AES 4250 - Formulation of National Aviation Policy

3(3 + 0)

Prerequisite: Student must be an aviation and aerospace science major with At least junior standing and will be preapproved by the department for enrollment in the course

The preapproval process includes submitting an application to the department by September 30 before the spring semester in which he/she wants to enroll. Students taking this course will be required to attend the University Aviation Association’s annual seminar held in January in Washington, D.C. before the start of the spring semester and to participate in six pre-trip meetings in the fall semester prior to the seminar. At this seminar, students and faculty from member institutions will meet to discuss current national aviation issues and investigate the politics and ongoing governmental processes established to deal with these issues. The focus of the pre-trip meetings will be a study of the aviation issues to be evaluated and the background needed to understand the politics involved. While at the seminar, students will be required to interview key aviation and government officials, gather data, and learn about the policy-making process. During the spring semester, each participant will prepare a comprehensive research paper as a final project to demonstrate the lessons learned.
