Bachelor of Science Degree Program: Air Traffic Management
The Air Traffic Management program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree and combines general academic preparation, professional education in air traffic control (ATC), and management education. The program is one of a limited number recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as part of the Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI). The purpose of AT-CTI is to include collegiate aviation programs as the primary means of meeting the future needs of the national air space system for air traffic control. For employment with the FAA as an air traffic controller, individuals must meet FAA-prescribed medical standards and obtain an initial appointment with the FAA prior to their 31st birthday.
Daniel Webster College has participated in the Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (“AT-CTI”) program of the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) for several years. The AT-CTI program is designed to provide qualified applicants to fill developmental air traffic control specialist positions. Graduates of the program are eligible to bypass the Air Traffic Basics Course, which is the first five weeks of qualification training at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City. Academy training consists of option-specific (terminal or en route) initial training. Students must successfully complete all required training at the FAA Academy to continue employment with FAA.
Graduates may qualify for appointment as Air Traffic Control Specialists with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and possess the broad education, management, and communication skills to serve effectively in supervisory or management positions with the Air Traffic Division of the FAA, supervisory or management positions in a variety of aviation business settings, or for continued education in an appropriate master's degree program.
