Aviation students are encouraged to pursue admission into the Barrett Honors College. Students in this program have been able to work with many Aviation faculty developing innovative programs and resources for aviation. Not only has this allowed students to learn a great deal more about the various facets of aviation, but it has also better prepared them for leadership positions in the industry.
Any Barrett student who is considering majoring or minoring in Aviation should contact the lead FHA, Dr. Mary Niemczyk.
Aviation students have completed a variety of types of theses. Qualitative and quantitative research, development of 3D models of airspace as well as apps. The Aviation program does abide by Barrett's requirements for committees. Some students have had faculty from multiple academic programs, for example, aviation and biology, for a thesis focusing on the impact of wildlife at and near airports.
It is recommended that students have completed or be enrolled in a 300 or 400 level of the topic level course for which the research will be focused. For example, completion of ATC 332/432 TRACON Operations and Operations and Procedures before completing a thesis focusing on terminal radar approach control at airports.
