The Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Technologies is designed to enhance technical training students have received in aviation maintenance or electronics. This technical training may be acquired through SIUC (FAA Airframe and Power-plant Certificate), at other post-secondary institutions, military, or other FAA approved schools.
