Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Aircraft Maintenance Technology (BSAMT) is a four-year ladderized degree program designed to prepare students for becoming aircraft technicians. The curriculum provides students with knowledge and skills in the field of aircraft maintenance such as constructing, inspecting, operating, maintaining, and repairing structures, systems and power plants for aircraft and other aerospace vehicles.


Since BSAMT is a ladderized course, a student who finishes two years of the program is given a Certificate of Completion in Aircraft Maintenance Technology and becomes eligible to take the licensure exam at the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP). 


Recommended Senior High School Strand

Students who want to pursue a degree in Aircraft Maintenance Technology are encouraged to take the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand under the Academic Track. The strand provides the basics of applied mathematics and sciences that will be useful in their college life.


Subjects and Curriculum

  • Aircraft Propellers and Rotary Wings Fundamentals
  • Aviation Safety
  • Aircraft Maintenance and Inspection
  • Aircraft Materials and Processes
  • Aviation Thermodynamics
  • Aircraft Structures
  • Aircraft Accident Investigation and Prevention
  • Air Laws and Civil Air Regulations
  • Airplane Ground Operations

Admission Requirements

Qualifications

  • The student must be a high school graduate. However, if they were not able to graduate high school, they may opt to take the Alternative Learning System (ALS)
  • and pass the Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) to qualify for college; the availability of courses for PEPT passers depend on the university.
  • The students must pass the College Admissions Test of the university.

Basic Requirements

  • Copy of NSO Certified birth certificate
  • Certificate of Good moral character
  • Copy of honorable dismissal

  • (1) Latest 2”x2” ID Picture

Program Outcome

Graduates of Aircraft Maintenance Technology are expected to be able to:

  • Maintain aircraft for full operation including making regular inspections, maintenance and servicing.
  • Create aircraft, components, and support equipment.
  • Supervise the assembly of air frames and the installation of engines, instruments, and other equipment.
  • Participate in flight test programs to measure take-off distances, rate of climb, stall speeds, maneuverability, and landing capacities.
  • Resolve issues that arise during the design, development, and testing processes.
  • Modify designs to improve safety features or minimize fuel consumption and pollution.
  • Work with teams, suppliers, clients, and managers to agree on budgets, timescales, and specifications.
  • Communicate technical and regulatory advice to clients, teams, suppliers and other professionals within the aerospace industry and presenting data to groups and individuals.

On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the fourth year of the program, students are required to attend an On the Job Training (OJT) in an aviation or flight company.


Students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in an actual work setting. Usually, universities require them to submit a written report on their tasks, learning experiences, and hours rendered. Their work performance will also be evaluated by their immediate managers and will be submitted to their respective OJT coordinator. The number of hours required may differ in each university.


Board Exam

The licensing examinations for aviation maintenance are not considered board examinations. A graduate of BSAMT can still work as an aircraft technician without passing any licensing exam; however, taking the licensing examinations would give one an advantage in terms of employment. The licensing examinations for aviation maintenance are conducted by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP). 


The two Aviation Maintenance Licensing exams available for BSAMT graduates in the Philippines:

Aviation Maintenance Technician License (AMT)

This exam can be taken after completing two years of the BSAMT program. 


First, you need to pass a written exam covering topics on air law and airworthiness, natural science and aircraft general knowledge, aircraft engineering, aircraft maintenance, and human performance. 


Second, for the skills requirement, an applicant must pass an oral and a skill test. The test covers the applicant's basic skill in performing practical projects on the subjects covered by the written test. 


Finally, after passing the knowledge and skills requirements, an applicant for the AMT license must accomplish the experience requirements of either practical experience or training in an Air Transportation Office (ATO). 


Aviation Maintenance Specialist License (AMS)

The AMS license is more advanced licensure than the AMT. 


The knowledge and skills requirements for the AMS License are more or less the same with the AMT license. One key difference is that the AMS license is not exclusively given to Filipinos; it is also applicable for foreign nationals who come from countries that grant the same rights and privileges to citizens of the Philippines. 


Applicants for the AMS license must be employed in a specific job requiring specific qualifications. They must obtain a certification for the employment from a maintenance organization approved by the CAAP. Lastly, applicants must also obtain a certification from their employer that he/she has satisfactorily maintained an aircraft or its components, appropriate to the job for which they are employed.


Career Opportunities

Graduates of BS in Aircraft Maintenance Technology may pursue a career path in an aviation or flight company. They may apply for roles such as an aircraft machinist technician, aviation maintenance instructor, aircraft loadmaster technician, aircraft fuel system technician, hydraulic mechanic, landing gear mechanic, aircraft maintenance planner, and aircraft rigging and controls mechanic.
