Aeronautical Technology—Aviation Maintenance (AVMB) (B.S.)

Students may continue their studies in aviation maintenance beyond the associate’s degree  to obtain a bachelor of science degree in aeronautical technology. The bachelor of science degree is designed for the maintenance technician with supervisory or management goals such as shop foreman, lead technician, director of maintenance and other leadership positions.

The additional courses will give the student background for leadership roles in the aviation industry. Courses enhance people skills and communications, both verbal and written. Additional math and computer skills are developed.

There are multiple opportunities for advanced education and training through aviation electives and advanced maintenance courses addressing the nondestructive testing of aviation parts and aircraft, and the use of advanced composites in the larger transport category, corporate, and military aircraft. This degree provides the best preparation for the maintenance technician looking for employment in these fields.
