Prepare for Take-Off!

Aviation – Two Options

In September of 2013, the University of Maine at Augusta, in collaboration with Maine Instrument Flight, launched the UMA Bachelor of Science in Aviation program.

Later, in 2017, UMA started offering a program for remote pilots flying small Uncrewed Aircraft commonly referred to as drones.

Coming Soon! The Aviation Maintenance Technician School program will offer hands-on training, flexible learning options, and high-demand career opportunities.

Already have your pilot’s license, but want your Bachelor’s degree?
UMA also offers a Bachelor of Applied Science for students who have completed 41 credits of technical training (including flight or military training). That’s more than a third of the way to your degree!
