About

A first thought of aviation might be of flying as a pilot in a commercial aircraft, but aviation is a global organization that also needs well-organized managers and professional pilots to design, manage and operate the national and international aviation systems of the future. Aviation at The Ohio State University was started in 1917 and has produced many successful pilots and aviation managers. 

Overview

Aviation is a combination of many opportunities. Aviation is a high-technology, rapidly changing, competitive business operating in a global arena. Educated, professional managers are needed in over 50 career areas in the aviation industry. Transportation, economics and logistics, flight operations, and flight support are some of the many other positions that make up the exciting and challenging field of aviation.

Possible careers

For every pilot in every aircraft there are at least 10 other aviation professionals each contributing their expertise to the successful planning and operation of a flight. These professionals include airport managers, flight instructors, fixed base operators, air traffic controllers, government consultants and members of regulatory bodies. Graduates of the aviation program may find careers at airlines and in fields such as corporate aviation, cargo aviation, flight support and planning, aviation support systems, and air transportation management.

The aviation industry also has many opportunities in research and development. Work is continually being done to analyze aviation and to determine what can be done to make it safer, to manage it more efficiently, and to develop new products and techniques.

Program objectives

The aviation undergraduate curriculum is designed to give a student the foundation upon which careers can be made designing, managing and operating tomorrow’s national and international aviation systems. 

Aviation is a high-technology, competitive industry, operating in a highly regulated structure. In order to provide the aviation student with an ability to deal with complex technical problems, the curriculum contains engineering science and analysis components. The foundation for the curriculum is the engineering freshman program. Students are encouraged to contact the department for additional information.

Each student admitted to the program will be assigned an adviser who can provide personal guidance.
