ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Avionics is a highly-advanced discipline that analyses the electronic systems used on modern aircraft, including the auto-pilot, navigation, communication, data systems and flight instruments. The Avionics Systems Engineering programme at KTK enables graduates to start a career as an aircraft avionics technician by learning to repair and maintain the electrical and electronic systems of airplanes and helicopters. Future avionics engineers study mathematics, physics, IT, engineering graphics, microprocessors, electronics, aircraft computers, wireless communications, navigation systems, etc. The knowledge gained is consolidated and further developed during practical training and internships, which last up to 20 weeks altogether and are conducted in three stages: introductory training is performed at KTK; aircraft technology and final internships are performed at partner companies. 

Students have the opportunity to study abroad under the Erasmus+ student mobility programme in higher education institutions of the EU, Norway and Turkey, as well as to perform Erasmus+ traineeships in foreign companies. You can find the full list of KTK partner institutions here

After graduation you will be able to work in Lithuanian and foreign civil aviation companies, military air force and home affairs system, air transport companies as aircraft continuing airworthiness maintenance specialists, as well as in government institutions responsible for flight safety assurance, airports and their units and other companies that require aeronautical / avionics engineers and technicians.

Students are awarded a Professional Bachelor's degree in Engineering upon completion of their studies and successful defense of graduation thesis. Graduates can continue their studies and obtain a master’s degree.
