FACULTY OF APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES

DEPARTMENT OF AIRCRAFT TECHNOLOGY ENGINEERS

NEW CURRICULUM

 

 

The new curriculum of our Department was decided by the Department Assembly on Feb. 22, 2016 and approved by the TEI Assembly on Nov. 29, 2016. 

The curriculum implementation is due at the beginning of the academic year 2017-2018. 

 Purpose and objectives of the Curriculum

The curriculum of our department generally focuses on and aims at training and qualifying our students in the entire range of the modern scientific areas of Aeronautics and specifically in the modules of aircraft systems, engines, structure, materials, aerodynamics, electronics, telecommunications (avionics), aircraft design and flight principles as well as aviation law and human factor.

The perception of the academic community of our department of the goals and objectives of our curriculum is expressed in our decisions about the planning of the professional rights of our graduates.

 

Learning Objectives of the Curriculum

The graduates will:

·                    Have proven knowledge and understanding of topics in the field of aircraft technology

 

·                    Be able to use and apply the knowledge they have acquired, displaying responsibility, ethics and respect for (cultural) diversity and the environment while performing their job.

 

·                    Be able to gather and interpret facts associated with their field of knowledge in order to form opinions that involve reflections regarding social, scientific or ethical issues.

 

·                    Be able to publish information, ideas, problems and their solutions both to the general public and professionals.

 

·                    Have developed the necessary skill of knowledge acquisition that will enable them to go to further studies with a considerable degree of autonomy.

 

The graduates of the Department of Aircraft Technology Engineering will have the ability to:

·                    Check, maintain and repair components or structural parts of the aircraft electronic systems

·                    Study, design and develop aircraft configurations, devices and systems

·                    Implement programs of applied research and development

·                    Check observance of technical specifications and application of principles and rules of quality control and quality assurance systems.

The overall curriculum is presented in the following table:

Before graduation students should pass 39 modules and effectively complete their graduation assignment and internship. 13 out of the total of the modules are courses of general background, 12 of them are courses of special knowledge base and 14 of them are specialty courses  (13 compulsory and 1 compulsory option). The modules distribution per level is presented in the table below:

The goal of the new curriculum is to ensure that students are taught the course content in the proper order. Consequently, the implementation of the pre-required courses system in the new curriculum only requires that students must first  pass courses of lower levels before registering for courses of higher levels. According to the TEI General Assembly Decision (  5/26-09-2013- 3rd topic), until the approval of the new syllabus of the TEI of Central Greece, the maximum number of  modules registered for each level of studies should correspond up to 38 credit units on all levels.

Furthermore, to facilitate the attendance of the courses  in the proper order, students are advised to attend them in the order that these appear  in the following table:
