The study program is a higher level study programme in the field of transport and communication science. The study program is implemented by the Institute of Aeronautics of RTU Faculty of Transport and Mechanical Engineering (FTME). To provide a high quality methodical control over the study programme content and implementation, the study programme is attached to the branch of mechanical engineering and transport. The study programme is implemented in cooperation with other structural units of RTU FTME.
The duration of studies is 4 years; the scope of the study programme is 192 CP.
The study program envisages the acquisition of theoretical study courses of fundamental nature and specialized study courses of narrow specialization, which are appropriate to the branch, as well as humanities and foreign languages. The contents of study programme study courses are regularly improved by completing the study process with the newest and most effective methods and principles of study process organization. Doctoral students work according to individual work plans developed for each academic year. Pedagogical work is an obligatory part of the plan. To acquire pedagogical skills and experience, the doctoral students of the study programme are involved in the process of teaching by lecturing separate subjects to bachelor students, supervising laboratory, practical and course works, checking and assessing study and examination works.
Doctoral students are offered to study abroad for different time periods as a result of which they get additional qualifications of different levels. Study courses of appropriate level and scope, which are acquired abroad, can be equated with and included in the study programme.
