Aviation Maintenance Major (B.S.)

Aviation Maintenance Major (B.S.)


The purpose of the Aviation Maintenance degree program is to prepare students for management and leadership roles in the aviation maintenance field. The curriculum expands on the School of Aeronautics AMTS (A&P) training for FAA aviation mechanic licensure. It builds on, and strengthens, fundamental skills and principles taught during the AMTS training. The degree delves into broader topics facing an FAA licensed mechanic such as Human Factors and Safety.

The FAA certification portion of this program (all AVMT courses) is designed to be completed in 12-consecutive months.

Note: Based on FAA requirements, the AVMT courses (45 hours) listed on this degree cannot be offered online and must be taken residentially at Liberty University. You may complete FAA mechanic certification with Airframe and Powerplant ratings outside of Liberty University and Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) credit may be awarded for licensure to meet the requirements of the AVMT courses (45 hrs.)
