Aerospace

Growing out of WWII pilot training on campus, MTSU's Aerospace department has become one of the nation's largest and most respected collegiate aviation programs. Whether you want to learn to fly the planes or to keep them safe both in the air and on the ground, there's no better place for your career to approach take off.

This program is approved for the Academic Common Market.

Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative

Bring order to the skies!

MTSU's Aerospace Department has one of the largest university Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI) programs in the country. This program allows graduates to be recommended to the FAA for the final segment of Air Traffic Controller Training and hiring. (Any MTSU Aerospace student can enter the program.)

MTSU Flying Raiders

Raiders in the air

For some students, the sky's not the limit so much as it's the destination. The MTSU Flying Raiders was formed to compete in the National Intercollegiate Flying Association's (NIFA) competitions. In 1993, participation in the team was opened up to the whole University to get more than just aerospace competitors. As a result, one doesn't need an Aerospace major to join the Flying Raiders. (The current membership includes Physics and Engineering majors.)

Employers the world over recognize MTSU's Aerospace major as an elite program that produces the highest caliber graduates. Examples of career options include.

  • Air traffic controller
  • Airfield safety manager
  • Airport manager
  • Avionics technician
  • Baggage handler
  • Commercial pilot
  • Commercial airline flight planner
  • Crew chief
  • Flight dispatcher
  • Flight safety officer
  • Flight software engineer
  • Mechanic
  • Quality control technician
  • Research pilot
