Summary: Our views on the aircraft repair and maintenance major from the education consultants at UtoCanada
The job of the maintenance department is essentially to repair aircrafts. As long as there is a problem with the aircraft, the maintenance team will create a work order, and then follow it to troubleshoot, diagnose, and then make repairs.
The aircraft repair and maintenance major is very popular for employment after graduation because of its practicability, so it is a very popular major. At the same time, aircraft maintenance majors have higher language requirements than other majors -- IELTS 6.0-6.5 (the requirements are different for each school). After studying this major, it is also very easy to immigrate, because it is a mechanical occupation. Usually aircraft maintenance majors include internship opportunities, thus making it easier for students to find jobs after graduation.
Most schools open in September, but some colleges will start one month in advance, such as Mohawk College (mid-August). At the same time, students should be aware that not all colleges and universities accept international students, such as Centennial College. If you want to apply for this major, it is best to consult our education consultants in advance to understand the situation of each school and apply as soon as possible, because schools tend to limit the number of spots for international students, and the popular majors are gone very fast.
In Canadian colleges, the aircraft repair and maintenance major is mainly employment-focused and is essentially based on vocational training and education. Because it is employment-oriented, the skills taught are very practical. Now the salary structure of many white-collar workers has been shifted by new corporate policies – a structure with high bonuses and low base salaries. If a certain goal has not been achieved, the salary may not necessarily be higher than that of blue-collar workers. Even though the current blue-collar positions are mostly replaced by new technology and mechanical equipment, the society needs more and more of these talents along with the technology becoming more and more advanced.
Canada is a multicultural country. No matter what company is hiring, skin color and nationality do not affect your chances; unless have a bad track record or huge debt. If you have unpaid debt, your credit score going to be reduced, and you might even be sued. Your hiring company may conduct more and deeper investigations on you if that is the case.
