Aircraft Maintenance Engineering


Bachelor of Engineering in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is a four year Aeronautical Engineering course. Aircraft maintenance engineers are responsible for keeping the aircraft in perfect flying conditions. They are involved in the repair and maintenance of aircraft. Course deals with the design and manufacture of aircraft while AME trains one for servicing the aircraft.

The aircraft manufacturing and maintenance engineering programme manages testing, redesiging, development, assembling and support and repair of flying machines and their segments. They would likewise be encouraged how to utilize motor pattern investigation with the goal that they could prepare ahead of time for normal assessments. Preparing would be granted about the support of different parts as this will help in the decrease of downtime of flying vehicles. On fulfillment of the course, the understudies would think about the common aeronautics principles and directions identified with the light and substantial aircraft
