Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) with B.Sc. Aeronautics-Mechanical

Overview

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is a three-year full time course approved by Director General of Civil Aviation, Government of India & B.Sc. Aeronautics is a three years Degree Program Affiliated to University of Mumbai. Both the programs are divided into six semesters of six months each & conducted simultaneously. The integrated program AME with B.Sc. Aeronautics in Mechanical Stream get trained in following:
a) Maintenance related to Airframe: Performing scheduled/ Non-scheduled maintenance, making emergency repairs, maintenance related to air frame viz. mechanical and Aircraft hydraulic systems, Air Conditioning System, Aircraft Pressurization System, Aircraft Landing Gear System, Aircraft structure, Aircraft Pneumatic System etc.
b) Maintenance related to Aircraft Engine, Aircraft Fuel System, Aircraft Oil System, Engine Starting & Ignition System, Fire Protection System etc

Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility: HSC 10+2 of MSBHSC or equivalent of any other Government state board with minimum 45% marks in aggregate (40% for reserve category) with PCM & English OR Diploma (10 + 3) awarded by MSBTE or equivalent by any other Government body in following branches of Engineering – Mechanical, Electrical and  Electronics and Telecommunication.

Objective & Scope of the Program

This unique combination of 3 years integrated program makes students eligible for multiple job opportunities including jobs which compulsory requires a minimum of three years degree as an eligibility criterion in Govt. as well as the private sector.
Aircraft maintenance engineering courses can be pursued with our Institute which is approved by DGCA Govt. of India. AME covers mechanical stream which consists of heavy aircraft, jet engine, light aircraft, piston engines and avionics stream consists of electrical system, instrument system, radio navigation.

The B.Sc. Aeronautics is affiliated to one of the top-notch University of Mumbai. B.Sc. Aeronautics degree is designed to enable the student to acquire the necessary qualification to enter into the job market in any field of Aviation such as Traffic Control, Crew & Manpower scheduling, In-Flight Service Department, Security, Civil Works Department, Line and Major Maintenance Department of Engineering etc. It is also possible that the graduates (B.Sc. Aeronautics) enter the field of Non- Technical Streams in the Aviation Industry like Commercial Dept., In-Flight Service Dept., Ground Support Dept., Security Dept., etc. It is therefore imperative that such a degree course would help the students to make their career in Aviation. All government & private aviation organizations and aircraft & spacecraft manufacturing and testing units generally require the trained candidates.

How the Training is imparted to AME with B.Sc Aeronautics Student by Us ?

During the training, lessons are imparted for the service and maintenance of aircraft so as to ensure flight safety. A two-year full-time program of  Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is being offered by Wingsss College of Aviation Technology, Pune. The Institute is duly approved by the DGCA, Government of India and has one of the best Infrastructure facility in India , some of which includes Practical Hands-on Training on LEARJET 25D, FOKKER F 27, HUL 26 PUSHPAK & BELL 47 HELICOPTER, Dedicated Training Laboratories of Electrical Labs, Electronic Labs, Aircraft Instrument Labs, and Radio Navigation as well as Aircraft Battery Shops and Aircraft Composite Structure Shop. Different Types OF Engines Viz. MIG 21 A/C – (R-11F2S-300 ENGINE) , TURBOJET ENGINE (AVON MK-207) (RR) (DISMENTEL), TURBOSHAFT ENGINE (TV2-117A), TURBOJET ENGINE (IL-SO-3-W), Continental C90-8F & Helicopter Engine. The Only Institute in western India, having Excellent Infrastructure Including Aircraft Hanger, Workshop, and Well-Stocked Library to supports teaching and learning. We are among the few institutes that offer training on heavy aircraft and jet engines.

How we develop professionals ?

In the beginning, the training focus is on basic information about aircraft rules and regulations which then cover general engineering and maintenance. The subjects taught include aerodynamics or theory of flight, metallurgy, electronics, handling sophisticated equipment and practical work in machine rooms and on aircraft engines. In the later semesters, the study focuses on specific areas like light aircraft, heavy aircraft, piston engines, jet engines or helicopters.

Apart from this, trainees are required to undergo structural aircraft type courses in mechanical or avionics stream. After successful completion of the training program, the trainees will get a basic aircraft maintenance training certificate. This is followed by an examination conducted by the DGCA and University of Mumbai.

Those who qualify the examination will be awarded a license and B.Sc Degree in Aeronautics. The defined duration of the program is sufficient for a candidate to appear for the aircraft maintenance licensing examinations as well as Degree in Aeronautics. After getting the DGCA- AME license, one is required to obtain regulatory license or approval on a type of aircraft. If it is an Airbus or Boeing, one has to obtain an individual license to service that particular type of aircraft. Aircraft maintenance engineers are authorized to inspect the aircraft and certify its fitness.

Training facilities

Aircraft maintenance engineering courses can be pursued with our Institute which is approved by DGCA Govt. of India. AME covers mechanical stream which consists or heavy aircraft, jet engine, light aircraft, piston engines, and avionics stream consists of an electrical system, instrument system, radio navigation.

We have tie-up with Air India & Go First Airlines for practical hands-on Training for Our A.M.E. Students.  The training is normally conducted after Semester II and before Semester III of the program.

Job opportunities

An Aircraft Maintenance Engineer is a licensed person who is responsible for releasing the aircraft in Airworthy conditions. AME license is issued by Director General of Civil Aviation, (DGCA) Government of India, New Delhi.

An aircraft maintenance engineer is responsible for ensuring an aircraft operates properly and safely.

No civil aircraft registered in India can be operated without being certified as Airworthy by Aircraft Maintenance Engineer holding AME license in respective category.

No civil aircraft can fly without Certificate of Release to Service (CRS) signed by AME.

To Provide capable and trained persons to Aviation Industry.

To fulfill the minimum academic qualification requirement so as to enable the graduates to compete for higher positions in the Aviation Industry & other competitive examination.

The syllabus of B.Sc. (Aeronautics) degree is designed to enable the student to acquire the necessary qualification to enter into Job market in any field of Aviation such as Traffic Control, Crew & Manpower scheduling, In-Flight Service Department, Security, Civil Works Department, Line and Major Maintenance Department of Engineering etc.

It is also possible that the graduates (B.Sc. Aeronautics) enter the field of NonTechnical Streams in the Aviation Industry like Commercial Dept., In-Flight Service Dept., Ground Support Dept., Security Dept., etc. It is therefore imperative that such a degree course would help the students to make their career in Aviation.

All government & private aviation organizations and aircraft & spacecraft manufacturing and testing units generally require the trained candidates.

Aviation industry offers challenging career and excellent growth opportunities along with competitive salary.

After the completion of degree in B.Sc. Aeronautics candidates are eligible for not only in design & production of aircraft and spacecraft but also in turbine, high-speed trains (bullet trains), flying gadgets and turbine production & design.
