- PhD in Aerospace Engineering
- The objective of the Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering is to provide an opportunity for highly motivated students with a strong science and engineering background to participate in a program of research and course work in the areas of aerospace structures, propulsion and aerodynamic systems, while earning their doctoral degree.
- PhD in Aviation
- Embry-Riddle's Ph.D. in Aviation is a flexible degree program in that it is offered primarily online but includes three six-day residencies at designated campuses. The degree is open to aviation professionals including flight crew members, air traffic controllers, industry technical representatives, aviation educators, government employees, and others wishing to advance their knowledge and enhance their careers with a Ph.D. in Aviation.
- PhD in Engineering Physics
- The objective of this Ph.D. program is to provide advanced education and research opportunities to exceptional students by providing a research environment that fosters collaboration, creative thinking, and publishing of findings in nationally recognized journals. Areas of research emphasis will build upon existing research in the Physical Sciences Department. These include the measurement, theory and modeling of the near-space and space neutral and plasma environment, studies of the Sun and stellar activity, orbital stability and dynamics, engineering related to spacecraft instrumentation and remote sensing measurements, and the design and implementation of electro-optical and radar systems.
