Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance

Today, a degree isn’t a nice-to-have - it’s a must-have

Education is the key to getting more out of life — whether you’re looking for a higher salary, greater job satisfaction, or a soaring sense of personal pride. If you work in the aircraft maintenance field and are ready for advancement, Embry-Riddle can help. Our Bachelor in Aviation Maintenance degree lets you build on the skills you already possess, while laying the foundation for greater accomplishments.

If you hold an FAA Airframe & Powerplant Maintenance Certificate, you may be awarded up to 18 credit hours toward the associate degree or up to 30 credit hours toward the bachelor’s degree. Students may also earn maintenance credit as part of the overall curriculum.

In addition to gaining critical skills needed to succeed in an aviation maintenance career, students will specialize in one of two maintenance functions: Management or Safety. Plus, students gain a solid core of courses in general education, which prepares graduates for success in any industry, not just aviation.

In the aviation industry, the most crucial task is to keep the planes flying safely. That’s why people with aircraft maintenance skills and knowledge will continue to be in high demand by aviation and aeronautical employers. In today’s competitive workforce, however, it takes something extra to move up the career ladder. Aviation professionals can get that edge with a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University — Worldwide.
