Aviation Information and Telecommunication Technology – Estonian Aviation Academy

Gain engineering knowledge to direct the future of aviation

The aviation field is primarily evolving worldwide through advancements in aviation technology.

The Aeronautical Engineering curriculum consists of two highly important directions: 

Students apply for Aeronautical Engineering curriculum and choose the specialisation after the first year. 


This curriculum is taught exclusively in Estonian in a form of daytime studies. The study period is 4 years, and if one studies full-time, the study is free.

We welcome foreign students through Erasmus+ programme or to study in our international programmes.


One of the key foundations for manned and unmanned aviation is the utilization of various communication, navigation, surveillance, and data processing systems. Aeronautical Information and Telecommunications graduates become experts with engineering knowledge who:

  • are capable of deploying, configuring, and operating systems necessary for air traffic management;

  • possess knowledge of antennas, communication, navigation, surveillance, and radio systems;

  • have programming skills and understand software, computer networks, cybersecurity, and broader information technology solutions;

  • have the option to work as hands-on specialists with various technical solutions, focus on administrative tasks, or contribute to development activities and participate in the implementation of new technologies.

About the studies


Upon graduation, the alumnus will have acquired broad-based engineering skills and will be able to work in the aviation sector as well as in information and telecommunication technology companies, both in Estonia and abroad. One of many future jobs can be, for example, operative work in shifts as technical personnel. Or more creative and flexible, for example, as a communication engineer who maintains, repairs and develops communication, navigation and surveillance equipment. Broad-based knowledge also allows working as a project or team manager.

Aviation, the field where extraordinary people are working, was a great childhood dream of mine. Commencing my studies at the Estonian Aviation Academy was the first step on the career ladder in the aviation. In addition to the diploma, I learned that despite some setbacks you need to take risks and consistently pursue your goals.
