Started in January 2010, the Ph.D. in Aviation program was developed to serve the aviation industry’s need for high level researchers. The mission of the Ph.D. in Aviation program is to produce outstanding scholars for careers in research and teaching in the aviation field. Students in the program take part in a rigorous, research-driven program that pushes them to their greatest potential. Five program educational goals guide the curriculum and include mastery of central theories and concept, solving theory-based and research-based problems, extending the aviation body of knowledge through original research, demonstrating expertise in instruction, leadership, collaboration, and communication. The first Ph.D. in Aviation degrees were conferred in December 2013.
