Aviation Maintenance Technology (Diploma)
Associate of Applied Science Aviation Maintenance Technology (Degree)
(Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic D.O.T. 621.281-014)

These programs are designed to teach students the technical skills required to become entry-level airframe and power-plant technicians or obtain employment in related professions. Successful completion qualifies the graduates to take the written, oral and practical tests with the Federal Aviation Administration for the Mechanic's Certificate with both Airframe and Powerplant Ratings. The skills and knowledge gained from the diploma program are applicable to other maintenance industries and professions as well as aviation. The knowledge gained through the additional general education courses in the associate degree program enhance the students' background and intellectual proficiency so they are more competitive in their chosen professions.

The hybrid course is delivered partially through distance online education and partially on-ground.  It is designed to enable individuals to take the distance education portion of the course for the first 13-16 months (depending on if they are in the diploma or degree program).  Once that portion is completed the lab work (hands-on training) portion of the program is completed on site in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
