CURRICULAR GUIDE

Airframe Maintenance Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0757  (Effective Fall 1999 - Summer 2004)

Airframe maintenance technicians maintain aircraft in accordance with Federal
Aviation Regulations.  Airframe technicians perform a wide variety of repairs
and alterations to sheet metal and composite aircraft structures.  In
addition, they inspect and repair or replace complex aircraft components
associated with hydraulic/pneumatic, communication/navigation, fuel and flight
control systems.  Aviation maintenance technicians are employed throughout the
world maintaining aircraft for major air carriers, commuter airlines, air
freight operators, corporate flight departments, fixed base operators and a
variety of other specialized aviation businesses.  Not all courses in this
program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an
academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific coursework in mathematics.
