airport manager looks across airfield

Pilots make up a very small fraction of the available careers in the vast and expansive aviation industry. Providing an estimated 62.7 million jobs worldwide, virtually every career discipline has either a direct or indirect role in or connection to the aviation world. The demand for air travel, logistics, and associated technologies is climbing rapidly in response to an increasing world population and the steady stream, even a surge in some cases, of retirements. According to Boeing (2018), hundreds of thousands of aerospace jobs worldwide will need to be filled in the next two decades. Trained industry professionals are highly sought after to meet this need.

Whether you already have a career path in mind, or are still exploring the possibilities, the Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management was designed to expose students to the seemingly limitless career opportunities in the aerospace industry and serve as a foundation, providing necessary knowledge, vital experiences, internships, certifications, and guidance on any additional training or experience that may be necessary for a chosen career path.
