COURSE 2018-05-07
This course covers the essential topics pertaining to composites engineering and the certification process. Its contents provide students with an awareness of the composites engineering process framework through course materials and practical applications through on-line discussions. Topics include engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, and certification of composite materials associated with civil aircraft structures. The course content is in accordance with FAA AC 20-107B (Composite Aircraft Structure). This course was developed through the collaboration of Wichita State University, industry subject matter experts, and the Federal Aviation Administration. The course is taught on-line, includes all teaching materials, and features real-world discussions facilitated by subject matter experts and FAA representatives. Depending on prior knowledge and experience, students will spend approximately ten hours per week reviewing materials, participating in on-line discussions and testing their knowledge. A 2-day hands-on lab is offered in Wichita, Kansas. After finishing a 1-week period of self-study of fundamental composites and successfully completing an examination, students proceed to more advanced topics through an on-line, interactive learning experience via Blackboard. Teaching methodology includes on-line discussions facilitated by subject matter experts, relevant documentation, and audio/visual aids. A hands-on lab will be offered separately at future times. Completion of the lab is required to receive a CSET certificate. The course runs for 12 weeks. Out of agency training provider.
