This blog will provide all the information related to the scope of avionics engineering in Pakistan. Furthermore  this blog will provide assistance to students who have interest in the field of aerospace/ avionics. Avionics is not among the very famous professions in Pakistan so there is one thing I would like to suggest  is if you are really interested in this field then opt this discipline, you will get a job for sure. However, if you are opting this just to be a part of discipline that sound very cool and tempting then this is not the first choice for you.

Avionics engineering
Scope of Avionics engineering in Pakistan

What is Avionics engineering:

Avionics engineering is a sub field of Aeronautical engineering and deals with electronic systems that are used on aircraft, artificial satellites and spacecrafts. Basically it deals with the systems that are obligatory in order for the plane to work seamlessly. In simple words  avionics deals with the design, development, testing and repairs of electronics and communication systems in the machinery that can fly in Air and Space.

What exactly do Avionics engineers do:

Avionics engineers work in the aerospace industry. Their work encompasses tasks related to designing and programming electrical systems on board aircraft, spacecraft, and satellites. Avionics engineers are responsible for providing computer system support for all communication, navigation and guidance systems and performing testing to ensure that those systems are working properly also comes under the category of avionics engineer responsibility. In simple words avionics engineer is one who is skilled on avionics systems of aircraft like communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft in order to perform different individual functions. His sole function is to maintain these systems, introduce new systems and so on.

Eligibility criteria of Avionics engineering:

  • Minimum 60% marks in Matriculation
  • Minimum 60% Marks in FSc Pre-engineering or Equivalent
  • Entry Test
