Master of Science in
Aerospace Engineering

Recognized worldwide for aviation and aerospace excellence, ERAU has offered master’s degrees in Aerospace Engineering since 1985 at the Daytona Beach Campus.

The online Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (MSAE) program at ERAU is designed for students who might already have a degree in aerospace engineering or a related engineering 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. 

The online courses are exactly the same as the courses on the Daytona Beach campus and are taught by the faculty of the College of Engineering’s Department of Aerospace Engineering at Daytona Beach.

Students augment their engineering and science background with studies in computational fluid dynamics, aeroacoustic modeling, rotorcraft aerodynamics, flow control, air-breathing hypersonic and rocket propulsion, autonomous unmanned air and ground vehicles.

Studies also include aircraft and spacecraft guidance, navigation and control, aeroelasticity, composites, nanomaterials, smart materials, structural health monitoring, computational structural mechanics, and design optimization, as well as 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. Also, an available thesis option prepares them to continue on to doctoral studies. A typical plan of study includes Aerospace Engineering core courses and graduate-level electives.

A minimum of 30 credit hours of graduate-level work (10 courses or seven courses plus a thesis) is required for this degree.
