M.S. in Aviation and Aerospace Sustainability

The Master of Science in Aviation and Aerospace Sustainability degree program is designed to provide students with knowledge and comprehensive decision making skills to act as forward thinking managers of aviation and aerospace industry programs.
In the program aviation/aerospace sustainability is examined from two perspectives: 1) aviation and aerospace industries as business entities needing to remain viable and 2) as value added partners in the pursuit of sustainable solutions for conservation or renewability of the world’s resources. Today many aviation and aerospace industries operate on a global scale and require an in depth understanding of both viewpoints to sustain as well as advance operations. The MSAAS will provide a collaborative learning environment rich with opportunities to challenge current thought processes, work in autonomous or group settings and connect with diverse populations across the world.
