Mechanical Technology Concentration

Mechanical Technology Concentration

LETU's mechanical engineering technology courses prepare you to work with aircraft and aircraft systems.

What makes this degree different from a full engineering degree? Aircraft Systems is an applied degree based on the A&P maintenance technician curriculum, and involves significantly less math and theory. This degree in aviation technology prepares you to work as an aircraft engineer for a company like Cessna Aircraft. From a practical prospective, you’ll know how theory and mechanical systems work together to make a working aircraft.

Certification you will earn:

  • Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Technician Certificate


A few career options:

Put your Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Certificate and aeronautical engineering skills to use as an airplane maintenance engineer, as well as a:

  • Aircrafts systems engineer
  • Design engineer
  • Maintenance facility engineer
  • Aviation engineering technologist
  • Aircraft maintenance technician
  • Integration engineer
  • Systems engineer
