Advanced Technologies in Design and Production of Aircraft Structures & Systems
3
The curriculum within this course explores advanced technologies used during the design, production, and certification of aircraft structures and systems. Topics include an analysis of structural materials, including advanced composites and alloys, and an in-depth examination of the design and production of automated systems utilized throughout the aircraft. Examined are national and international aviation regulations and airworthiness standards governing the design, production, and certification of aircraft structures and systems.

Students will comprehend the role of technology in improving aircraft design and production processes. Students will gain an understanding of how technological advances have resulted in improvements to aircraft systems monitoring. Students will identify the role of advanced material use in improving aircraft performance and reducing cost. Students will evaluate quality control improvements that have been realized as the result of emerging technology during aircraft and component assembly and certification.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:1. Summarize national and international regulatory requirements that establish aircraft and component design, production and certification criteria.2. Explain advanced technology in aircraft design and construction and how it is applied to various types of aircraft.3. Summarize advanced instrumentation used to monitor aircraft operation and system performance.4. Compare and contrast the advantages of using advanced technology during ground and flight testing requirements as part of a comprehensive certification process.5. Assess the role of emerging technology in determining materials used in aircraft structures.6. Compare and contrast the role of computer automation in improving aircraft systems design and functionality.7. Evaluate the quality control advantages that have been realized as the result of leveraging technology during aircraft production.8. Analyze aircraft system and component reliability trends to determine the impact of technology in extending the life cycle of aircraft systems and components.9. Describe the role of technology in meeting national and international environmental standards for aircraft systems design.10. Evaluate the performance and cost of using advanced composites and alloys in aircraft structures.11. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter.

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.
