The third and fourth years concentrate on developing skills in electronics, computers, business and general education, with particular emphasis in avionics systems and troubleshooting. The baccalaureate course work is designed to provide a broad base of technical knowledge in order to repair the integrated mechanical and electronic systems found on aircraft of today and tomorrow.
