Our aviation maintenance science (AMS) “classroom” is a 48,000-square-foot building that is home to labs for airframe and powerplant (A&P) technicians. Additional resources include a hangar, turbine engine test cells and aircraft. In the FAR Part 145 engine repair station, students overhaul engines for the university’s fleet under the watchful eyes of highly experienced professors. Students can choose a concentration in flight, maintenance management, safety science, or avionics cybertechnology and security. We also offer an avionics line maintenance minor. Coursework includes avionics system installation, wiring concepts and troubleshooting for ADS-B, satellite communications/connectivity, navigation and automated flight systems. Skilled technicians are ready to work for manufacturers, airlines, commercial fleets and contractors who overhaul and rebuild aircraft. Increasingly, graduates work in avionics, focused on unmanned aerial vehicles. Embry-Riddle is introducing a U.S. Department of Defense SkillBridge program to help separating service members, veterans and military spouses transition to careers in aviation maintenance. After completing this nine-week program, graduates will interview with industry partners. Additionally, Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide Campus offers Part 65 education and an online Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Maintenance.
