Master of Science in
Aerospace Engineering

Recognized worldwide for aviation and aerospace excellence, ERAU has offered master’s degrees in Aerospace Engineering since 1985. The Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (MSAE) program at ERAU is designed for students who might already have a degree in aeronautics, aerospace engineering, or a related field who now wish to further their education.  Embry-Riddle’s graduate programs in Aerospace Engineering provide students with a favorable balance of practical and theoretical training using the most current techniques and tools available to engineers.

Students augment their engineering and science background with studies in aeroacoustics, nondestructive testing, aerodynamics, design and optimization, propulsion, aerospace structures, and other topics in aerospace engineering. This paves the way to aerospace research and development or a career in engineering education.

Candidates for this degree program can select courses that prepare them for the aerospace engineering profession or that prepare them to continue on to doctoral studies. A typical first year will include Aerospace Engineering core courses and graduate-level electives.

A minimum of 30 credit hours of graduate-level work is required for this degree.

The Department of Aerospace Engineering has the world’s largest Aerospace Engineering student enrollment and has been highly rated and top-ranked for the last 16 years.

Embry-Riddle was recently ranked among the Best Regional Universities in the South (No. 9), and No. 4 “Most Innovative Schools” in the 2016 Best Colleges guidebook published by U.S. News and World Report.
