Composite Certificate

Two Certificates of Completion Now Available

Oregon Tech Seattle now offers two certificates of completion in the field of composites

  1. Certificate of Completion in Composites Engineering Technology
  2. Certificate of Completion in Composites Engineering, Maintenance and Repair Technology

Employees in the Puget Sound area can take classes for these certificates at Boeing locations in Everett, Frederickson, and Seattle. Employees outside of the Puget Sound area can obtain their certificates through independent study classes which utilize Blackboard, ppt, word, and pdf files. In some instances WebEx may also be used.

These are college level classes which earn college credit. Study/homework - prepare to spend 8-10 a week per class. Homework and exams will be submitted electronically. Test are open book/take home and you have two weeks to complete them.

Certificate of Completion - Composite Engineering Technology

The increasing use of composites in Boeing aircraft resulted in a growing need for employees conversant in composite materials and processes. In 2004 Oregon Tech, in conjunction with Boeing's Manufacturing Skills Team, developed a series of classes that provides employees this essential knowledge and skill set. Boeing professionals in the field of composite materials serve as instructors for these introductory classes. The Certificate of Completion in Composite Engineering Technology consists of four classes, each class consisting of 4 credits.

The recommended course schedule for those taking one class a term is:

Composite Materials and Processes I
Applied Composites I
Composite Materials and Processes II
Applied Composites II

The recommended course schedule for those taking two classes a term is:

Composite Materials and Processes I
Applied Composites I
Composite Materials and Processes II  Applied Composites II

Certificate of Completion - Composite Engineering, Maintenance and Repair Technology

With the advent of 787 aircraft there is now the need for employees knowledgeable in the maintenance and repair of composites. The first classes in composite maintenance will be offered in winter term 2011, with the first classes in composite repair following spring term 2011.  These two new classes will provide employees with essential knowledge and a skill set. Boeing professionals in the field of composite materials serve as instructors for these introductory classes. The Certificate of Completion in Composite Engineering, Maintenance and Repair Technology consists of two classes, each class consisting of 4 credits. These two classes build on previous class material so there are required pre-requisites.

  1. Composite Maintenance - requires Applied Composites I & II
  2. Composite Repair - requires Composite Maintenance; Applied Composites I & II

Previous Oregon Tech students wishing to take the composite classes will need to fill out a re-enroll form and release of information form to take classes.

New students wishing to take only composite classes may enter the program as non-admitted students. For additional information on applying click the link.
