Profile of the Programme
The study programme Air Transport Technology (ATT) aims to prepare specialists in the wide range of the air operation, especially in areas such as air traffic, economy, safety and security of air transport, flight planning and monitoring, aircraft operation or aircraft maintenance. ATT study programme includes the following fields of study: *"Aircraft Maintenance technology" focused on the training of licensed aircraft maintenance personnel *"Aircraft Operation Technology" – focused on training of licensed aircraft operation personell (i.e. flight crews, air transport dispatcher, manager, ...) The degree to individual disciplines common first semester of science and engineering base, which has followed a different study of professional aviation courses to the needs of individual expertise. In the study branches Aircraft Maintenance Technology and Aircraft Operations Technology are included the theoretical modules required by aviation regulations for obtaining the appropriate licenses,which the students receive after completing the practical training which is no longer part of the study (at own expense) and passing exams at the Civil Aviation Authority.
