline Security Operations Security Modules 6. Aviation Security 7. Aviation Security Legislation 8. Aviation Physical Security 9. Project/Thesis Mode of delivery The programme is delivered on a part-time basis, in five day blocks per module, held every two months. Modules span the weekend to facilitate minimum disruption for participants in full time employment. All classes are delivered at our new campus located in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC). Duration Eighteen months, part time. [-]
