Global aviation growth is expected to grow at a very fast pace in the coming years. ICAO reported that in 2014 more than 3 billion passengers were carried around the world. Aviation provides a lot of career opportunities and several ways of specialization. Most engineers can break into aviation at any stage if they are properly on-boarded. This course can be such an opportunity.

Airport engineering topics are not fully covered in faculties to the same extent as Power, Telecommunications, Highways, Water or Industrial.

The next coming few years opportunities in aviation are not only wider, but exciting and accessible to many.
