The University of Balamand (UOB) is a private, non-profit, independent institution of higher learning which was founded in 1988 by His Beatitude Patriarch Ignatius IV, Patriarch of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church.
It is conscious of its educational and cultural role in the Arab region and in the World. The University relies on knowledge, openness, and dialogue as paths to cooperation and cultural development, fully recognizing that development depends on interaction with other cultures to further peace, justice, and basic values.
As such, and with the support of AACO the Balamand DUT programs in Aircraft Maintenance Technology were designed to direct local youth to a challenging and much needed technological gap in the market.
The DUT is a three-year university degree, of a technical and applied nature and is fully certified and approved by the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education and the Directorate General for Civil Aviation.
The Balamand program in Aircraft Maintenance Technology will seek, through first class quality education, to prepare well rounded aircraft technical personnel who are capable to become appropriately licensed to maintain the ever-growing fleets of the regional aviation industry.
