For those students who already completed AME in recognized institutions in India, a Lateral Entry into the 2nd or 3rd year of B.Eng. (Aircraft Systems) is offered in institutions of repute abroad. This is an advantage to the students who may then take up one more year of study and get B.Eng. (Hons) in Aerospace Engineering. During the course of their studies, they can also take up examinations in different papers for clearing EASA at these institutions which are authorized EASA centres and the exams fees are also lower.
