Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.
Aviation studies the practical aspects of machine-based flight. Students of this subject may study airplane design, flight test protocols or other aspects of heavier-than-air aircraft. Later jobs in this field include airline pilot, aircraft engineer and safety inspector.
Estonia is among other things known for its forests (they make up almost half of the territory) and for being the only country in Europe with almost total 4G network coverage. Estonia provides high-level and internationally recognized education, and many universities in the country offer degree programs in English.

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. [+]
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. ...

The specialist in Aviation Management bears responsibility for the management and development of the company or of its subunits. [+]
The specialist in Aviation Management bears responsibility for the management and development of the company or of its subunits. The aim of their work is to ensure the coordinated and smooth functioning of all of its subunits thus facilitating the functioning of the whole company in its entirety. During their studies the students of the speciality of Aviation Management learn about the work organisation of different aviation companies. In theoretical subject courses the students are given the necessary theoretical background:General subjects in aviation: Basics of Aviation Safety, Aviation Meteorology, Aerodynamics, Aircraft Structures, Operational Procedures and Flight Planning, etc. General business related courses during which the students focus on organisation of aviation activities: Basics of Aviation Company Customer Service, Marketing, Basics of Economic Accountancy, - Aviation and Environmental Protection, Basics of Logistics, etc. ...

After successfully passing the theoretical knowledge examinations and rating flights the pilot-trainees receive the Commercial Pilot Licence/Instrument Rating (CPL(A)/IR). [+]
The standard period of study is four years. The training course of aeroplane piloting is based on the programme developed pursuant to the Joint Aviation Requirements – Flight Crew Licensing (JAR-FCL 1). During the first two years the main focus is on basic aviation studies and the last two years are devoted to acquiring the theoretical knowledge of piloting followed by flying training.
In flying training the aircraft used are the one-engine Cessna-172 and the multi-engine Piper Navajo. Part of the flying training takes place on the computer based simulator - FNPT II/MCC (flight and navigation procedures and multi-crew cooperation trainer). At the initial stage of flying practice the students learn the basic phases of a flight (take-off, level flight, turns, landing, etc), acquire the skills in en-route flying in visual flight conditions and get acquainted with the principles of instrument flight. The theoretical and ground preparation continues simultaneously with flying training. ... [-]
During their studies the students of the speciality of Aviation Communication and Navigation Systems Management (the technicians and engineers-to-be) learn different aviation related disciplines, physics and mathematics. [+]
Air traffic control and dissemination of necessary information takes place by aviation communication systems which ensure safe and smooth flow of air traffic in the air space.
The navigation systems provide information on an aircraft's position and enable precise navigation during the whole flight – from its take-off from the departure aerodrome to the landing at the destination aerodrome. Surveillance equipment and systems are used for the surveillance of the aircraft and their traffic in the air. The most traditional surveillance devices are radars but, alongside, new technologies are taken into use as well – ADS-B and MLAT systems.
During their studies the students of the speciality of Aviation Communication and Navigation Systems Management (the technicians and engineers-to-be) learn different aviation related disciplines, physics and mathematics. They acquire speciality knowledge of electrical engineering and radio technology, electronics, information technology, data processing and of many other fields. During the whole course of studies the practical skills in the management of the systems, the ability to evaluate technical parameters and the skills in testing the devices and equipment are developed. ...

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: [+]
In the speciality of Air Traffic Services it is possible to specialize to become an Air Traffic Control Officer (ATCO) whose task is to ensure regular and smooth air traffic in the air space of the country. Air Traffic Control Officers are responsible for arranging safe and efficient air traffic. They manage en-route traffic, help pilots pass other aircraft, find a safe route through the fog or stormy weather and, finally, land safely at the aerodrome. Depending on their rating ATCOs work in different air traffic control units. The studies of the speciality of Air Traffic Services are organised by the Academy Air Traffic Service Training Department. All of the members of our teaching staff have experience in real air traffic control. Our basic aim is to support and develop motivated students in acquiring the profession of an Air Traffic Control Officer.The standard period of study is four years. In the study process the standards of Estonian professional higher education and those of international aviation are followed. The acquiring of the specific procedures and working methods of air traffic control as well as the skills in radio communication takes place in specially equipped laboratories, i.e. in computer-based simulators. In two recent years the practice has taken place in air traffic control units of air traffic service providers. The already practising Air Traffic Control Officers return to the Academy now and then to take the required refresher or continuing education courses.The course for aviation engineers lasts for four years and the...
