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.

The certification you will earn:
  • Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Technician Certificate
