I majored in Industrial & Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. One of the jobs I held was as a Quality Improvement Engineer at Lockheed Martin where I was able to manage projects identifying and preventing errors on the building of the aircraft. Depending what school you decide to attend, I believe engineering would be a good field to study. You can also look for internships at companies like Lockheed Martin, Delta, etc.
Star recommends the following next steps:
- Research school degree programs
- Reach out to the dean of the school programs to ask questions
- Look for aircraft maintenance job descriptions and see what the preferred and required qualifications are for those jobs.
