Applied Bachelor Avionics Engineering


Avionics Engineering is a highly-advanced discipline that explores the electronic systems used on modern aircraft. Avionics system include the auto-pilot, navigation, communication and flight instruments. This programme provides you with the practical training and commercial acumen that you will need to succeed in this advanced technological field.

The Applied Bachelor in Avionics Engineering is a four-year programme designed to offer a stimulating, dynamic, and high-quality applied course in avionics engineering. This programme prepares learners for various jobs and careers in the airline industry on research, development, production, maintenance and testing of aviation electronics.

The following qualifications are also available as exit awards of the Applied Bachelor in Avionics Engineering.

  • Advanced Diploma in Avionics Engineering – 3 Years
  • Diploma in Avionics Engineering – 2 years.

Why enrol on this programme?

The Applied Bachelor in Avionics Engineering is a four-year program based on the vocational curriculum for higher education awards. During those four 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 and components on aircraft. Working within this field, will give you the opportunity to conceptualise a project, from the drawing board to planning, implementation and evaluation.

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 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.


The Applied Bachelor in Avionics Engineering is accredited by the Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs.

Students that successfully complete the programme have the option of obtaining a Coventry University certificate.

Career Prospects

EAU has a first-rate working relationship with Emirates Airline and other UAE aviation establishments, which offer excellent job opportunities. This Applied Bachelor in Avionics Engineering programme aims to equip graduates with the skills to become successful engineers and managers in their discipline and other specialized engineering sectors. 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 locally and abroad. Some have chosen to pursue a higher education (Master’s and PhD degrees) in several engineering areas.

Internship and Practical Experience

In collaboration with EK Engineering and the Emirates Group, EAU will offer its active students who are enrolled in this programme, a six-month industrial internship. This is embedded into the curriculum of the programme and weighting fifteen credits in their semester 6 of their studies.

The coveted internship programme with one of the region’s most successful organisations, will help students combine academic study with practical skills and experience relevant to their education and career plans. Top achiever students enrolled in the internship programme will also receive a monthly nominal compensation to cover their costs.

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