The Department of Applied Aviation Sciences offers five bachelor's degree programs, each unique: Commercial Space Operations, Air Traffic Management, Aerospace and Occupational Safety, Meteorology, and Operational Meteorology.

Each program is very different from the others. However, all are good choices for students who want challenging and rewarding careers working in direct contact with aviation or aerospace but who may not be interested in flight.

The department’s facilities include high-definition simulators for air traffic control, a crash lab where students get to experience forensic investigation of aircraft accidents, and a meteorology lab with specialized equipment for broadcasting and forecasting. These programs ensure students graduate with hands-on experience using highly advanced technology.
