This program aims to provide not only the four-year degree to complement the skills but a specific focus.

Choose from among three areas of concentration:

  • Flight: for those students who wish to combine a maintenance background with the qualifications of a commercial pilot.
  • Maintenance Management: for those who wish to use their maintenance skills as a platform for advancing into a management position in one of the many aviation maintenance environments.
  • Safety Science: this area of concentration combines both industrial and aviation-specific safety courses which prepare students for a rewarding career path.

Each area of concentration is designed to complement the FAA’s Airframe and Powerplant certification, which collectively serve to bolster our students’ academic credentials.  Students can obtain additional industry recognized certifications through the minor in Avionics Line Maintenance. Through this program students can test for the FCC General Radio Telephone Operators License (GROL) and the NCATT Aircraft Electronics Technician (AET) certificate. Both further help our students integrate themselves into the workforce.
