You don’t get to be the best aerospace university in the world without making friends in high places.

Embry-Riddle partners with some of the biggest companies in the world, including Boeing, NASA, and Diamond Aircraft.

Our corporate and government partnerships are established connections that help our students secure impressive internships and co-ops and assist in developing solutions to today’s and tomorrow’s aeronautical and aerospace problems.

Here at the world’s largest aviation-oriented university, our focus on applied research is unique. We have the faculty, students, technological resources, and drive to make real things happen.

Using the state-of-the-art technology housed in our labs, students and faculty at Embry-Riddle conduct approximately $14 million per year in applied research.

Currently, students are working with faculty and researchers with industry and government partners to develop new biofuels, green vehicles and aircraft, advanced propulsion systems, renewable energy sources and unmanned autonomous systems, just to name a few.

The hands-on opportunities, like the jet dragster project or the NASA Space Grant-funded, high-altitude balloon project, help to solidify skills learned in the classroom and gave me direction in my chosen engineering degree.
