ERAU
ADVANTAGE

For the master’s degree, you will elect a thesis or non-thesis degree option, in addition to core courses that address both theory and practical implementation of electro-mechanical systems.

In the Ph.D. program, you will conduct guided independent research that will culminate with a dissertation that will add to the knowledge within the field.

Research activities are under the direction of experienced, dedicated ERAU faculty and fellow students in state-of-the-art labs. You will have many professional networking experiences and graduate students may pursue an internship relevant to their area of focus.  

Professional organizations are represented on campus, such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Participation will provide even greater opportunity to mentor undergraduate students and to identify those well suited to your research activities.
