WHAT IS AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURING AND MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING ?

The aircraft manufacturing and maintenance engineering programme deals with testing, overhauling, construction, manufacturing and maintenance and repair of aircrafts and their components. While pursuing the course in Aircraft Manufacturing and Maintenance Engineering, the students would learn how to operate and maintain the helicopters and the aircrafts in terms of operation of engines, its structure and systems. They would also be taught how to use engine trend analysis so that they could plan well ahead in advance for regular inspections. Training would be imparted about the maintenance of various components as this will help in the reduction of downtime of flying vehicles. On completion of the course, the students would know about the civil aviation rules and regulations related to the light and heavy aircraft

SCOPE OF AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURING AND MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING

According to the latest data released by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the growth in the aviation sector is evident from the fact that during the January to July 2016 period, 560.87 lakh passengers were ferried by the domestic airlines as against 455.95 lakh during the corresponding period of previous year. This shows a surge of approximately 23.01 %. Reports in the media claim that by 2020, the demand for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers will increase to more than 20,000 each in USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, East European countries, South East Asian countries. The magnitude of these numbers clearly shows that the demand for the aviation engineers is bound to grow. They would play a vital role in the maintenance and repair of the aircraft. With the technological advancements taking place rapidly, the aviation engineers would also be responsible for automation, mechanics, aerodynamics, materials and service. Also, the growth in the aviation is sector is evident in wake of the government’s open sky policy. The coming days will see a surge in the demand of aircraft and maintenance engineers owing to the large network of airlines, which operate domestically and internationally.
