Masters degree for General EdA&P License, 3 years experience for Aviation Maintenance courses

The Associate of Applied Science/Associate of Occupational Science in Aviation Maintenance Technology program provides a graduate with the education and practical skills needed for a position in today’s aviation industry. The program will provide the student a foundation of general education courses, technical skills, and aircraft systems knowledge. The degree program enhances critical thinking skills and provides the student with the opportunity to develop strong writing, mathematical, science, and communication skills, which may lead to greater opportunities for professional growth in the competitive aviation profession. Students learn the specialized skills necessary to work on structures, powerplants, aircraft systems, flight controlled systems, and engine systems, and become eligible and prepared for certification by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as an Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Mechanic. While in school, students gain valuable hands-on experience in the hangar while studying the General, Airframe, and Powerplant subjects required by the FAA. During lab instruction, students are trained using FAA-approved equipment used throughout the aviation industry, and students learn to repair and maintain radial engines, reciprocating powerplants, modern turbo props, and jet engines. Students often work on carburetors, magnetos, turbo chargers, and other complex equipment found on aircraft. The aviation industry, as well as other major repair and overhaul companies, desire not only the skills of our graduates, but also the professional skills, attention to detail, commitment to safety, ability to follow procedures and document processes, interpersonal soft skills, and critical thinking skills that we teach within the program. The program concludes with a Capstone course, which guides students in preparing for the FAA certification examinations.
