Colleges at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University: our name says it all. We're about teaching the science, technology and management of aviation and aerospace. The curriculum at Embry-Riddle covers the operation, engineering, research, manufacturing, marketing and management of modern aircraft and the systems that support them. Yet, there's more to our University than meets the sky!
There are approximately 2,400 students enrolled in the 10 degree programs administered by the COA. To achieve the high level of quality education demanded by the aviation profession, and to meet the needs of the 21st century student, the College of Aviation (COA) is organized into five academic departments. These departments are Aeronautical Science, Applied Aviation Sciences, Doctoral Studies, Aviation Maintenance Science and Flight Training. In addition, COA is composed of several facilities: the College of Aviation building, the Advanced Simulation Center, the Flight Operations Center, the Emil Buehler Aviation Maintenance Science (AMS) building, the Sam Goldman Fleet Maintenance Hangar and the AMS Hangar.
The College of Arts and Sciences (COAS) is an exciting place to be. The ever-evolving academic programs, diverse faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and bright, enthusiastic students are all part of an outstanding learning environment. Our faculty- more than 140 strong- are leaders in their fields, and consistently recognized for their outstanding research and teaching. COAS at Embry-Riddle, Daytona Beach is a diverse learning community consisting of four academic departments (Human Factors, Humanities & Social Sciences, Mathematics and Physical Sciences) and three ROTC units. Student success is our only goal, so students are encouraged to participate in numerous cooperative learning experiences, industry internships, student clubs and undergraduate research projects, to enhance classroom work with real-world experience and applications.
The College of Business (COB) represents outstanding teachers and scholars within the two academic departments (Department of Economics, Finance and Information Systems and Department of Management, Marketing and Operations), offering both undergraduate and graduate business degrees, as well as a minor in business. COB courses are state-of-the-art and include specific business disciplines, as well as management in the aviation industry. We are constantly expanding our course content and offerings to accommodate student interests, in an effort to provide the latest information and innovations in the aviation and business fields. Our students are encouraged to participate in activities outside of the classroom that include cooperative learning, internships and study-abroad opportunities. Our graduates are employed by national and international airlines, aviation industry leaders such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Rolls Royce, and aviation regulatory agencies such as the FAA.
The College of Engineering’s (COE) programs (Aerospace Engineering, Electrical, Computer, Software, & Systems Engineering, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering) are recognized for their rigor, innovation and balance between theory and practice. As the largest educator of aerospace engineers in the nation, COE plays a vital role in replenishing the dwindling aerospace workforce, and maintaining our nation’s pre-eminence in aviation and aerospace. Our faculty and students are engaged in inter-disciplinary research, focused on finding solutions to problems that matter and developing technologies which serve the needs of the aerospace and aviation industry. Prospective students will find very engaging programs offered in the College of Engineering. Graduates have the tools for continued intellectual development and the practice of life-long learning.
