CAU’s History: 125 years in the making

California Aeronautical University is proud to be a part of a group of universities providing career-focused learning in California for over 125 years.

CAU’s sister institution, SBBCollege, opened its’ doors in 1888 with the sole purpose of preparing students for a constantly evolving world, by offering an education designed to keep up with the changing times.

CAU proudly continues that tradition today. “We are extremely excited to launch this university and help students start great careers in aviation,” said Matthew Johnston, President of CAU. “As a pilot myself, I’m thrilled to see more and more students enter the field.”
