Why study air traffic management?
Air Traffic Management at UND
Train with state of the art virtual tower and radar simulators, plus study in a second field.
The Air Traffic Management curriculum prepares students for careers as ground-based controllers who direct aircraft through the NationalAirspace System (NAS).
In addition to the primary curriculum, this program requires a second field of study, which normally means a formal minor, aviation specialization or a second major.
Upon graduation from UND, graduates of this program will request a letter of recommendation from the Department of Aviation. This letter will be used in applying for an Air Traffic Control Specialist position with the FAA, as a CTI (Collegiate Training Initiative) graduate. CTI graduates can apply in POOL 1 and are exempt from taking the biographical assessment (BQ) during the FAA Air Traffic Control Specialist hiring announcement.
