About the Program
Airplanes are complex mechanical marvels, utilizing several different disciplines of science, engineering and mathematics. A degree in aeronautical engineering technology will provide you with the skills and knowledge to create and maintain these machines as well as improve the quality of life for those who depend on and use them. Over the course of the program you will learn how to design, manufacture, maintain, operate and support all varieties of aerospace vehicles.
Disciplines covered in the AET program include applied aeronautical structures and materials, electrical systems, powerplants, vehicle systems and design. A Bachelor of Science degree in AET will optionally provide you with an opportunity to take the Airframe and Powerplant Certification exam.
The Aeronautical Engineering Technology major is part of the Aeronautical Engineering Technology program. The Aeronautical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
