City University London held the second quarterly Induction Workshop for its MSc aviation management programmes in Dubai from 27th to 29th November. Dr Ivan Sikora, Captain Tilmann Gabriel and Samantha Roylance led the Induction Workshop.

Commenting on his recent visit to Dubai, Captain Gabriel said:

“These Induction Workshops have proven to be valuable for students studying on the MSc courses in Aircraft Maintenance Management, Air Transport Management and Air Safety Management who possess airline and aviation experience but who may lack exposure to an academic setting. We are very pleased with the response of our students so far to the Workshops. We welcomed 27 students from 23 countries – a truly global program for future leaders in the aviation industry.”

Online tools and resources

Tilmann lectureThe Workshops provide an introduction to academic research and writing, finance and statistics, presentation skills and the online tools and resources that a City student needs in order to study effectively on their courses. City’s aviation masters students who are based in various major global cities, are also pursuing full-time jobs in the sector. The Induction Workshop and the eight modules that they need to have passed during their MSc course are taught in London, Frankfurt and City’s teaching facility in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

Aviation safety

Aviation safety is a term encompassing the theory, investigation, and categorization of flight failures, and the prevention of such failures through regulation, education, and training. It can also be applied in the context of campaigns that inform the public as to the safety of air travel.
