Kansas State University in Salina added four new bachelor's degree options, including unmanned aircraft systems, avionics, airport management and air traffic control, the university said Monday.

The new degree programs, which will be available starting this fall, came about from the growth of the certificate programs K-State already offered in those areas, according to Kurt Barnhart, head of the department of aviation. The university already offers bachelor's degrees in professional pilot and aviation maintenance.

"Expanding the certificate programs into full bachelor's degree programs equips our students for the demands of the industry and allows them more options when pursuing a career in aviation," Barnhart said.
