Kansas State University's avionics program has been accredited by the National Center for Aerospace and Transportation Technologies, the university announced Wednesday.

The accreditation means the program, offered at K-State Salina, meets or exceeds the center's high educational standards. In order to be awarded Accredited Training Provider status, K-State Salina had to demonstrate a commitment to quality following an intensive curriculum, facilities and faculty evaluation.

"Our students benefit from the program being accredited by the National Center for Aerospace and Transportation Technologies because it validates our teaching using the latest in technology," said Raylene Alexander, assistant professor of aviation and K-State avionics program lead. Avionics courses on the Salina campus are built around advanced technologies such as the Garmin G-1000 and Garmin GNS 430s and 530s.
