To further the experience of our students, WMAA provides opportunities to interact with industry professionals during First Friday events and job shadowing.
First Friday events host industry professionals for lunch to discuss their career and job roles within aviation. Through these informal discussions, students can ask questions and learn what career options are available and gives an understanding of the duties involved if a student chooses the occupation. Not only do students develop new industry relationships, it enables students to establish educational and career goals.
In addition, job shadows bring students to companies such as GE Aviation and Eaton Aerospace to provide more in depth knowledge of careers and delivers an inside perspective within the industry of aviation.
