KLM UK Engineering Partners with Nilai University

Paris, Amstelveen, Norwich – 31 May 2016 – KLM UK Engineering is delighted to announce the signing of a long term partnership with Nilai University (Malaysia) for the provision of EASA Part 147 exams supported by KLM UK Engineering’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Software.

Under the agreement, KLM UK Engineering will support Nilai University’s successful Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and Advanced Diploma in Aircraft Engineering Technology programmes by providing experienced examiners and VLE to allow the students to gain their EASA Part 66 B licence.

With over 150 students graduating each year, the programme is equipping the aviation industry with skilled, qualified and competent engineers for the next generation.

Prof.Dato' Dr.Sothi Rachagan, Vice-Chancellor of Nilai University said: “Combining the exceptional learning environment of Nilai University with a world renowned MRO is a decision that will give our students an increased learning experience. This long term partnership will allow both Nilai University and KLM UK Engineering to train the next generation of aircraft engineers.  The industry is expected to have a surge in demand for qualified and experienced personnel in the coming years. We are confident that the graduates of Nilai University’s aircraft maintenance programmes will have the knowledge, skills and attributes to be the backbone of the industry for many years to come.”

Whilst Wayne Easlea, Operations Director of KLMUKE added: “The partnership with Nilai is a huge step forward in our aim to connect KLMUKE’s VLE products to many young engineers in the UK and abroad. The industry needs many good engineers for the future to accommodate the growing worldwide fleet and to replace inevitable retirements. KLMUKE wants to leverage its knowledge and experience and connect many more universities to its growing educational centre. This centre will be collocated as of early 2017 in the International Aviation Academy in Norwich
