Aviation science is the field of study for those interested in the world of aerospace, from crewmembers to airline management and maintenance technicians. All those who wish to enter this field must receive a degree in aviation to enter the industry.

A Bachelor’s Degree in Aviation complements technical training in a variety of backgrounds, including air traffic control, flight operations, dispatch operations and more. The undergraduate degree gives students a solid general education surrounding the field of aviation and aerospace, and those who complete the program can enter into entry-level careers in their chosen industry within aviation.

But for those who wish to go beyond entry-level, a master’s degree is necessary. Whether you are already in the aviation space and hope to expand your knowledge and climb the ladder, or you want to go back into aviation and make it a long-lasting career, a Master’s Degree in Aviation Science will help get you there.
