diploma in aeronautical electronics engineering
bridge to higher engineering programmes
With the current technological advances it is imperative that the Aeronautical Electronics
Engineering curriculum be reviewed every two years to conform to local and global trends. This
includes the new extensive use of satellite technology with the attendant digital communication
systems such as transfer of speech and data.
Aeronautical Electronics Engineering Programme is intended therefore, to train technologists at
the middle management level who will not only confidently install, maintain, repair, service,
inspect and carry out all necessary tasks on ground based aviation equipment, but all other
electronic systems as well.
Hence, the market for the graduate is not only aviation but other
related electronics industries. This qualification is a bridge to enter higher engineering
programmes at university, thus meeting the requirement of middle management personnel. The
committee endeavoured to put all the relevant elements required to ensure graduates are in
step with current local and global trends and advances in electronics.
