Students visit GE facilities for practical training on jet engines

Published Oct 24, 2018

Twenty-one Aggie engineers attended a practical training at General Electric's aviation facilities at QSTP last week. The training was organized by the Center for Teaching and Learning as part of the students’ engineering enrichment and to serve as a link between the classroom and industry. Students were introduced to GE on-wing support, learned how jet engines function, accessed the operational jet shop and met engineers who work on global aviation challenges. Students also executed a detailed borescope inspection on the largest jet engine in the world, the GE9X.
