Bachelor in AVIONICS course combines a solid grounding in electronics with a range of appropriate material involving electronic and computer systems for aerospace applications. This degree program aims to provide a graduate with all of the necessary technical knowledge to work in a variety of disciplines associated with avionic systems: radar systems, inertial navigation systems, guidance and control, and avionic systems design.
Engineering methods have played an important role in all of the stages of aircraft development through history and in recent years, electronic engineering in particular has grown to play a crucial role. Beyond the mechanical design of the airframe itself and an understanding of aerodynamic forces, electronic systems provide the technology which enables current high-performance aircraft to fly.
Advancements in aeronautical engineering have contributed to the design of the jet engine, a detailed understanding of the behavior of airflow at hypersonic speeds, and the development of new construction materials and methods suitable for the extreme stresses of flight.
As the complexity of aircraft systems has increased, together with the need to ensure safety and reliable control of the aircraft, major growth areas have emerged. These include instrumentation and cockpit displays, flight control and autopilot systems, engine control, diagnostic systems, on-board navigation systems, satellite global positioning systems, radar systems, communications and air traffic control systems.
Students on this course are able to develop their knowledge of such areas through a range of specialist modules and in-depth project work.
