Avionics and Aeronautical Engineering is a highly-advanced discipline that explores how flight is possible, how flying vehicles are manufactured, powered, operated, controlled and maintained. This programme provides you with the practical training and commercial acumen you will need to succeed in this high-technology field.x

The BEng (Hons.) in Avionics Technology is a three-year programme designed to offer a stimulating, dynamic, and high-quality vocational course in aerospace and aeronautical engineering. This programme prepares learners for various jobs and careers in the airline industry on aircraft acquisitions, planning, configuration and maintenance.

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

  • Higher National Diploma in Avionics Engineering – 2 Years

Why enrol on this programme?

The BEng (Hons.) in avionics Technology is a tree year program based on the British model for higher education awards. During those three years learners will receive a broad education and application in all 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 structure 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.

Career Prospects

EAU has a first-rate working relationship with Emirates Airline and other UAE aviation establishments, which offer excellent job opportunities. Our students have gone on to find careers in both avionics design and application and maintenance engineering with aerospace companies, systems suppliers, component manufacturers and service providers.

Practical Experience

Not only will students learn comprehensive theory, but EAU will also provide the means to gain practical experience in well-equipped laboratories and workshops as well as hands on experience in a real workplace environment through on job training and internships where applicable.

Accreditation for Prior Learning (APL)

(APL) is an academic process that recognises and values your previous study.

(APL) is allowed in Year 1 and Year 2, but not Year (3). I.e. you can skip modules from the first year and even the second year in case you did similar modules in another institution.  But you cannot skip any module from the 3rd year.



Three years.

Mode of delivery
