I am wondering if anyone on this site has attended and graduated from the Masters degree offered at Griffith University in Australia?

I am considering in pursing this degree, I am looking to gather more information regarding the school, the classes.. etc.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks  bigthumbsup

And if Q120 doesn't mind me piggybacking on his thread, can anyone recommend any masters degrees in aviation management offered online?

I completed a Masters of Science in Management, with a specialization in Air Transportation from ERAU last year. I did a little over half of the course work online with the other portion in class rooms at the Memphis Extended Campus.

I thought the entire degree program to be relatively easy, with the exception on the Capstone Project, which was a time mangement challenge that ended up being an 80 page document.

All in all, I recommend ERAU as they have "Extended" campuses in many locations and a easy to use "Worldwide" Campus via the online medium.

Piggyback along my friend...

Griffith University offers a two year online masters, same thing I am looking at except for its also offered at the school or online. Only difference is it takes 8 months to do it there and two years to complete online.

What's the capstone project like? I've been looking into getting a Masters from ERAU online and was looking over their website, but they didn't really elaborate on the capstone project.

2H4:

I have a MAS from ERAU, some done online, some done in the classroom. The courses vary DRAMATICALLY in quality ranging from "quite good" to "are you sure this is grad school"? It is relatively inexpensive, but I don't think it's worth much. If I had it to do over again I would do a straight MBA somewhere. The prevailing attitude in several ERAU classes is "pay the fee, get a B", and grade inflation is RAMPANT, devaluing the program. Having said that, several instructors were excellent, so it is totally an issue of who your instructors are and how much you put into it. The accident investigation class was excellent, BTW. If you are still torn, I would enroll and take a class you think would be interesting. If after that class you are happy, keep going; if not, bail out and look elsewhere.

Q120:

I know nothing about Griffith, sorry to not be more help.

I'm currently doing an MSc in Air Transport Management at Cranfield University in the UK and have had a great experience so far. I believe this program is one of the top 3 in the world, and is HIGHLY regarded in Europe.

Going to their open day on the 11th of November, looking forward to it already. It's pretty much either Cranfield or work for me.

That was my dilemma a few months ago. It's a no-brainer looking back. Get a higher education, it'll pay off in the long run.

Lets hope it does, getting your masters is not always the case. If someone is less educated but better connected they will be getting that job that you were expecting, plus your work experience is an important factor to remember because students cant just expect to get six figure salaries out of school just because they are super students who spent all their experience in the classroom.

I am going into my third year of the aviation management program at Georgian College. After which I am eligible to take the ERAU B.Sc in Aviation Management program which is offered at the college. Several people I know are currently doing this program which is offered as three day a week course at the Barrie campus. I myself am considering doing one of ERAU's online degree programs after my diploma because I feel I will have a better edge with a specialized degree rather than the simple broad "B.Sc in Aviation Management".

Aviation-wise, Georgian also has articulation agreements with Griffith, Loughborough (I know 2 grads), and ERAU.

The Capstone Project is your thesis project at the culmination of your degree. For ERAU, it is baiscally a stastical study of anything aviation related. It has at least 2 faculity members that serve as the Reader and the Chair. Both are involved in the process of writting the paper. The Reader is usually more technical in nature and reads over your paper to ensure that what your saying is correct, (the facts) in addition to checking for grammer. Then there is the Chair Person, who is the final check. I worked closely with my Chair on seeking guidance and advice. Both of these individuals will ultimately sign off on the paper once they think it is ready.

Yes, the exams are online. During my classes, I never went to the campus to take an exam. It would have been futile as in most instances, the Worldwide instructors were literally Worldwide themselves, i.e. not in Daytona.

Get yourself a master's degree in something other than aviation...like an MBA or something in Business. Will serve you well down the road if you need to work in a field other than aviation, but moreover, it shows you're well rounded education-wise.

Yes I just graduated from that program. And I most likely know you.

I am just about to finish the capstone in the master in aeronautical science degree at embry riddle. It is a good degree, but I must say that getting an undergraduate degree in engineering is far more powerful than either the masters in aeronautical science or my bachelors in economics. An engineering degree opens doors an can completely change a career. The ERAU degree and a business degree can enhance a career, but a good foundation is essential.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
