The Department of Applied Aviation Sciences offers five bachelor's degree programs, each unique: Commercial Space Operations, Air Traffic Management, Aerospace and Occupational Safety, Meteorology, and Operational Meteorology.
Each program is very different from the others. However, all are good choices for students who want challenging and rewarding careers working in direct contact with aviation or aerospace but who may not be interested in flight.
For example, the Commercial Space Operations program helps students work in training, management, safety, policy, and planning in private and commercial space programs. This relatively new program helps students fill an expanding need in a growing, innovative field.
The Air Traffic Management program prepares students to work as air traffic controllers, airline dispatchers, or simulation specialists.
Aerospace and Occupational Safety gives students the expertise needed to address safety concerns in aviation and aerospace operations.
The Meteorology programs prepare students to be forecasters and researchers in the field of meteorology and weather analysis or to be broadcasters or briefers who provide weather-related information on the air or online.
The department’s facilities include high-definition simulators for air traffic control, a crash lab where students get to experience forensic investigation of aircraft accidents, and a meteorology lab with specialized equipment for broadcasting and forecasting. These programs ensure students graduate with hands-on experience using highly advanced technology.
