Aeronautical Electronics

Aeronautical Electronics Engineering Program is intended to train technologists at the middle management level that 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 programs at university, thus meeting the requirement of middle management personnel.

  • Objectives of Programme
    • The teaching of fundamental principles of electronics and related modules with special emphasis on systems and teaching of necessary skills, tools and techniques to enable graduates to embark on careers in the electronics field.
    • Providing sufficient knowledge of management to enable graduates to communicate effectively.
