TTC’s Division of Manufacturing and Maintenance provides programs addressing the needs of the advanced manufacturing and the building and automotive maintenance industries. Also, the division satisfies the need for trained aerospace workers in the fields of aircraft maintenance, aircraft avionics and aircraft manufacturing.
Not only are jobs in these sectors considered high demand, they are also high wage positions. Associate degrees and certificates are offered in the areas of Automotive technology, Machine Tool technology, Industrial Maintenance, Welding technology and Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Mechanics. Students interested in any of the division’s programs should enjoy learning how machines operate and creating components from drawings, and should have a curious and logical mind. Students will learn from experienced professionals in an industrial environment where hands-on skill development and safety are emphasized.
The Aircraft Maintenance programs are designed to lead toward Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensing or certification for airframe and powerplant while the Avionics Maintenance program is designed to lead toward Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and National Center for Aerospace and Transportation Technologies (NCATT) certification. Both programs offer either an associate degree or certificates that will lead toward certification by their respective certifying agencies. Classes for the Aircraft Assembly program are offered as a two-semester certificate program. Students may enter any program at the start of any semester upon approval of an academic advisor.
