MTSU signs aerospace pact with Civil Air Patrol

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Middle Tennessee State University and Civil Air Patrol's Tennessee Wing have agreed to partner in aerospace education for state high school students in the U.S. Air Force auxiliary's cadet program.

The agreement puts into play the educational resources of the university's Department of Aerospace and College of Basic and Applied Sciences to engage cadets in science and technology pursuits.

Aerospace education is one of the primary missions of the CAP, a 61,000-member volunteer civilian organization founded in 1941 and chartered by Congress to support the Air Force.

Established in 1942, the Department of Aerospace is a signature department at MTSU. Fourteen full-time faculty members, 35 flight instructors and more than 750 majors place it among the largest of the nation's collegiate aviation programs.
