Faculty:School of Advanced Technology
Degree:Diploma
Field of Study:Aeronautics/Aviation/Aerospace Science and Technology, General
Description:This two-year Ontario College Diploma program provides students interested in pursuing a career in the aircraft maintenance industry with the necessary knowledge and skills. Recent growth in the aviation sector combined with higher than usual retirement rates have prompted many employers and manufacturers to revise hiring projections and are predicting a shortage of skilled and licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs).

Through a series of classroom-based courses and extensive practical labs, students maintain and repair electrical and mechanical systems within an aircraft including hydraulic, fuel, environmental, engine, control surfaces and undercarriage and the aircraft`s frame and external skin. Central focus is on aircraft maintenance practices and procedures, as well as aviation regulation requirements.
