A new global force in aviation emerged with the establishment of Aeronautical College of Bangladesh (ACB).It is the first aeronautical training center in Bangladesh. With the help of IATS, International Air Training Service, a research based company developed around 86 aeronautical related modules to provide international education material. Over the years ACB conducted many short courses for experienced Aircraft Maintenance Engineering personnel, including Human Factor in Aviation and Airworthiness.At the moment ACB offers wide range of courses approved by BTEC from Edexcel and is prepared to conduct three years fast track customized program for all student with an aspiration to become an engineer.At ACB we want you to reach your full potential. Our highly qualified and professional/licensed tutors make sure you receive expert tuition and where necessary, we’ll also arrange learning support to help you through your studies.ACB also has a dedicated team of staff on hand to advise you on anything from welfare and accommodation to personal problems and financial issues.
Message from the Honourable Chairman
Use of commercial aircraft started expanding after WWII. With the development of Jet engine aircraft its expansion accelerated at a rapid rate. In 2017, Boeing produces 863 aircraft and Airbus produced 763 aircraft. Other manufacturers of Canada, Russia, UK, Germany, Holland, French, Brazil also manufactured aircraft. In addition, there will be production of 622,000 business jet and other aircraft, demand of helicopter will be 132,000 by 2035. According Boeing study, Asia-Pacific regions require 261,000 pilot, 257,000 aircraft engineers, 321,000 cabin crews and Middle countries require 64,000 pilots, 66,000 engineers and 97,000 cabin crews by next few years.
In Bangladesh around 160m people live and now only three commercial passengers airlines operate schedule flights with less than 50 aircraft. What is surprising that even today private airlines have to depend on expatriate engineers spending huge amount of foreign currencies. Specially, the Cargo airlines like, Bismillah Airlines, Easy Fly Express, Hellow Airlines, Sky Air, True Aviation etc are wholly dependent on expatriate engineers. More interesting fact is that engineers from Honduras, Philippines, Indonesia even from Mongolia are serving here and this is reality. We export millions of workers but not the skilled manpower? Keeping all these in mind, ACB extends its hands in the area of aeronautical engineering to develop highly professional manpower to meet the local and foreign job market. It needs only decision of guardians and students to take the challenge and ACB ensures you to provide all out necessary efforts to realize this scheme and we are affirmative that we are doing it and will continue to do so with the cooperation of students and guardians.

Management policy of ACB is to develop human resources to an international standard in the field of aeronautical engineering and particularly to professional qualification of aircraft engineering license. For its BSc in Aeronautical Engineering degree it has primarily taken up the Internationally renowned curriculum of Edexcel/Pearson BTEC Level 3 and Level 5 and Top-Up Program at Universities of USA, Canada, UK and China. For aircraft engineering licensing it has tied up with Aero-Bildung, Germany, an EASA Part-147 AMTO. We conduct courses, Aero-Bildung, Germany conducts license examination, maintenance experience is provided in Part-145 AMO of Bismillah Airlines Ltd on its B747 and BAE HS 748 aircraft and EASA License is issued by LBA Germany or other Competent Authority of European Union.
With the highly qualified, well experienced, type rated licensed engineering faculty members, ACB ensures all out support for the theoretical, relevant hands-on training, practical and maintenance experience which will lead to success. We need active cooperation from the guardians and students in the form of attending regular classes, regular study and enough controlled sleep. If do so, you achieve the expected goal and make your dream a reality.

It is not that you look for the job rather job provider will look for you. There is a wide spread job placement/scope in the airlines of Middle East, Singapore, Hong Kong and other countries and also in different airlines of Bangladesh. What is needed you have to develop your capability and competence and ACB will extend all out help to achieve the goal.
With the advancement of technology nature of job and employment requirements also changes. Educational institute realizes the radical changes and the employment pattern of fresh graduates whom task are given and solutions tobe made on the relevant problem(s) if encounters. This is only possible if the students have the strong background knowledge and practical know how and exposed to the latest technology with the following:
- Depth of theoretical and hands on training
- Exposed to trouble shooting during in-house and field training
- Communication skills
- Discipline and corporate work etiquette
- Familiarity with the latest trends and development
Keeping these in mind ACB developed the structured programof theoretical, practical, seminars, workshops and industrial visits to familiarize with the industrial environment, interface the employer demand and competence required for the professional career.
