The Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Systems Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical Systems Engineering Technology prepares graduates to enter careers in the design, installation, manufacturing, testing, evaluation, technical sales and maintenance of aeronautical/aerospace systems.
Students gain technical expertise in engineering materials, statics, strength of materials, applied aerodynamics, applied propulsion and electronics. Graduates will have strengths in the analysis, applied design, development, implementation and oversight of more advanced aeronautical/aerospace systems and processes.
The mission of the Aeronautical Systems Engineering Technology program is to prepare students for entry-level positions or graduate-level education in aeronautical systems, systems engineering, engineering technology, or other closely-related fields upon graduation.
The objective of the Aeronautical Systems Engineering Technology program is to prepare students for entry-level professional careers in aviation systems engineering and technology fields. The program education objectives are:
- Students shall demonstrate a thorough understanding of fundamental aeronautical concepts and practices
- Students shall understand attributes of a modern aviation professional
- Students shall apply engineering principles and practices to real-world design problems
