Air Traffic Control Program

The college offers an air traffic control (ATC) specialization in conjunction with any of its seven bachelor's degrees. The ATC specialization meets the requirements of the FAA's Air Traffic–Collegiate Training Initiative (AT–CTI) program and is FAA-approved.

This program provides graduates with in-depth knowledge of ATC and the aviation industry to ensure graduates possess the requisite knowledge, skills and abilities to succeed in testing and training, and as air traffic controllers.

While no AT–CTI program graduates are guaranteed employment, the FAA considers these graduates to be a valuable hiring source for air traffic control specialist positions nationwide. On successful completion of this program and recommendation from the dean, graduates are further required by the FAA to achieve a passing score on the FAA-administered Air Traffic Selection and Training (AT–SAT) test battery, attend the FAA academy (bypassing the first five weeks) and successfully complete the on-site initial qualification training.

Curriculum

To successfully complete this program in conjunction with a bachelor's degree from the College of Aeronautics, the following seven named courses (21 credit hours) must be completed either as required courses within a degree, as electives or as a combination of both.

AVS 1201 Aviation Meteorology 3
AVS 2101 Aerodynamics 3
AVT 1001 Aeronautics 1 3
AVT 4301 Aviation Safety 3
AVT 2201 National Airspace Systems 3
AVT 3201 Air Traffic Control 1 3
AVT 4302 Air Traffic Control 2 3
