Course summary

In today’s globalised world, we have come to rely heavily on civil aviation – not only for international tourism, but also to keep the supply chains of many industry sectors running smoothly. For perishable commodities, such as fresh food or cut flowers, there is no alternative. This dynamic course, which capitalises on our current extensive links with airlines, aircraft manufacturers and airports in the UK, Ireland and overseas, provides an advanced study of air transport organisations globally, their management and the changing external environment in which they operate. Ideal for those seeking leadership positions in all areas of the airline, airport and the wider air transport industry, from planning and marketing, to logistics, operations and scheduling, this course can set you on the path to achieving Membership of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). Coventry University has an established reputation within the air transport and aerospace industry and a key advantage is the many opportunities for professional interaction through a programme of industry site visits, visiting guest lecturers and possibilities for participation on client-based group and individual project work.
