Aviation Engineering Technology
The Aviation Engineering Technology (AET) specialization is designed to prepare students for aviation careers with organizations and companies that engage in the manufacture or maintenance of aviation components or which provide aviation products or services.
The AET specialization provides an interdisciplinary and practical approach to aviation and engineering technology and their application to the aviation environment. Its intent is to further develop or supplement an individual who has an FAA airframe and power plant (A&P) license or a strong technical or vocational background. A benefit of the program is that a student can utilize the educational background in other technology disciplines, such as manufacturing, production, or general management. The curricular focus is on aviation, engineering technology, management, technical systems operations, and safety.
