The College of Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation. The degree consists of engineering foundation coursework, aviation core courses, and technical electives. Mathematics, physics, and various engineering disciplines make up the engineering foundation. 

Our aviation program prepares well-rounded aviation professionals 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 numerous other aviation experts responsible for successfully planning and operating a flight. Example careers, other than work as a professional pilot, 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.

The Professional Pilot Specialization results in students obtaining a commercial pilot certificate and instrument rating, and either a multi-engine rating or a flight instructor certificate.  Careers for our graduates include flight instruction, charters, regional and national airlines, fractional operators, industrial aviation, business aviation, cargo aviation, and other specialized flying.
