Aerospace Technology Academy

Aerospace Technology prepares graduates for employment in the aerospace and related industries through classroom and hands-on laboratory instruction in propulsion structures and assembly or specialized welding. In the Structures and Assembly program, students learn mechanical and electrical assembly which includes composites manufacturing, various testing methods; coating methods, including application of paint and primers; and bonding methods used in the assembly processes. Training in these manufacturing processes enables students to work on flight hardware in rockets, missiles, planes, helicopters and other aerospace or military hardware. Some of the classes include independent certifications provided to assist in employment opportunities.
