A growing government and private sector need for professionals trained in aviation safety has prompted a new degree at Florida Institute of Technology: the Master of Science in Aviation Safety, which is taught 100% through online learning. The degree, offered by the Florida Tech College of Aeronautics, is a companion degree to its Master of Science in Human Factors in Aeronautics, which is also available on line.
Participants will learn about safety management systems (SMS); aviation safety analysis, complex aviation systems, accident prevention, human factors and decision-making, university officials said.
Class sizes are limited to 15 students. Admission requirements and curriculum information are available here.
