Dear Mukhit:

Thank you for your questions, I will try to assist.

Aviation Technology, in the higher education world, is a field of study (or discipline) devoted to the study of aircraft and how they well as how to work on them from an aviation maintenance perspective.  An Aviation Technology degree normally results in the student qualifying to take the Oral and Practical examinations to receive Federal Aviation Administraiton (in the USA), or ICAO, certification as an "Airframe and Power Plant" aviation technician.  Courses related to aviation technology will include such things as Aviation Composite Repair, Aviation Regulations, Human Factors in aviation, Aviation Science, Hydaulics, Basic Electricity, Fuels Systems, Turbine Transition/Engines, Landing Gear Systems, etc.

Overall, in the USA, there are over 400,000 certificated Airframe and Power Plant Mechanics and many of them work in the airline industry, in the aerospace manufacturing industry and for overhaul/repair operations.

As for aviation law/legislation master's degree in the UK or Australia, I do not know of any.  There is a Master of Aviation Management at Griffiths University, near Brisbane, Australia.

Best wishes to you,
