The curriculum for the aviation meteorology major provides a background in meteorology, aeronautical science and the appropriate physical sciences. A student completing the program meets the requirements of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management for employment by the federal government as a meteorologist. Graduates are prepared for careers with major airlines, corporate aviation and the FAA, as well as international organizations.
B.S. and M.S. degrees in meteorology are also offered through the marine and environmental systems department in the College of Engineering.
