This is optional course with Aircraft Maintenance Engineering - 3 Years Programme.
The Course is a Three Years programme and structured into six academic semesters.
The aviation industry has two main branches: flying branch and maintenance branch. While pilots fly the aircraft,aircraft maintenance engineers are concerned with the maintenance of the aircraft. An aircraft maintenance engineer has to obtain a license from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation(DGCA).
An aircraft maintenance engineer is responsible for the control, maintenance and repair of specialized aircraft instrumentation and related parts of the aircraft. They also learn to set engine controls and to test for their correct functioning. They play a major role among the maintenance personnel to keep the aircraft 'airworthy' at all times. The maintenance of modern sophisticated aircrafts calls for high degree of technical knowledge, competence, proficiency, dexterity and integrity on part of the concerned personnel. Aircraft engineers research, design, manufacture and maintain aircraft. They work on any and every mechanical aspect of the craft, including airframes, hydraulics and pneumatics, engines and fuel systems and control and communications systems.
A course in aircraft maintenance engineering is not a degree but a license course and only those institutes approved by the DGCA can impart training in this subject. The minimum eligibility criterion for getting admission into any one of the institutes is 10+2 or equivalent with physics, chemistry and mathematics.
On completion of training will get a Basic Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Certificate (BAMEC) from the DGCA which will make you eligible for a job in the aviation industry.
