Christina Hiers, program coordinator

The Aviation Management concentration offers instruction for students who are interested in careers in the various aspects of aviation management including airport management, air carrier management, fixed base operator (FBO) management, or aviation consulting. Selected general education and minor courses are interwoven with aerospace courses to provide students with a foundation for such careers. Students choosing a concentration in Aviation Management will select a specific segment of the industry in which to focus, either airport or airline management. A significant culminating experience, in the form of a capstone course appropriate to the area of focus, is required.

Students in the Aviation Management concentration will complete a minor in Business Administration.

NOTE: All major courses, program accreditation, and/or Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) related coursework (physics, mathematics, and selected engineering technology courses) must be completed with a grade of C or better in order to graduate.
