ARE STUDENTS READY for the technological and engineered world?
This question is more important today than ever before. As most students play with technology, a central question that occurs is do they know what they can DO with it?
Aerospace Technologies is the answer. Students who study aerospace technology apply problem-based learning that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Aerospace technologies apply student ingenuity with tools, materials, processes, and resources to create solutions and opportunities for themselves and others. The nature of learning goes from the very early years of just “knowing” to more developed applications that might relate to the medical, agricultural, engineering, energy and power, information and communication,
transportation, manufacturing, and construction technologies.
• Aircraft Components & Functions
• Aircraft Engine Fundamentals (both Piston and Gas Turbine)
• Aviation Math & Physics
• Blueprint Reading & Technical Drawings
• Composite Fabrication & Repair
• Non Destructive Testing
• Principles of Flight (both Fixed & Rotary)
• Sheet Metal Fabrication & Repair
• Test of Workplace Essential Skills (TOWES) preparation
• Work Experience
(AETV20) This first year course will introduce students to composite & sheet metal fabrication techniques and principles of flight activities. Projects include but not limited to: Composite Skateboard, Medieval Kite Shield, Bottle Rockets, Foam Glider. 2 Credits
(AETV30) The second year Aerospace Technology course builds on the knowledge practical experience of the grade 10 year. Students will learn skills that will expand those developed in the various aerospace fabrication techniques as well as to gain further application of the physics of flight. 4 Credits
Topics/Projects include but not limited to:
• Reciprocating Engines Teardown and Assembly
• Lock wiring
• Airframe Sheet Metal
• Composite Design & Fabrication
• Intro Gas Welding
• Career exploration
(AETV40) The final year of Tec Voc’s Aerospace Technology program expands on the knowledge of the previous two years. When connecting gas turbine theory with non-destructive testing we as an aerospace family learn much needed knowledge to continue on in the industry. Topics and Projects included but not limited to: NDT, Advance Airframe Sheet, Advance Composite Fabrication, Electrical Fundamentals, TOWES Preparation & Certification. 4 Credits
• Gas Turbine Technician • Composite Fabricator
• Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME)
• Non Destructive Inspector (NDI) • Aviation Machinist
Post Secondary Opportunities
At Red River/Stevenson we have guaranteed seats for our graduates
for the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) program along
with the Gas Turbine and Composite Manufacturing program.
The University of Manitoba which has an aerospace option
through Mechanical Engineering is another viable option for our
Aerospace Technologies Aerospace manufacturing and maintenance orientation program
18 to 30 years old who want to transition to employment and post-secondary opportunities in the Manitoba Aerospace Industry.
AMMOP is a 10 month program in which students learn the skills that will lead to a career in the Aerospace Industry. Students attend from 7:45 to 3:00 for half a week, with perfect attendance being the expectation. The program began fifteen years ago under the guidance of our industry partners. 75% of our 365 graduates are known to be working or completing post-secondary education in the Aerospace Industry
Students must have completed their grade 12 and be competent in Math, Science and English. An entrance test will be completed in May with applicants subject to reference checks and an interview. Successful applicants will be notified in June for a September start date.
