SriLankan Aviation College (SLAC) and Kingston University London have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the launch of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Top Up Degree in Aircraft Engineering in Sri Lanka, providing a new dimension in airline-related education in the region.

Kingston University London has been delivering the programme in the UK since 2001 with hundreds of graduates now working with major airlines around the world. SLAC, the training arm of SriLankan Airlines, is the first institution in Sri Lanka to provide professionals the opportunity to obtain this qualification in the country.

This programme will enable students who are qualified up to an ‘EASA B License Training Certificate' to achieve an honours degree, which is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society. Working professionals who have obtained the EASA Part 66 / CAASL IS 66 license or equivalent Category B Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Course are eligible to apply for the Top Up Degree on a part time basis from May 2018.

The MoU was signed between Primal De Silva, General Manager, SriLankan Aviation College and Dr Peter Barrington, Head, Department of Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering of Kingston University London.

The degree will enhance the knowledge that candidates have gained and will provide them with another internationally recognised qualification. An experienced panel of lecturers from Kingston University London will facilitate the classes at SLAC with a convenient class schedule.
