Aerostructure technicians are responsible for manufacturing and assembling sheet metal and composite aerostructures in an aerospace manufacturing environment. Aerostructures manufacturing is a foundational skill that requires intimate knowledge of blueprints, calculating dimensions, assembly processes, inspecting materials, lean manufacturing, industrial safety, and aircraft assembly tools.
Graduates of this program should be prepared for entry-level employment testing for sheet metal assembly, repair, and modification, as well as entry-level composite technician employment at a manufacturing or repair facility.
This curriculum provides individuals with the basic knowledge and skills needed to enter the aerospace and aerostructures manufacturing field as a technician and prepares students for entry-level aerostructures and sheet metal assembly employment testing.
Course work includes aerostructures shop practices, aerospace industry quality standards, sheet metal structures assembly and repair, lean manufacturing, composite structures manufacturing and repair, and industrial safety.
Upon successful completion of the Aerostructures Manufacturing and Repair Diploma, the graduate will be able to:
Identify common aerostructure components.
Understand basic functions of aerostructure components.
Assemble sheet metal structures by drilling, countersinking, and riveting.
Apply basic concepts of lean manufacturing in a manufacturing environment.
Manufacture and repair composite structures.
Assemble components in a manufacturing environment.
Modify and repair sheet metal structures.
NOTE: Program is taught in block training format: 5 hours per day, 5 days per week.
