Overview

Our College of Aeronautics has been consistently recognized as offering one of the best university-based aviation programs in the country.

The Aeronautical Science program at Florida Institute of Technology is available as either a flight or non-flight major. Choosing aeronautical science without flight provides a strong foundation in applied math and science for a career in a technical aspect of aviation, while Aeronautical Science—Flight prepares you for a career as a professional pilot.

This degree is very versatile, offering even more with these two additional options:

  • Prepare for a career in military aviation and participate in Army ROTC
  • Specialize in air traffic control and be ready to apply to the FAA Academy upon graduation

Careers in aeronautics include jobs such as:

  • Flight engineer
  • Aircraft technician
  • Aviation and aeronautic design
  • Aviation and aeronautic maintenance (repair and perform scheduled maintenance and conduct inspections as required by the FAA)
