About the BSc in Aviation (from MAU’s  website)

The B.Sc. (Aviation) major is for students wishing to obtain a university degree while preparing for a career in the aviation industry. It is offered in partnership with the Moncton Flight College (MFC), one of the premier flight training establishments in Canada. 

The major is an interdisciplinary science program, featuring study in depth of subjects that are relevant to aviation, including geography, mathematics and physics, together with professional pilot training to an advanced level. 

The program begins with first year courses taken at the Mount Allison campus in Sackville. In following years, while continuing to take courses in Sackville, students also complete an intensive flight training program at the MFC campus in Dieppe, N.B., including ground school and flying instruction. 

Before graduation students complete over 200 hours of flying, hundreds of hours of ground training, and hold a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) with multi-engine and instrument ratings. The option to complete the integrated Airline Transport Pilot (IATP) course is also available.

In consultation with the program co-ordinator, students select their courses to provide additional depth in computer science, geography, mathematics or physics and complete a minor for the B.Sc.
