Airframe and Powerplant Maintenance

Program: Airframe and Powerplant Maintenance

Degree Type: Certificate
 

The curriculum is designed to attract students who desire to learn about technology as it relates to business rather than from a scientific perspective.

The maintenance technician keeps the aircraft in peak operating condition by performing scheduled maintenance, making repairs and conducting inspections as required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Students in the Aerospace Technology Program are expected to pursue aerospace technology courses on a continuous basis. The order of course progression may vary depending on when the student enters the program. Special course scheduling may be necessary to ensure continuity of student training between the academic and technical components. These schedules must be approved by the program director. Students who choose not to pursue the Associate Degree may enroll in the Certificate program to prepare for the FAA license. The technical course requirements are the same as for the Degree, but the academic courses (English, Speech, etc.) are omitted. As with the degree curriculum, course scheduling may vary; depending on student load and need.
