Aviation at Waterloo
The field of aviation has evolved significantly over the past 50 years. Aviation and aerospace industries demand a new breed of specialists who have a comprehensive academic background to help them understand complex aircraft systems, and well-developed analytical, critical thinking and decision-making skills. Flight training is a requirement for many aviation and aerospace careers. A university degree is regarded by the airline industry as a valuable asset for a pilot, and is rapidly becoming a requirement for the profession.
In recognition of this need, the Bachelor of Environmental Studies (BES) and Bachelor of Science (BSc) programs have been designed to provide a strong base for careers in a diverse array of aviation and aerospace industries and provide students with a solid and comprehensive grounding in aviation-relevant subjects such as geomatics, climatology, cartography and remote sensing. The BSc degree additionally provides candidates with a strong science and technology base while the BES provides expertise in areas such as tourism and geomatics.
