Aero-Mechanical Engineering Tech Prospects

Letter to Students


Dear Prospective Students--

Thanks for your interest in the Aeronautical-Mechanical Engineering Technology Concentration at LeTourneau University. The area of aeronautical-mechanical engineering technology blends the principles of mechanical engineering technology with the principles of aircraft systems, preparing graduates for an exciting career in the aviation industry, developing mechanical systems.

 Engineering Technology graduates with the Aeronautical -Mechanical Concentration use mathematics and science, particularly related to mechanical components, to develop various aircraft mechanical systems and structures. LeTourneau's B.S. in engineering technology degree with an aeronautical-mechanical concentration is designed to prepare you to apply the principles you will learn to provide for the needs of society, specifically involving mechanical systems in the aviation industry. However, since the program includes a broad base of mechanical courses, you will be prepared to work in many other fields as well.

All students in the aeronautical-mechanical engineering technology concentration have coursework in statics, dynamics, thermodynamics, strength of materials, machine design, fluid mechanics, aviation concepts, aircraft systems, airframe electrical, aircraft instruments, and avionics. You'll have the opportunity to use modern equipment in the labs, to work on projects for national competitions, and to be part of a design team that develops a system from initial proposal to layout, fabrication, testing, and reporting.

A bachelor's degree in engineering technology (B.S.E.T.) with an aeronautical-mechanical concentration provides the foundation that you will need to enter many different career fields. Graduates of our program have job titles such as: mechanical engineer, systems engineer, sales engineer, manufacturing engineer, and service engineer. It is our goal that our graduates make a real contribution to their profession and society, and bring glory to God through their professional and personal lives.

I encourage you to visit the campus to see our facilities and to meet our faculty and students.

May the Lord bless you in your future.
