PolyU welcomes the Joint Maintenance Management Cooperation Arrangement signed by Hong Kong, Mainland and Macau aviation authorities

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) welcomed the signing of the Joint Maintenance Management Cooperation Arrangement between Hong Kong, Mainland China and Macau. The Arrangement will offer more career opportunities to Hong Kong’s young people aspiring to work in the aviation industry, and further strengthen Hong Kong's position as a leading international aviation hub.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the Civil Aviation Department of Hong Kong (CAD) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Macao (AACM) signed the Arrangement today. It aims to enable holders of aircraft maintenance licences issued by the three authorities to work in the aircraft maintenance organisations located in the three places.

PolyU’s Ir Professor H.C. Man, Dean of Faculty of Engineering, appreciated the tremendous effort and hard work of CAD to conclude the Cooperation Arrangement. He said, “We are glad that the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence qualifications obtained by our graduates are recognised by CAAC and AACM, allowing our graduates to have opportunities to work in Mainland China and Macau.”

PolyU’s Department of Aeronautical and Aviation Engineering (AAE) currently runs two Bachelor of Engineering Schemes (Air Transport Engineering and Aviation Engineering), which have integrated the CAD-approved aircraft maintenance training syllabus.

While AAE is fully responsible for the provision of all theoretical training, it is collaborating very closely with the Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company (HAECO) to provide a large part of the practical training to its students. Upon successful completion of both the theoretical and practical assessments, as well as fulfilment of all the subsequent practical experience gained from the actual aircraft maintenance environment, PolyU’s graduates will be able to apply for the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence.

AAE intends to increase the number of intakes for eligible students in the Greater Bay Area to foster the development of the aviation industry in the region.
