PROGRAMS

The School of Aviation Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Science in Professional Pilot, Aviation Management, and Aerospace Technology Management. UVU Aviation Science offers an Associate in Applied Science in Aviation Science and an Associate in Science in Aviation Science Each associate degree requires the completion of a commercial pilot certificate.

365体育比赛投注Students graduating with the associate degree in Aviation may transfer to any of the Bachelor of Science options.

365体育比赛投注An overall grade point average of 2.0 (C) or above is required for graduation. A grade of C- or better must be achieved for credit in any aviation science course.

Bachelor of Science, Aviation Management

The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management degree is designed to produce graduates with a combination of industry knowledge and general management skills applicable in any segment of the aerospace field. In addition, they can obtain direct experience and certifications that will propel them toward their chosen career path. Careers in aviation administration include: Airline, corporate aviation, fixed base operations, and airport management.

Bachelor of Science, Aerospace Technology Management

The Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Technology Management degree prepares certified Airframe & Powerplant technicians365体育比赛投注 for career progression into leadership and managerial roles needed in a wide variety of areas not only in aviation, but the entire aerospace industry. This emphasis is designed to prepare students for careers as professionals with air carriers, business aviation, general aviation, defense, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and space.

FLIGHT REQUIREMENTS

The UVU flight program is a demanding program and requires full commitment each semester. There are no requirements to enter the professional pilot Bachelor of Science degree, but due to the current demand in aviation we are not able to accommodate all new students wanting to start flight training until their 2 nd or 3 rd semester.

365体育比赛投注Enrollment in the on-campus professional pilot flight courses are by a competitive points-based application and contingent upon completion of required prerequisites. New aviation students must meet with an aviation academic advisor before registering for flight courses. A class II Medical from a FAA designated Medical Examiner is required and must be completed prior to applying to the flight training program.

365体育比赛投注In addition to UVU tuition, students training at the UVU flight school will pay flight course fees to cover costs associated with the required flight training. For more information regarding student loans, please contact the UVU financial aid & scholarship office located at the main UVU campus.

Students for whom English is a second language are conditionally admitted but must demonstrate acceptable level of English skills prior to beginning flight training. New students may be required to meet additional English language proficiency standards set by the school and determined through both oral and written testing.
