The field of aviation has arisen, grown and developed, first and foremost, due to the development of aeronautical engineering.
The Aeronautical Engineering curriculum comprising two main specialities: Communication and Navigation Systems and Aircraft Engineering.
The study language of this programme is Estonian!
Aircraft Engineering speciality trains engineers who work with creating or maintaining high-tech solutions in the field of mechanics, mechatronics and electronics.
The skills and experience enable the respective specialist to work in other fields which require application of high-tech solutions to solve technical problems: automotive industry, rail transport etc.
During the course of studies the students of the speciality of Aircraft Engineering acquire the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that would enable them to understand the construction, operating principles and troubleshooting methods of aircraft systems, engines, airframes, and piloting and navigation devices.
The students also gain the knowledge of aerodynamics, of the design, structure and construction of aircraft, of different types of engines and their working principles, of avionics systems and their diagnostics, of safety systems, human factors and various legal acts to be followed in aviation.
