Qantas engineering performing engine maintenance

Qantas Group Engineering Academy

Qantas’ safety reputation is enhanced every day by the work of our team of aircraft engineers. And we're looking for the next generation of world-class engineers.

About the Academy

Qantas Engineer working on an aircraft

With more than 100 years of engineering excellence in Australia, Qantas trains our aircraft maintenance engineers to the highest standards.

Over the next decade, the Qantas Group alone will need hundreds of new engineering recruits every year to meet growth as well as attrition as current engineers retire.

To build a pipeline of engineers in this country and shape the next generation of engineering talent, we're establishing the Qantas Group Engineering Academy. The Academy will provide aviation engineers for the Qantas Group as well as the broader aviation industry, including defence contractors and general aviation.

We expect the typical entrants to be high school or university graduates with an interest in a career in aircraft engineering.

Melbourne and Brisbane home to Qantas Group Engineering Academy

We have announced that our Group Engineering Academy will be based in both Melbourne and Brisbane in partnership with Aviation Australia, meaning our new trainees will be able to choose between studying at facilities in either city. The Academy locations will be close to our maintenance hangars giving trainees a mix of both classroom and real-world learning environment. Read more information on the Qantas News Room.

We'll be releasing more information about the Academy in the coming months.
