Student Spotlight

Kyle Young

“Technical service management has prepared me for my career by helping me understand all the aspects of the aviation industry. Upon graduation, I will join the U.S. Air Force pilot training program as an officer. Part of being an officer includes having a working knowledge of the things that happen inside and outside the cockpit, and the technical service management program has given me this working knowledge.”
