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.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
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.
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
Electrical Engineering graduates help lay the foundation of modern technology, with electronic devices enabling everything from digital computers to satellite navigation.
Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
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.
Master of Aerospace Engineering/Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering
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.
Master of Science in Civil Engineering
Civil engineers plan, design, and build the infrastructures on which we rely. At Embry-Riddle we bring aerospace technology to this established engineering field, which results in a unique educational environment for you.
Master of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering
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.
Master of Science in Electrical & Computer Engineering
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.
Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
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.
Master of Science in Software Engineering
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.
Master of Science in Systems Engineering
The Master of Science in Systems Engineering program is designed to provide the foundations of the systems engineering processes to develop and implement solutions to today’s complex engineering design and operational problems.
Master of Science in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering
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.
Certificate of Study in Airworthiness Engineering
The Certificate of Study in Airworthiness Engineering program offers a broad understanding of the overall mission, flight dynamics, operations, and airworthiness lifecycles in both civil and military contexts, while also exploring applicable engineering and scientific principles associated with mission airframes, propulsion systems and operational implications that create airworthy designs.
