The College of Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation. The degree consist of engineering foundation coursework, aviation core courses, and technical electives. Mathematics, physics, chemistry, and various engineering disciplines make up the engineering foundation. Our aviation program prepares well-rounded pilots who are equipped not only to run airports and fly planes, but to design, manage and operate aviation systems all over the world. For every pilot in an aircraft, there are at least 10 other aviation experts responsible for successfully planning and operating a flight. Other careers include airport and airline management, flight support and planning, government and regulatory oversight, and aviation research and development. The engineering foundation and aviation courses along with general education courses complete the degree program.
