CYUT has signed a contract with Aviation Australia to jointly train the aviation professionals
The global MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations) market has grown rapidly, reaching $67.6 billion in 2016. It is expected to exceed $100 billion by 2026. More than 250,000 flight MRO technicians will be in critical demand in the Asia Pacific region in the following 20 years. In order to cultivate elite technicians that could meet standards of European EASA and North American FAA certificates, Tao-Ming Cheng, President of CYUT, Chih-Hung Chiang, Director of the Aviation Academy's preparatory office, and other faculty members went to Australia for an inspection and signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Aviation Australia. Both universities will cooperate to promote aircraft maintenance training programs, training activities, and mutual teacher exchange.
President Tao-Ming Cheng said that due to the shortage of pilots and maintenance technicians around the globe, the Ministry of Education has approved of CYUT’s establishment of "Department of Aviation Mechanics" and students will be recruited in 2019 academic year. As Aviation Australia is commonly recognized as one of the leading aviation personnel training institutions in the Asia Pacific region and one of the leading colleges providing aircraft maintenance training courses, it is believed that Aviation Australia can offer a series of accredited flight attendant and maintenance courses for students of Department of Aviation Mechanics for their future jobs in the aerospace market.
