The College of Science, Engineering and Technology (COSET) received the Part 141 program designation from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in November. TSU’s Aviation school can continue its mission to train pilots along a specific career path. The FAA sets regular reviews of programs with a Part 141 curriculum for consistency, continuity and acceptable flight training practices.

TSU’s Aviation Science Management degree is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE). The program has four aircraft and two full-motion Redbird flight simulators. Plus, veterans who enroll in the program can use their benefits to pay for coursework and flight fees. 

“The FAA Part 141 designation gives TSU flight students a special approved training program while attending classes toward obtaining their Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Science Management,” said Dr. Terence Fontaine, director of Aviation at TSU. “We have the title for a two-year period in which we must accomplish key metrics in order to maintain the FAA accreditation. We are excited that the hard work by our staff and leadership over the past few years has paid off.”
