These programs allow high-achieving students to earn both a bachelor's and master's degree in an accelerated manner.
Students in Embry-Riddle's Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering program can opt to focus on aeronautics, astronautics, or aerospace propulsion in one of the highest-ranked BSAE programs in the United States.
Students in this program can help engineer a better tomorrow, crafting down-to-earth solutions to some of the loftiest global challenges.
Students in the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering get hands-on experience with embedded computer systems on platforms ranging from small mobile robots to systems critical to aviation and aerospace.
Students who enjoy using computers to analyze and solve complex problems that arise in the natural world, human behavior, national security, or business can prepare for a career in government or industry, or lay the foundation for graduate studies in computer science or software engineering.
Electrical Engineering graduates help lay the foundation of modern technology, with electronic devices enabling everything from digital computers to satellite navigation.
With the modern world’s need for high-technology travel and clean energy, the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program provides one of the most in-demand degrees and access to some of the most exciting and innovation-driven career tracks.
Students with a passion for software and technology can learn to create embedded software systems for aerospace, aviation, and a myriad of other applications.
Embry-Riddle's aerospace engineering program is renowned in the aerospace industry, and this program — which offers both thesis and non-thesis options — prepares students for careers in the industry and in research and development.
This degree program prepares students — many of them current engineers and managers looking to enhance their skill set — to address challenges in the development of secure systems and well as maintaining secure operations, maintenance, as well as decommissioning of these systems.
This sought-after degree has thesis and non-thesis options and two areas of focus: digital communications and avionics & radio navigation for the electrical engineering side, and project management and computer systems safety for the computer engineering side.
With advanced knowledge of engineering and a specialization in Electro-Mechanical Systems, graduates are ready to become leading innovators in aerospace, aviation, automotive, or energy.
With a process-oriented approach that integrates communication and management skills with an emphasis on the engineering of real-time embedded software systems, the MSSE degree program prepares students to work on the cutting edge of software development.
Embry-Riddle's M.S. in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering is one of the first and few degrees to innovate the engineering of systems that operate in this exciting, emerging industry.
In this program, students with a strong science and engineering background conduct research and coursework in one of three areas of concentration: Aerodynamics & Propulsion, Structures & Materials, and Dynamics & Control.
The Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EE&CS) prepares graduates to contribute their knowledge, skills, and expertise to research focusing in detect and avoid for unmanned systems and in cybersecurity and assured systems engineering for aerospace and aviation.
This Ph.D. program gives students advanced, research-oriented studies in engineering with a specialization in Electro-Mechanical Systems.
