The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program at Embry-Riddle leaves its graduates with deeper problem-solving skills, design skills, and engineering judgment as well as fundamental industry knowledge and research experience. Program faculty members have extensive backgrounds in engineering, technology, and related disciplines, and even non-technical core courses are taught by subject matter experts in their corresponding disciplines.
Early on in the program, students take an Introduction to Research course that immerses them in hands-on research. Throughout the duration of the program, students learn about the purposes of research, how to define problems, how to design appropriate methodologies, and how to evaluate outcomes. All of this prepares the graduate for conducting applied research in the real world.

With the rapid advancement of science and technology in today’s world, every industry needs highly qualified engineers who can keep innovation moving forward. Offered entirely online through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide, this specialized degree program will prepare you to put your engineering skills to work in a variety of industries.
Through the use of cutting-edge virtual labs and simulation methods, students will develop the skills to design, refine and apply engineering technologies across a range of industries. You can also choose to target your studies with a particular concentration including Aeronautical Science, Aviation Safety, Helicopter Operations and Safety, Logistics Management, Management Information Systems, Occupational Safety and Health, Project Management, Security and Intelligence, Transportation and Unmanned Aerial Systems.
Students are also eligible to engage in cooperative study/internships and may elect to seek out those enriching opportunities.
The Engineering Technology Area of Concentration is the degree area where credit for prior engineering technology learning is housed or where students can take courses to learn about engineering technology. Many students bring in all or part of this credit based on prior engineering or engineering technology training or experience. However, shortages in the minimum credit required can be made up by taking courses in the following related disciplines: Aeronautical Science, Aviation Safety, Helicopter Operations and Safety, Unmanned Aerial Systems, Transportation, Logistics Management, Management Information Systems, Occupational Safety and Health, Project Management, Security and Intelligence.
Many Embry-Riddle courses are designed to teach the same skills and knowledge that engineering technology students have acquired through experience and training. Students who complete courses in the same engineering specialty for which they were granted credit would be duplicating coverage of the same subject matter. Credit for completion of such courses will not be applied to degree requirements.
