The Bachelor of Science degree in Air Traffic Management (ATM) offered by the Applied Aviation Sciences Department is for students whose goal is to become an air traffic controller or work in a related field. The coursework provides exposure to procedures and operations like those found in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) air traffic control facilities. The curriculum builds the foundation a student needs to enter the FAA Academy for additional air traffic control training.
First year students in the Department of Applied Aviation’s Bachelor of Science degree in Air Traffic Management (ATM) program will typically study aviation-focused mathematics, meteorology, and computer science, along with general education courses like communication skills and other electives related to the minor course of study.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Air Traffic Management may be completed in eight semesters and requires successful completion of at least 120 credit hours, including a minor course of study to be approved by the Applied Aviation Sciences Department.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Air Traffic Management requires successful completion of a minimum of 120 credit hours, normally completed in eight semesters. This includes a minor course of study as approved by the Department of Applied Aviation Sciences.
