ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Oklahoma State University
Scope and method of study: The purpose of this study was to construct a descriptive analysis of aviation maintenance training programs that confer the Bachelor of Science degree and who are members of the Aviation Technician Education Council. The sample was comprised of the 11 educational programs within the population that met these criteria. Data was gathered with a questionnaire instrument that was delivered to the administrators of each sample institution. The data were presented in a textual and graphical format in order to establish a baseline database of leading characteristics and practices with regard to four research questions related to (1) administrative organization, (2) management structure, (3) program infrastructure, and (4) curriculum/operational practices. Findings and conclusions: A series of salient findings and conclusions were generated through analysis of the data. The findings allowed for a highly detailed description of collegiate aviation technical education programs to be constructed that enhances the knowledge and understanding of these unique programs. In addition, conclusions were drawn based upon the data that were the basis of recommendations that address each of the research question areas. The purpose of the recommendations is to enhance the quality and efficiency of aviation technical education which, in turn, will positively affect the quality and safety of the aviation industry as a whole.
