Nigeria’s aviation varsity, AAAU, to commence academic activities in November

Following provisional approval by the National Universities Commission (NUC), Nigeria’s aviation university, the African Aviation and Aerospace University (AAAU), Abuja will commence academic activities in November 2022.

The aviation university, one of the critical items on the aviation road map, has been in the works for about six years.

The Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, while briefing journalists on the commencement of the Pan-African University in Abuja said applications for the pioneer students will commence this month (September) and lectures will begin before the year-end.

He said: “The establishment of the university was borne out of the need to address the critical skills gap within the Nigerian aviation sector which is part of the challenges preventing the sector from achieving its full potential.

“The university will open registration from the 26th of September to the 28th of November, 2022.”

According to the minister, the admission process will be handled by the Nile University, Abuja based on the partnership agreement. The university’s temporary campus and head office will be the new Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) building before the toll gate at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

While noting that the university has met the necessary regulatory approvals by the National Universities Commission (NUC), Sirika said the university would commence with two courses with a maximum of 25 students in each course of study.
