Aeronautical-Mechanical Concentration


The Aeronautical-Mechanical Engineering Technology Concentration deals with the complex and powerful mechanical systems used on today’s aircraft. The concentration combines the principles of mechanical engineering technology with the principles of aircraft systems, preparing graduates for a career in the field of aviation.

The emphasis of engineering technology is on the practical application of theory. Graduates with this concentration are involved in developing new systems, testing system designs, and improving manufacturing processes in aviation and related industries.

Senior Design Highlights

The STOLMA Senior Design Team is designing, building and testing a six-passenger, short take-off and landing airplane intended for missions applications.

The STOLMA aircraft design was based upon the Zenair CH 801-HD experimental aircraft. The STOLMA team modified the CH 801-HD design to allow for increased cargo capacity, the ability to transport medical litters and the capability to deploy parachute-rescue personnel.
