Department of Aircraft Engineering and Operation of Aviation Equipment

Since 1963 the Department of Aircraft Engineering and Operation of Aviation Equipment has been teaching students majoring in Technical Operation of Aircraft and Engines and Aircraft and Helicopter Engineering. Students of the Department have their practical training at the leading aviation enterprises of the Russian Federation: airlines companies, aircraft factories, design bureaus, airports, where they work with the latest models of aviation technology. While studying students are also involved in research and design activities. Together with the teaching staff our students address urgent and challenging issues of modern aviation industry, participate in scientific conferences and engineering competitions. INRTU put efforts to provide the most comfortable conditions in the labs and leisure areas for students to develop their communication skills and fulfil their potential in engineering and creativity. All this allows them to develop perspective thinking skills, consolidate knowledge and abilities, strengthen skills, and in whole to prepare skilled professionals. Students who have shown interest in research activities can continue their studies in full-time or part-time graduate programs at the university.
