Aviation Engineering

Learn everything about Flight Dynamics, Aircraft Propulsion, Aerodynamics, Aircraft Systems and Components, Flight Control and Aviation Safety

What's Inside?

Aviation is the bridge of our country. It connects our archipelago and people by carrying passengers and goods. With the introduction of low-cost carrier airlines, the aviation industry is growing at a faster rate. Large numbers of aircraft operated by airlines requires more pilots, maintenance personnel, airport staffs, air trafficcontrollers and other indirect job positions. The quality of aviation personnel is an important aspect in managing and operating the aviation industry.


The International Joint Seminar IULI-EASA on Higher Education for Aviation Profession (Jakarta, 2019) recommended involving higher education (university) to improve the profession standard of aviation.

The future requirements for aviation professionals do not only focus on licensing, but also on analytical thinking to face the future challenges.In the near future, a novel development in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) or drones will become part of our daily life. Parcel delivery, aerial photography, wildlife monitoring, search/rescue and agriculture are several applications of UAS.


This technology will require new set of manpower specifications including designing, developing, testing, and operation.We involved our international partner universities in improving the knowledge and experience of our students to be preparedfor the future challenges in aviation with several programsuch as double degree and exchange students.


Aviation Engineering at IULI will empower its graduates with an industrial based curriculum, experienced faculty members, and the opportunity to build a professional career in an international environment.

The field of engineering is more focused on designing, developing, and improving aircraft and spacecraft for a more efficient and more secure flying venture for mankind. Behind these flying bodies, there is marvelous work of engineering, thousands of hours spent on research, and hundreds of operations happening at the same time and then they fly in the air.


From the Wright Flyer (plane by Wright brothers) to the modern huge flying airplanes, there is too much evolution occurred in this field and the credit goes to aviation engineering and its research which make the flights safer, quicker, and efficient.

Many students have questions in their minds about what they would do after getting a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Engineering degree. The industry related to aviation is huge like military, flight operation, manufacturing and designing of aircraft, and much more. As an aviation engineer, responsibilities involve the design, development, testing, and maintenance of aircraft. You may work on flight systems, mechanical elements within the plane, airspace navigation systems, wing or body materials, or other aspects of airplanes or aviation. The duties of the aviation engineer include testing the designs or developments that you create and adjusting or correcting before the assembly of the aircraft.

There are a lot of career opportunities in Indonesia as there are more than 17,000+ islands and the quickest way to transit is air travel which means more airports, more airplanes, and requirement for more aviation engineers like you to make things work smoothly and efficiently.

What Are The Advantages of Studying Aviation Engineering?

A career in aerospace is not only thrilling but also rewarding. There are many advantages that you can get as an aviation engineer in the industry. Some of the key perks come along with this degree are:

The field is very vast regarding career opportunities all over the world. As a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Engineering, you can easily land on some interesting job according to your will. It offers many employment opportunities, right from working as researchers, designers, to taking up jobs directly associated with the working and maintenance of aircraft. Also, if you choose this career path and work in Indonesia, you will be directly participating in the country’s growth because as a country based on thousands of islands, there is a dire need for a strong aviation network and obviously, it will be possible with the aviation engineers like you.

Aviation is a skill-demanding profession which requires a high level of dedication, professional behavior, and commitment to the work. There are few names in this industry who are well reputed and only players of this game. They offer lucrative salary packages to the engineers for your skillset.
