Hello Darshan,
Welcome to CareerGuide.com!!!
Thanks for visiting and proposing your query to us.

Well thats a good thing to hear that you have been thinking of making your career in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering.Aircraft maintenance engineering is not a degree or a diploma
course, but a training programme. On completion of the training, a licence is
issued by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

The aviation sector is growing at a rapid pace. New sophisticated
aircrafts are being deployed and more air routes are being opened. The open sky
policy has encouraged new operators to launch their airlines and feeder lines
are becoming viable. Besides our large network of domestic airlines several
international airlines now operate through India. During the training, lessons
are imparted for service and maintenance
of aircraft so as to ensure flight safety.


Students who wish to work in the aviation industry can study
aerospace or aeronautical engineering at the B.Tech. level or study aircraft
maintenance engineering (AME).

Aeronautical or aerospace engineering deals with the design and
manufacture of aircraft while AME trains one for servicing the aircraft.

In the aviation industry, aeronautical engineers, aircraft maintenance
engineers and pilots are indispensable, though their duties are different.

The industry has three main areas-aircraft design and
manufacturing, maintenance and flying. Aeronautical or aerospace engineering
involves the application of engineering principles and technical know-how to
design, construct and operate an aircraft. Aircraft maintenance engineers are
responsible for keeping the aircraft in perfect flying conditions. They are
involved in the repair and maintenance of aircraft.

A three-year aircraft maintenance engineering licence training course is being offered by several institutes approved by the DGCA. Those who have passed the +2 examinations with 50 per cent marks in aggregate in physics, chemistry and mathematics or a three-year diploma course in any branch of engineering or B.Sc. degree holders after Plus Two with maths, physics and chemistry are
eligible for admission to AME training courses. There is no gender discrimination in admission. Boys and girls can seek admission. This training course in rigorous and only a few institutes offer training on heavy aircraft and jet engines. Total training cost will be around Rs.1.5 lakh. To become an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) you need to obtain a licence from the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
The AME (Associate Membership Exam) certification is not a degree but a specialised licensing programme for servicing and maintenance of aircraft and only those institutes approved by the DGCA- www.dgca.nic.in can impart training in this field to prepare you for the AME exam conducted by the
Aeronautical Society of India - www.aesi.org

Four-year B.Tech. and five-year M.Tech. dual degree programmes
are available in aerospace or aeronautical engineering for Plus Two students
with mathematics, physics, chemistry, biotechnology or computer science or
biology as subjects.

Colleges:

Aircraft maintenance engineering courses can be pursued at the
DGCA-approved institutes. In south India, the following institutes offer AME
training. DGCA-approval of these institutes should be ensured before admission.
AME covers mechanical stream which consists or heavy aircraft, jet engine,
light aircraft, piston engines and avionics stream consists of electrical
system, instrument system, radio navigation.
