Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology offers Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Maintenance for students who are interested in responsibilities in repairs and maintenance of airplanes and aircraft systems on commercial and private aircraft. Students in the program can expect to receive training on the principles of aviation and the different systems that are utilized in order to keep the plane in functioning and flying order. Throughout the program, students will develop a practical understanding of the responsibilities of airplane support crews and the tasks of maintenance staff in care of specific and general parts of an aircraft.
Students take part in a curriculum which will display their understanding of aviation theory and aircraft maintenance and management. Some of the classes students will take include general aeronautics and applications, airframe structures and applications, mechanical and structural factors in aviation safety, and system safety management.
Following graduation, students will have demonstrated the necessary education and professional qualifications for responsibilities in aircraft maintenance and will be prepared for future studies in aircraft maintenance. Skills individuals have the capability to learn include the ability to demonstrate an understanding of aviation principles and the principles of aeronautic design needed for maintenance, to demonstrate critical thinking and communications skills necessary for roles in maintenance and management of aircraft, to demonstrate the ability to service, repair, and overhaul aviation electrical and hydraulic systems, and to demonstrate the ability to service and repair airframes, engines, and propellers on commercial and private propeller-based and jet-based aircraft.
