The mission of the Aviation Operations program is to serve our students and the air transportation industry by providing outstanding eduation and traiing in airport and airline management, air traffic control, and other aspects of aviation operations. By educating students on current aviation laws, FAA regulations, global trends, and new technologies, the program will produce graduates that are well prepared for careers in aviation management, administration, and air traffic control.
This program prepares students to pursue a career in aviation technical, administrative or management positions in public, private or government aviation operations. Students gain the knowledge and skills required to become airline business managers, airport managers or air traffic controllers.
Students entering the Air Traffic Control (6967) track will receive the necessary training to meet entry level air traffic control requirements. At the completion of this program, AT-CTI graduates are able to demonstrate proficient, entry-level air traffic controller operating techniques, procedures, and skills, understanding of air traffic regulations, the regulatory responsibility and authority of the Federal Aviation Administration as well as awareness of current aviation issues and trends as they relate to the aviation industry.
Students may begin taking aviation classes without being accepted in the AT-CTI program. Students can apply to the AT-CTI program only after they have completed the required prerequisite classes (see Air Traffic Control 6967).
Students interested in admittance to the Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI) program, and applying to the FAA as an air traffic controller should see FAA Air Traffic Control guidelines.
