Master of Research (M.Res.) in Aviation Maintenance
The Master of Research (M.Res.) in Aviation Maintenance degree is a unique program designed to meet the long-standing needs of disseminating research skills to those working with and dealing with the aviation related to all aspects of maintenance. Many graduates from this degree would likely advance to a Ph.D. in the future. It is designed as a degree by research for those challenged to meet the advancements in maintenance both in the USA and globally. Without effective aviation maintenance the industry will not be able to support passenger needs for safety. As it is a research based degree you will be able to focus your work towards your areas of interest. All students will be taught how to develop a research plan before they start their research. The completion of the M.Res. in Aviation Maintenance program requires the student to produce, present, and defend a Master’s thesis.
