The Air Traffic Management program from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University provides you with the knowledge and foundation designated for entry into the FAA Academy, where you’ll be integrated with others for additional air traffic control training.

During the next decade, 85 percent of the U.S. air traffic controllers who are currently working will be eligible for retirement. This correlates to approximately 14,000 open positions for new controllers to join the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The Bachelor of Science in Air Traffic Management program at Embry-Riddle prepares graduates to fill those seats in a thrilling career in air traffic control. One of just a small number of colleges and universities granted FAA designation as a Collegiate Training Initiative school (and among the original cohort of 13), Embry-Riddle’s air traffic control program is taught by passionate, knowledgeable professors who have held positions as air traffic controllers themselves.

Because of the high quality of their education and experience, Embry-Riddle graduates always lead their classes at the FAA Academy.

The Air Traffic Management program from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University delivers fundamental traffic controller knowledge and competency through a mix of realistic lab simulations, classroom instruction, and computer-based learning.

Since Embry-Riddle has a formal partnership agreement with the FAA, be assured the curriculum and standards meet FAA demands and always exceed its expectations.
