The aviation management major is offered cooperatively by the School of Business and the Department of Technology.

Aviation Management Major (Bachelor of Science)

A student majoring in Aviation Management must complete a minimum of 110 quarter hours in the major consisting of the core courses and the technical requirements. In addition, the student must complete the required cognates, the general studies program, and all baccalaureate degree requirements as outlined in this bulletin.

The aviation program trains students using a Part 61 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) training course outline. A specified level of mastery and progress is required to complete the academic courses, earn flight certificates and ratings, and continue in the program. To be successful in training and in the aviation industry students must demonstrate proficiency in learning, sound judgment, safety awareness, and good moral character. Students will be allowed to register for flight classes based on performance in prerequisite classes. Due to the demanding and unforgiving nature of aviation operations, the Chair of the Technology department in consultation with the aviation faculty may dismiss students from aviation classes at any time. Reasons for such action may include, but are not limited to, the following: reckless operations, safety concerns or violations, security concerns raised by foreign and domestic background information, excessive cancellations, or documented progress delays in training due to student’s teach-ability, skill, or retention of knowledge.
