Aviation Management and Piloting – dual (B.Sc.)

Tourism/Travel Management

The Bachelor's programme "Aviation Management and Piloting – dual" offered by the department of Tourism/Travel Management of Hochschule Worms in conjunction with the European Institute of Aviation and Business gGmbH (EIAB), lets students obtain their Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) for airplanes (ATPL (A)) or helicopters (ATPL (H)) parallel to their university studies.

The ATPL allows the holder to pilot commercial airplanes or helicopters as a pilot in command, including those that require a two- or multi-man crew according to their certification. Practical flight training is conducted by partner flight schools in Worms and the US (for ATPL (A) only).

The duration of the Bachelor's study programme is six semesters (three years). The "Aviation Management and Piloting – dual" study programme concludes with the academic degree "Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)" and includes the acquisition of a commercial pilot's license.

By linking pilot training and business management studies with a focus on the aviation industry, students are prepared for a job in aviation, but also in management of an airline or other aviation-related companies and institutions. The Bachelor's study programme simultaneously qualifies graduates to commence a consecutive Master's degree course.
