Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Avionics Technology

Overview

The Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Avionics Technology offers a stimulating, dynamic, and hands-on course in avionics engineering. It includes the study of design, manufacture, development, and maintenance of electrical and electronic systems in aeroplanes, satellites, helicopters and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).

The Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Avionics Technology also offers a strong foundation in the key aspects of avionics field such as communications, navigation, aircraft flight-control systems, collision-avoidance systems, black boxes, radar and sonar. The programme prepares learners for various jobs and careers in the electrical, electronics, communication and navigation field with greater emphasis towards aviation industry.

The following qualification is also available as exit award of the Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Avionics Technology.

  • Higher National Diploma (Advanced Diploma) in Avionics Engineering – 2 Years

Why enrol on this programme?

Avionics engineers work in one of the most technologically advanced branches of engineering. They design, construct, test and maintain electrical and electronics equipment on aircraft. Working within this field, will give you the chance to conceptualise a project, from the drawing board to planning and implementation.

The paradigm of the programme is skill-based with less focus on theory and more on coursework and application. Students will learn the intricacies of aircraft avionics systems, the various types of system failure that can occur and the implications of failures. It blends various disciplines such as mathematics, science, avionics technology including aerodynamics, flight control, electronics and communication. It is a highly skill-based programme with a view to making the learner skills transferable to a range of employment options within the aviation industry.
