Baylor Institute of Air Science
Our Mission: Educate a new generation of dedicated aviation professionals, advance our understanding of the aerospace environment, and promote the academic and spiritual growth of our students.
The Institute for Air Science was created in 1991 with the goal of advancing Baylor University's mission through research, public service and the education of a new generation of pilots. In the same year, the institute initiated the Bachelor of Science in Aviation Sciences (B.S.A.) degree, and graduated its first class in 1995.
The degree provides a balance of aeronautical theory and application combined with an impeccable college education on a tradition-rich campus. The result is an academic experience that fully equips our students to grow into leaders in the aviation industry. A recent study has shown that the best performing pilots have obtained flight instructor certification, received advanced pilot training in college, and graduated with collegiate aviation degrees - all of which you will achieve at Baylor University!
