The American College of Higher Education (ACHE), one of the leading higher education institutes in Sri Lanka recently entered into a partnership with the Guangzhou Civil Aviation College, China to provide specialized aviation courses, that are high quality and affordable, for Sri Lankan students. Guangzhou Civil Aviation College is an institute sponsored and funded by the Government of China and approved by the Ministry of Education, China.

Under this partnership, ACHE will offer six programmes of study including Tourism and Travel, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering, Aircraft Structure Engineering, Avionics, Electrical Engineering as well as Computer Network Engineering and Telecommunications.

This programme involves one year of study in Sri Lanka, and the next year in Guangzhou Civil Aviation College, China.

The first batch of students will commence classes at ACHE in September, and will be eligible to be transferred to China in September 2011.

This was launched in collaboration with Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology, Canada's largest college, with approximately 100,000 part time and full time students.
