Aerospace Technology is an exciting field of study that prepares graduates for entry-level positions in the aerospace and aeronautics industry. Graduates also will qualify for many applied technology jobs such as testing, fabrication, assembly, repair and manufacturing.

The Aerospace Technology Associate in Science degree is a two-year program that consists of 64 credit hours. The 43-credit Aerospace Technician College Credit Certificate (CCC) and the 17-credit Structural Assembly Technician CCC are shorter term program options. The degree and certificates are limited access, with a specialized application process. Students may choose from a morning option that begins each Fall Term or an evening schedule that start each Spring. The two related certificate programs described in the accordion below offer courses that are also embedded in and can count toward the A.S. degree.

Students will learn basic soldering skills, wire wrapping, potting, crimping, cabled lacing and repair, troubleshooting and diagnosing electrical circuits and how to assemble, operate, inspect and test fluid systems.

Program participants also will learn advanced concepts and skills allowing them to create a structural fabrication project per drawings and specifications, demonstrate knowledge of specialized tools and devices, accurately read blueprints, understand geometric dimensioning and tolerances, as well as identify precision measuring and test equipment.
