AMTech proudly unveils a groundbreaking achievement in vocational education with the publication of a detailed curriculum designed for aspiring mechatronics technicians in the aviation aerospace industry. This curriculum, a central component of the AMTech project, addresses the identified skills gaps and competences outlined in the earlier transnational need analysis.

Developed through collaborative efforts among project partners, the curriculum has undergone rigorous piloting within educational settings, garnering positive feedback from target groups. This achievement marks a significant step towards equipping vocational education and training centers with the resources needed to foster competences and skills essential for the success of future mechatronic technicians in the aviation industry.

The AMTech curriculum reflects a balanced mix of vocational skills aligned with emerging job roles and key competences within the aviation sector, providing a comprehensive framework to prepare individuals for fulfilling careers in aviation aerospace mechatronics. The curriculum is structured into four main pedagogical areas:

1.Aviation & Aerospace, education and learning objectives:

  • To provide students with a comprehensive understanding of aviation technology, aircraft maintenance, and repair procedures; to develop the necessary professional competencies required for successful employment as an aircraft technician in the aviation and aerospace industries.

2.Electrical & Mechatronics, education and learning objectives:

  • To equip learners with the necessary knowledge and skills required to maintain, repair and troubleshoot electrical and mechatronic systems in aircraft. The training will enable them to understand and work with various systems such as avionics, power generation, lighting, communication, and navigation systems.

3.Computer Science & Avionics, education and learning objectives:

  • To equip the technicians with the necessary knowledge, skills, and competencies to effectively maintain, repair, and troubleshoot aircraft computer and avionics systems. This training will provide the technicians with the ability to identify, diagnose and resolve issues in avionics systems that use computer-based technologies.

4.Safety & Operations, education and learning objectives:

  • To provide comprehensive training to aircraft technicians in safety and operations, covering all aspects of aircraft maintenance, inspection, repair, and troubleshooting. The curriculum aims to equip technicians the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure the safety and efficiency of aircraft operations, minimize the risk of accidents, and comply with regulatory requirements.

The curriculum comes also with six short training modules that complements the content of the aforementioned and can be used by education and training providers as support material of their teaching and lessons.

1. How to deliver digital training content through a digital training platform2. Useful resources for VET professionals and trainers3. How to engage students in online training4. Theoretical training in the drone industry based on STEM subjects in VET education5. Practical application of STEM in VET: a guide for trainers and students6. Introduction to UAS Technology and its future landscapes
