Description

Farmingdale State College has proven to be a pioneer in the evolution of the educational curriculum in making sure that it correlates to present and future job markets. The small school in Long Island, NY recognized that the post-World War II job market was in demand for an increase of technological positions. Farmingdale began its aviation program as a two year associates degree in aircraft maintenance and operations in 1947 and lasted until 2006. The name of the associate's degree had fluctuated as follows: (Aircraft Maintenance and Operations 1947-1848); (Aircraft Operations 1949-1960); (Aircraft Operations Technology 1960-1970); (Aerospace Technology-1970-1989); (Aircraft Maintenance-Mechanical Technology 1989-1993); (Aerospace Technology 1993-2006). From 1987 to 1993, Farmingdale offered a certificate program in aviation called: (Aircraft Maintenance Technology 1987-1988); (Mechanical Technology-Aircraft Maintenance 1989-1993).
On Wednesday, February 28, 1990, the SUNY Board of Trustees approved two upper division bachelor's programs in aeronautical science-professional pilot and aviation administration. Both programs began in 1994 and are still currently operating under those same names. Presently, Farmingdale's aviation program is in the top of its class in the region.
