Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering
The Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (MSAE) is housed within the Aerospace Engineering department, and provides formal advanced study, preparing students for careers in the aerospace industry and in research and development through a graduate-level thesis. This program is planned to augment the individual student’s engineering and science background with adequate depth in areas of aeroacoustics, nondestructive testing, aerodynamics, design and optimization, propulsion, aerospace structures, composites, computational fluid dynamics and other concerns of aerospace engineering. Candidates select courses and a thesis research topic that prepare them for the aerospace engineering profession, or that prepare them to continue on to doctoral studies.
A graduate degree in aerospace engineering enables students to obtain a deeper understanding of complex engineering concepts, thereby paving the way to aerospace research and development, or a career in engineering education. The thesis provides an excellent opportunity for students to perform research in an area of interest with individual expert faculty guidance.
Embry-Riddle's aerospace engineering program is well known throughout the aerospace industry, and the department maintains a formalized interaction with many aerospace firms. The faculty are dedicated to serving the students, and all of them have excellent backgrounds in a variety of specializations.
