The aim of this program is to provide students with in-depth theoretical knowledge along with practical experience in the development and control of Airframe structues. These systems are interdisciplinary technologies that are poised to leave their mark on areas such as manufacturing, transportation, aerospace, defense, healthcare, and many other critical fields of application in the aviation world.
This course takes many different forms, but can generally be described as the physical structure that houses all other components of the aircraft and is also the aerodynamic body of the aircraft. Material Science plays a major role in the studyy of this course. Within the last five years, tremendous growth and both industry and academia are in pressing need of qualified personnel with deep knowledge in machine learning, adaptive control, multi-agent systems, mechanical engineering, computer science, and a variety of other advanced aerodynamics topics.
The curriculum in an Airframes and Engines diploma program includes units in material science, aerodynamics and mechatronics systems line maintenance. Required courses for certification include mathematics, aerodynamics, the basics of aircraft handling and safety, documents and regulations, airframe, power plants and fuel and exhaust systems.
While there are undergraduate degrees and certificates available for aiframe and engines technicians, graduate and post-graduate degrees in this area are not commonly offered in these programs. The technicians who are interested in further education can go on to pursue engineering degrees.
