Iran's Isfahan university launches avionics program
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 12/Trend M. Moezzi
A master's degree program in avionics architecture at the Isfahan University of Technology have given the province a key role in designing 100- to 150-seat passenger planes.
All research having to do with the aviation electronics for building the new planes will be done at the Isfahan University of Technology, Mehr news agency reports.
The university offers the first avionic architecture master's program in Iran, all part of a plan to create the infrastructure and expertise needed for building passenger planes.
So far, six students have been accepted into the master's program. Iran's fleet of passenger planes is an aging one and international sanctions against the country have made it impossible to buy brand new planes for the world's manufacturers or to even get the spare parts they need.
