Aerospace & Aviation Science

Train for a career in aerospace - one of the fastest growing industries in the UK.

About Aircraft Engineering

Train for a career in aerospace – one of the fastest growing industries in the UK with exciting opportunities to work in Wales and across the world. All our Aircraft Engineering courses are based at our International Centre for Aerospace Training (ICAT). This iconic centre includes classrooms as well as specialist workshops, laboratories and a huge, real-life hangar with aircraft where you will develop your practical skills. The Centre has fantastic links with industry. This means you gain the right knowledge, skills and industry qualifications on your course or Apprenticeships, as well as industry work placements – all preparing you for a career in the aerospace industry.

#YourCAVC

The College’s International Centre for Aerospace Training has many links with industry offering opportunities for work experience and placements for CAVC students with the likes of British Airways, AerFin, Cardiff Aviation and GE Aero.

#YourIndustry

The UK has the largest Aerospace industry in Europe and second in the world after the USA. £31bn turnover, £27bn exports, 39% growth since 2010, 128k direct employees and 4.1k Apprentices.

#YourFuture

After CAVC many students progress into employment. This includes Apprenticeships and trainee roles in engineering and aerospace companies across South Wales and beyond. Many other students progress on to a related university course across the UK, with some choosing to stay at ICAT to study our unique BSc (Hons) Aircraft Engineering degree run in partnership with Kingston University.
