BY DONALD BARTLETT AND MATTHEW HARRISON | CONTRIBUTING EDITORS


There are currently more than 150 FAA approved “Part 147” aviation maintenance technology programs in the U.S. The vast majority of these programs (90% or more) off er less than the baccalaureate degree. Most of these schools are at the community college level and off er associate degrees. Upon completing training and FAA certifi cation, these students often join the aerospace workforce and remain there for the duration of their career.

Well there is a way… Southern Illinois University (SIU) is unique in that it off ers a bachelor’s of science degree in aviation technologies with three current specializations: Advanced Aircraft Maintenance, Helicopter Maintenance, and Aviation Electronics (avionics) within the brick and mortar setting. Most recently, SIU has added a new online degree specialization completion program, Aviation Maintenance Management, aimed at bringing the possibility of earning a bachelor’s degree to students (current aerospace employees) already working with an FAA Airframe & Powerplant


certifi cate or relevant work experience by taking online courses through SIU and giving credit for current work experience. Potential students are able to


use previous coursework from an accredited institution and/or related work experience as required credit hours. This degree completion is ideally suited for those individuals who fall into at least one of the following categories: 1. Completed an FAA Part 147 Aircraft Maintenance Technician School


2. Currently, hold Airframe and/or Powerplant certifi cation


3. Completed an associate degree in aircraft maintenance or electronics
