President's Message

At Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, we're committed to providing our nearly 1,700 students with an unparalleled educational experience. We continue to enhance our learning environment, degree programs and resources to add even more value to a Vaughn education, helping to put each student on the path to individual success.

In fact, 92 percent of our graduates are employed or continue their educations within one year of graduation, and those who go on to pursue a graduate degree do so at institutions such as Columbia, Stony Brook and Texas A&M. Vaughn is also home to one of the only master's degrees in airport management in the Northeast, a program uniquely targeted to a growing industry that employs thousands. Launched just a few years ago, this program is one of many ways we're investing in the future of our college–and in our students. Just this year we've added two new bachelor's degrees in aeronautical sciences and mechanical engineering. All of our engineering technology programs are ABET-accredited, and our mechatronic engineering program is one of only three ABET-accredited mechatronic programs in the country.

We recently added a $1-million, state-of-the-art flight simulator laboratory, an air traffic control laboratory and invested another $1-million in a new engineering, chemistry and physics laboratory to support the new bachelor of science mechanical engineering program. A new two-story library and teaching and learning center opened last year as part of a $45-million expansion of our academic and training facilities.

Vaughn is also on the leading-edge of innovative educational programming. From our learning communities that pair diverse classes in an intersecting curriculum, to our Federal Aviation Administration programs and certificates, or our international programs, Vaughn College provides its students with the resources they need to succeed here–and around the globe. I encourage you to become one of them.
