DIRECT ENTRY ADMISSIONS INTO PGD/HND/PRE-HND PROGRAMMES AND ADMISSION SCREENING INTO ND PROGRAMMES FOR 2017/2018 ACADEMIC SESSION

GENERAL

The Air Force Institute  of Technology is a higher education institution engaged in imparting knowledge and skills to students using specialized facilities and multi-disciplinary approach; a centre of excellence for serious innovative research and development for the aerospace, aeronautical, aviation and allied industries/disciplines.

2.     Admissions into programmes offered in the Institute are open to the general public. Traditionally, admission into the Institute is gained through the JAMB UTME entry route. However, admissions could also be gained through direct entry into any of the Institute’s programmes other than the National Diploma programmes. To this end, applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for preliminary and direct entry admissions into the following programmes in the 2017/2018 Academic Session:

              a.     Pre-Higher National Diploma (Pre-HND) Programmes.
(1)      Aircraft Engineering Technology (Airframe/Power Plant Option).
(2)      Aircraft Engineering Technology (Avionics Option).
(3)      Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology.
(4)      Purchasing and Supply.
b.     Higher National Diploma (HND) Programmes.
(1)      Aircraft Engineering Technology (Airframe/Power Plant Option).
(2)      Aircraft Engineering Technology (Avionics Option).
(3)      Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology.
(4)      Purchasing and Supply.
c.     Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) Programmes.
              (1)      Aerospace Engineering (Aeromechanical Option).
(2)      Aerospace Engineering (Avionics Option).
(3)      Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

3.     The Pre-HND in Aircraft Engineering Technology Programme is a one-year orientation course specifically designed for candidates with ND in engineering fields other than aircraft engineering. The programme is meant to introduce students to aircraft engineering and also provide a good foundation for such students to further their studies in aviation related programmes.  Similarly, the other Pre-HND programmes are aimed at appropriate re-orientation as the case may be.

4.     The PGD in Aerospace Engineering at AFIT is a one-year programme that is specially designed to prepare candidates for one-year MSc programme in aerospace engineering at Cranfield University, United Kingdom (UK). Candidates, who on completion of the PGD programme, wish to enrol for the Masters Programme at Cranfield University, UK can choose to specialize in one of the following fields:

a.       MSc Aerospace Vehicle Design (Airframe and Airframe Systems Option).
b.       MSc Aerospace Vehicle Design (Avionics Systems Design Option).
c.       MSc Thermal Power.
d.       MSc Computation Fluid Dynamics.
e.       MSc Flight Dynamics.
