Preparing the World's Aviation Professionals Since 1968
Florida Tech is internationally recognized for excellence in aviation education. The university also has the privilege of being one of six universities designated a core partner in the Federal Aviation Administration's Center of Excellence Partnership to Enhance General Aviation Safety, Accessibility and Sustainability (PEGASAS).
Learn From Aviation Experts
In addition to earning a degree from one of the best university-based aviation programs in the country, you'll also learn from faculty who are experts in all aspects of aviation, including law, safety, environmental science, airport consulting, human factors and more. Not only are Florida Tech's instructors knowledgeable in their respective subjects, but they also share a love of aviation. Combine that with Florida Tech's small class sizes and you'll experience a unique online educational community. That's because the College of Aeronautics takes Florida Tech's "High Tech with a Human Touch" mantra to heart.
A Degree Matters. So Does the University You Earn it From.
Ranked a Tier 1 Best National University by U.S. News & World Report, a degree from regionally accredited Florida Tech puts you in the company of NASA scientists, Fortune 500 CEOs and top military generals. The university is also rated as one of the country's best in the Fiske Guide to Colleges, and as a best buy in Barron's Best Buys in College Education.
