After the completion of the studies in Aircraft Engineering it is possible to work as an aviation engineer or as a maintenance technician at an enterprise manufacturing or carrying out maintenance procedures on aircraft. [+]

Course Studies in Aeronautical Engineering in Europe 2017. What are you educated and trained to become? The field of aviation has arisen, grown and developed, first and foremost, due to the development of aviation engineering – due to technical solutions that enable to move around without any contact with the ground. Creating such technical solutions – designing, engineering, manufacturing and maintenance of aircraft therefore provides a format and content to everything taking place in aviation. The work of an aviation engineer comprises creation of high-tech solutions or maintenance procedures in the field of mechanics, mechatronics as well as 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. After the completion of the studies in Aircraft Engineering it is possible to work as an aviation engineer or as a maintenance technician at an enterprise manufacturing or carrying out maintenance procedures on aircraft. In addition to the work as an engineer at an enterprise designing and manufacturing manned or unmanned aerial vehicles, it is possible to apply the acquired knowledge of engineering in an aircraft maintenance enterprise: - doing aerodynamic analysis and strength calculations of the aircraft or for the structure repairs; making technical drawings; - planning the overhaul and repair operations; - carrying out daily maintenance procedures (inspection and repair of aircraft structures, analysis of system malfunctions and deviations). Working in this speciality requires the specialist to be well versed in on-board systems, have the courage to make decisions, have the planning ability, be meticulous in following the instruction manuals as well as possess good manual skills in handling special purpose appliances and tools. In order to take necessary corrective actions an aviation engineer needs vast specialist experience. They have to display responsible attitude to the quality of the maintenance procedures performed. The course for aviation engineers lasts for four years and the volume of studies is 240 ECTS credits. The study process falls into three phases: - Basic studies last for three semesters (90 ECTS). The course consists of lectures and practical training, and serves as the foundation for an academic degree course. The studies are carried out in co-operation with the University of Tartu and Estonian University of Life Sciences. - Basic aviation studies last for one semester (30 ECTS). Specialization begins after the completion of the course in basic aviation studies and falls into two stages: 1. Basic professional training and 2. Speciality training. Special courses (up to 120 ECTS) last for four semesters. The studies are carried out in co-operation with Tallinn University of Technology and the practical training in co-operation with different aviation enterprises and institutions in Estonia and abroad. To graduate from the Academy the students have to write a graduation thesis and pass the exams depending on the speciality chosen. The language of instruction at EAVA is the Estonian language except for the joint courses offered to ERASMUS students which are carried out in the English language. [-]
