Aeronautics

The Aeronautics degree was conceived and developed specifically for people who work or have worked in aviation careers. The curriculum was designed to build upon the aviation knowledge and skill students bring with them from their training and experience. The combination of a student’s aviation learning and the required and elective courses in Aeronautical Science, Business, Computer Science, Economics, Communication, Humanities, Social Science, Mathematics, and Physical Science— along with professional development — prepare graduates for career growth and increased responsibility. This program is offered at the Florida and Arizona campuses.

In the Aeronautics program at the Worldwide Campus, students can earn more than a quarter of the required semester hours from prior life experience and receive a bachelor degree in as few as three years. The curriculum includes courses of study that complement and build on all types of aviation backgrounds. If you have experience as a pilot, air traffic controller, or aviation maintenance specialist, this is the program for you.

The Master of Science in Aeronautics is a broad-based, flexible degree that provides the aviation professional with a rigorous, individualized curriculum based on the “man-machine-system-solution” concept. This program endows the graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to advance in the aviation/aerospace industry. The degree allows in-career flight crew members, air traffic control personnel, flight operations specialists, industry technical representatives, aviation educators and other aviation/aerospace professionals to enhance their knowledge and careers. This program is offered at the Florida campus.
