Aviation Maintenance Capstone Course
The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance Capstone Course is the culminating effort of the student's entire learning experience. The student will complete an individual project that provides significant evidence of experience in aviation maintenance studies. Students will work with designated faculty members to formulate, develop, and complete the aviation maintenance project. The completion of the Capstone Course is designed to document significant evidence that Program Outcomes have been met, and provides the student evidence of experience to show to current and prospective employers. The Capstone Course will be taken at the end of the student's degree program as the final course of the degree program.
The goal of the Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance Capstone course is to provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate they have met Program Outcomes. Students will complete an individual project that is aligned with Program Outcomes. The project will require extensive research to support the project and Program Outcomes. Students are required to present their project.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
