At LeTourneau University, you'll not only develop an extensive knowledge of air traffic control basics, but you'll also gain the foundations of effective management that will take your aviation career from basic to boardroom. If you're interested in someday supervising other air traffic controllers and being a leader in your profession, consider a four-year Bachelor of Science in Air Traffic Management.
This degree option is an expanded version of the Associate of Science in Air Traffic Control, offering additional preparation for a future in aviation leadership with: business-related courses such as Aviation Management, Aviation Law, and Air Traffic Resource Management; more extensive aviation training courses, including Commercial Flight Operations and Aviation Human Factors; and more general business topics, from Conflict Resolution and Project Management, to Organizational Behavior and more.
LETU's Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI) program is designed to prepare you to fill much-needed air traffic control specialist positions in towers and radar centers around the country through hands-on learning using high-tech radar and tower simulators. Once you've honed your skills as a controller, you'll be more competitive for leadership roles with the bachelor's degree in air traffic management. FAA applicants must meet physical requirements and typically must be under the age of 31 to be hired.
