Job prospects for graduates
It’s true: Texas employs the highest number of aviation maintenance workers in the country. So when you consider that TSTC is one of about a dozen colleges in Texas certified by the FAA to train Aviation Maintenance Technicians, you can see that job prospects for graduates are sky-high.

With just two additional semesters, students can choose to double their opportunities by also completing the Aircraft Powerplant Technology degree.
If you are on a quick timeline, a certification is ideal to enter the workforce quickly. You can use your existing knowledge base to finish in just 45 credit hours. The choice is yours - pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree or certification in Aircraft Airframe Technology and Aircraft Powerplant Technology. Picture this: you can join the ranks of TSTC graduates at companies like American Eagle, Dallas Airmotive, Petroleum Helicopters International, L-3 Communications, Lubbock Aero, The Space Ship Company (for Virgin Galactic), Southwest Airlines and Texas Aerospace and with government agencies including the Department of Defense, Homeland Security and NASA. Literally, the sky is the limit for you.
