SIU Aviation Career Days

Our annual Career Days offer students a chance to explore pathways to a career in aviation. Students get to tour the SIU Transportation Education Center facilities and meet with SIU's School of Aviation faculty and staff. They also get to learn what it's like to work for major airlines like United and American, hearing from SIU alumni who are now leaders in the industry.

And, yes, airfare is included!
