The aviation and space sector continues to develop faster than ever. Recently, we witnessed the initiation of many projects related to unmanned air taxies, flying cars, the establishment of colonies on the moon and touristic travel to the Moon. In the aviation and space industry, where high technology is used, many new projects that will facilitate human life and enable to discover the secret of the universe are expected to start soon. In this context, we would like to see young people who are interested in aviation and space issues, who want to take part and contribute to this historical journey, at ISTE.
In the Aviation Management Department, the required aviation courses (Airline Management, Hazardous Substances, Flight Performance, Operational Performance, Meteorology, Aviation Safety and Security) and management courses that will add information to the managerial skills of our students (Business Management , Marketing Principles, Customer Relations, Economics) are given.
Foreign language is very important in the international arena in the air transport industry. With this awareness, a total of 910 hours of English education is given during the four-year education period in Aviation Management Department, and a total of 112 hours of German / Japanese lessons for 4 semesters starting from the third year in order to enable students to learn a second foreign language. Theoretical and applied trainings related to the department are given in Iskenderun Technical University Central Campus.
Students have to do an domestic or international internship for 30 working days. From the Department of Aviation Management, 25 students in 2014 and 21 students in 2015 did internships in various aviation companies in Europe within the scope of the Erasmus internship program. The department also has an education agreement with Zilina University in Slovakia within the scope of Erasmus+.
Department of Avionics, where the electrical and electronics systems of aircraft are taught theoretically in detail, is a part of the Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Theoretical learning is supported by practical training including testing, maintenance, and repair applications. The students are trained based on international standards to have the abilities of staff who can act in all kinds of maintenance and repair of the aircraft. With a high growth rate and investment amount, aviation has become an attractive sector with the highest employment rate for graduates.
Graduates of the Department of Avionics, who complete their education with a four-year undergraduate program, will have received all the necessary technical courses at the end of four years and will have had a wide knowledge of the sector with the various elective course contents offered. Accompanied by the English courses of high quality, the need for English language-speaking staff is being met. Students of the Department of Avionics, which are accepted with the quantitative score, are educated in Turkish. The department, that follow the Formal Education format, is placed in Iskenderun Technical University Central Campus.
Airframe and Powerplant Maintenance
Aviation is a sector that requires multidisciplinary work. Today, aircraft and spacecraft have high-tech body and engine structures. Developing technology reveals the need for expert technical staff. Purpose of Aircraft Maintenance and Repair Department; institutions or organizations concerned with aviation maintenance personnel to meet the needs of necessary knowledge and skills with the air vehicle is to train maintenance staff.
Aircraft Maintenance and Repairment Department is a department where detailed knowledge of maintenance practices, piston engines, aircraft structures, aircraft material and equipment information, gas turbine engines, aircraft maintenance terminology, aircraft hydraulic and pneumatic systems expertise is learned and at the same time, it is a department where the basic theoretical courses of the works such as inspection, maintenance and repair of the learned structures and systems are supported by practical trainings.
Graduateds of Aircraft Maintenance and Repairment Department can work in many areas such as aircraft maintenance and repair centers of civil aviation organizations, institutions that produces aircraft parts, defense industry. They carry out maintenance and repair works in the aircrafts' body, structural components, engine and engine-related systems in the maintenance hangars of airports and airline companies. Graduateds of this department can work as an aircraft maintenance technician in aviation related institutions / organizations such as Turkish Airlines, Turkish Air Force, Air Supply Maintenance Centers, myTECHNIC, TUSAŞ (Turkish Aviation and Space Industry), ASELSAN, TEI and Pegasus.
The Aerospace Engineering program aims to graduate qualified engineers in the design, production and development of all kinds of manned and unmanned aircraft used in civil and military aviation. In the department, expertise areas are aerodynamics, structural analysis and design of aircraft, aircraft systems, avionics, aircraft engine design, rocket technology, atmospheric physics, flight dynamics and control.
Graduates of the Aerospace Engineering can be employed in the areas such as defence industry companies, aircraft and helicopter maintenance and repair and design companies or in the military maintenance and repair centers, rocket and satellite industry, and all national and international organizations in the aviation and space industry.
Aerospace Engineering Department accepts students score in quantitative section. The department, whose language of instruction is Turkish, has opportunities for abroad education and internship (Erasmus +). The department, whose education is formal education, has a 4-year education period. Theoretical and applied trainings related to the department are given in Iskenderun Technical University central campus.
