The process of becoming an air traffic controller is very selective, but ASU's Air Traffic Management program hopes to give students an advantage over the competition. The program is part of the FAA's Collegiate Training Initiative, which aims to prepare students for the rigorous FAA Academy. Upperclassmen at ASU get to practice on two air traffic control simulators designed to mimic situations and environments they will see once on the job.
