Master of Science in Aeronautics (Jointly organised with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, US)
The Master of Science in Aeronautics (MSA) combines a core of classes with 6 unique specialisation options to choose from. This flexibility to customise the degree enables you to meet your particular goals and addresses the needs of all sectors of the aviation and aerospace industry. The curriculum will help you master the tools needed in the development, manufactured, and operation of aircraft and spacecraft, as well as gain an understanding of the infrastructure that supports the industry.

If you already possess a master's degree or have completed graduate coursework from an accredited degree-granting institution, you must have attained a 3.0 CGPA or higher at the graduate level.
You must submit official transcripts from all accredited institutions showing degree completion or courses attempted. Official or unofficial transcripts may be required to verify prerequisite knowledge.
