Aviation Week Workforce names Penn State second for recruiting

Penn State has been ranked No. 2 in the country amongst aviation and defense companies, a new study says. Aviation Week Workforce asked companies to list the top five institutions from which they recruit, and of the 64 institutions, Penn State was topped only by Purdue University and followed by the University of Illinois.

Among the criteria used for ranking was capacity of courses and research, success of past recruits and diversity.

Four Big Ten universities were in the top five ranking, including Ohio State University which was fourth.
