General Information About Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology
At Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, we're committed to providing our nearly 1,500 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, more than 93 percent of our graduates are employed within six months 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. We recently added a $1-million, state-of-the-art flight simulator laboratory, invested another $300,000 in a new engineering laboratory, and opened a residence hall with sweeping views of Manhattan. Within the next few years, we'll build a new library as part of a $20-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's Air Traffic-Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI), to or our global collaboration with Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology in Hyderabad, India, 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.
