B.S. in Aerospace Systems Technology

B.S. in Aerospace Systems Technology

(HEGIS 0799)

The faculty in the Aerospace Systems Technology Program are dedicated to providing students with an understanding of the nature, functions, structures and procedures of the air transportation industry from the perspective of the use of technology in providing safe, efficient, economical transportation. Students will develop the ability to work on multiple complex problems in a collaborative environment developing skills to formulate technological solutions, working alone and in teams.

Within the Dowling College environment, the students are provided a comprehensive liberal education from selected courses in the School of Arts and Sciences.

In addition, those who desire to become pilots will receive additional ground and flight training leading to FAA certificates and ratings, by registering for the Professional Pilot Minor. Those who desire to become Federal air traffic controllers will receive training in preparation for the FAA Air Traffic Control school.
