Specializations:

Computer designing of AE and PP

The object of instruction is the computer-aided design of aircraft gas-turbine engines, power units, assembly units as well as control systems created on their basis. Students get classical knowledge in the area of AE and PP emphesizing the knowledge and application of contemporary computer technologies.

Computer diagnostics of aircraft and automobile engines

The creation and operation of systems of computer diagnostics of aircraft, tank and automobile engines, and also gas-turbine drives is one of the most claimed in Ukraine and beyond its limits direction for training students. .The Department's laboratory of engines diagnostics successfully works in this direction. It performs orders of the leading aircraft-engine and gas transport enterprises of Ukraine, Russia and distant foreign countries including USA.
