千蠃官网国际网址An important aspect of the aerospace industry is maintenance management, the part of the industry that keeps aircraft flying! This concentration offers preparation for students wishing to enter the aviation maintenance field as practicing maintenance technicians or as entry-level managers at aircraft repair stations or other types of operations involving aircraft manufacturing, maintenance, or modification. Learning about related components such as materials, including modern composites, and the proper repair and inspection of those materials is part of the field. The fundamental skills needed in aerospace vehicle repair and maintenance are stressed, together with management skills for such careers. MTSU is an approved Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) FAR Part 147 maintenance technician school for airframe and powerplant mechanics.

What We're Doing

Students train on turbofan engine used in most commercial craft

Students train on turbofan engine used in most commercial craft

Learning how to work on airplane engines is serious business for students in MTSU’s Maintenance Management program. The task became significantly easier when Southwest Airlines donated a turbofan engine just like the ones “which rule the skies today with regard to commercial transportation,” said Bill Allen, associate professor and coordinator of the program, when the generous gift was announced. CFM International makes the engines that weigh about 4,300 pounds and have a thrust range of 18,500 to 34,000 pounds of force. Since the engines were introduced in 1974, more than 30,000 have been produced. Allen said that this was a welcome addition to the training center at Murfreesboro Airport because “We don’t have any engines with these types of systems, advanced as they are.” He is grateful to Southwest and to alumnus Chad Rhyne, who works at the airline and made the initial contact to see if MTSU would be interested. Students in the program are more than interested—they’re excited because it will help them in the job market. “This is real-world experience right here,” senior Jeremy Lacy says.

Graduate says superior program led him to dream company

Graduate says superior program led him to dream company

“While I was growing up in Brentwood, I always knew I loved airplanes. A trip to the airport meant the world to me. While I was in school at Brentwood High School, I started researching aviation careers and aviation universities,” remembers James Blackburn, who graduated MTSU in 2013. He says his research brought him to the realization that “I had one of the best aviation departments in the nation less than an hour from me!” He looked at the five available concentrations, “but since I loved tinkering around, I chose aerospace maintenance management.” He says that during his studies, “it was apparent that MTSU’s faculty, facilities, and reputation were beyond world class.” Blackburn, who attributes his preparation to the superior training he received, says he was ready “to work for the company of my dreams, Southwest Airlines. I was lucky enough to land as an intern at their company headquarters in Dallas, Texas. The internship led to a full-time job, and I have since become an apprentice aircraft maintenance technician. Without MTSU, I would not have been prepared for everything they threw at me.” 千蠃官网国际网址
