      Have you tried looking abroad? I’m an undergraduate (foreign student) studying BS Avionics engineering at the Indiana Aerospace University in the Philippines and while it may not be the best in the Philippines, they teach an exceptional amount of knowledge for the course I’m studying. Plus the tuition fees are not that bad. An estimate would be US$500 per semester. There are other cheaper institutions here just in case you’re willing to consider.
