Six New Degrees at Embry-Riddle Meet Growing Needs in Aviation, Space, Global Business

The degrees will educate professionals in aviation finance, aviation security, commercial space operations, engineering management, global business and unmanned systems engineering.


Technical corporations need individuals who understand the organization’s technical work and can successfully manage those who do that work. Bridging the gap between engineering and management, Embry-Riddle’s degree will prepare technical professionals to advance their careers in management. Depending on their career objectives, students will be able to pursue a concentration in financial management, leadership, logistics and supply chain management, management, project management, systems engineering or aviation/aerospace management. The program, which starts in August, will be offered online and at selected Worldwide Campus education centers.

Unmanned Autonomous Systems Engineering (Daytona Beach Campus)

The revolution in autonomous vehicle systems has created tremendous pockets of economic growth as manufacturers explore civil and commercial UAS applications ranging from law enforcement, search and rescue and border security to Earth observation, agriculture and communications. Embry-Riddle’s degree, which starts this fall, prepares students to design, develop and support systems ranging from remote control to full autonomy. The program covers the engineering of all autonomous vehicles, including fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, boats, submarines and ground vehicles.
