Whether you already have a degree in aeronautics, aerospace engineering, or a related field, you now want to further your education. You’re looking to advance your aerospace engineering knowledge and immerse yourself in research and development.
Embry-Riddle’s graduate programs in Aerospace Engineering can provide you with a favorable balance of practical and theoretical training using the most current techniques and tools available to engineers.
Master of Aerospace Engineering/Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering
Adjacent to Daytona Beach International Airport and just 50 miles north of Kennedy Space Center, ERAU’s Daytona Beach Campus puts you in the middle of the aerospace industry.
Our nearby Eagle Flight Research Center has a 10,000-square-foot hangar with convenient runway access at the international airport in addition to research, instructional, and administrative space. So you’ll get the chance to participate in real-world, hands-on projects.
You’ll also get the opportunity to learn in our high-tech labs, including the Composites Laboratory, Gas Turbine Laboratory, Materials Laboratory, Propulsion Aerodynamics Computational Laboratory, Structures and Instrumentation Laboratory, and Wind Tunnel Laboratory.
Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering
Students with a strong science and engineering background conduct research and coursework in one of three areas of concentration: Aerodynamics and Propulsion, Structures and Materials, and Dynamics and Control.
Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (Available Spring 2017)
The Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (MSAE) provides formal advanced study, preparing students for careers in the aerospace industry and in research and development. The degree 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, dynamics and control, and other areas of aerospace engineering. Candidates can select courses that prepare them for the aerospace engineering profession or that prepare them to continue on to doctoral studies.
Recognized worldwide for aviation and aerospace excellence, ERAU has offered master’s degrees in Aerospace Engineering since 1985 and a Ph.D. since 2013. Our department has the world’s largest Aerospace Engineering student enrollment and has been highly rated.
Faculty members bring both academic and professional experience so students learn relevant subject matter. We’re actively continuing to enhance program quality and attract world-renowned faculty to join.
Program coursework focuses on cutting-edge research and development. Our state-of-the-art labs are specifically for instruction and research in aerodynamics, structures, composites, propulsion, materials, manufacturing, electronics, and computational fluid dynamics. So you’ll get a broad range of aerospace engineering knowledge.
You can further immerse yourself in the program through teaching and research assistantships, as well as internships with major aerospace companies.
With increased global demands to travel longer distances in less time along with the emerging commercial space flight industry, the aerospace engineering field is on the rise.
Aerospace Engineering graduates are in-demand candidates for careers in the following professions and with the following industry leaders:
