Digital technology is in widespread use within modern aircraft systems, for electronic instrument systems and other critical systems that require precision control and a high volume of data processing. This unit covers the digital techniques module of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance basic knowledge requirements syllabus. In this unit, you will develop knowledge of digital theory and application, including logic circuits and computer processing and integrated circuitry. You will also learn about typical electronic/digital aircraft instrumentation systems, electronic displays and how fibre optics are used in modern aircraft. You will also develop skills in the maintenance of digital systems, gaining hands-on practical experience with different types of components and system configurations, including precautions to take when handling electrostatic sensitive devices. This unit is delivered at Aviation Australia campuses by Aviation Australia staff in partnership with CQUniversity.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 12-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.
