Total Credit Hours: 128
Major Credit Hours: 89
This program is designed for the student who is planning a career in aviation maintenance management. The successful student will have a minimum of 128 credit hours and receive Lewis University Certificates of Completion for both Airframe and Powerplant. There are two optional specializations available: Avionics and Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE). They are the result of established articulation agreements with local community colleges. The Avionics program is accessible through several community colleges in the metropolitan Chicago area. The NDE program is offered as an articulated program solely between Lewis University and Moraine Valley Community College (in Palos Hills, Illinois). Students interested in these programs can begin their coursework at either institution and complete their studies with a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance Management.
