Program Mission Statement: The Interdisciplinary Studies program consists of core requirements and three minors. The core requirements in this program help make our students worldly thinkers who understand that information and skills gleaned from one area of life can be applied to other areas. The program's core requirements respond directly to calls by American corporate leaders for graduates who understand both technology and human behavior. To that end, students choose from courses in the humanities, geography, international studies, philosophy and ethics, and psychology. The core prepares students to connect their three minor fields of study meaningfully and usefully. In the capstone experience, the student chooses a directed study or a co-op in industry. By combining three minors, students design their own degree programs. Such combinations as security or air traffic control/psychology/safety or space studies/computer science/psychology offer combinations of fields that the aerospace industry should find useful. Minors in secondary education, humanities, and mathematics can lead to employment within the industry.

Program Outcomes

Placement and Continuing Education Rates

Program Mission Statement: B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies program consists of general education, core curriculum, a minor and 15 semester hour specialization area. General education provides a broad foundation of study, upon which the IS core expands. The core helps students become effective critical thinkers who understand that information and skills from multiple disciplines can interrelated meaningfully and usefully. The core responds directly to calls by American corporate leaders for graduates who understand both technology and human behavior. To that end, students choose from courses in aviation and aerospace, communication, the humanities, international studies, philosophy and ethics, psychology, and business. In the capstone experience, students choose either a thesis or a cooperative education experience. The element of choice in the program allows students to develop their own degree programs by building on their individual strengths and interests. Depending on their interests, students can prepare for careers in aviation and aerospace and related fields, business, the military, graduate studies, or law school. The IS program seeks to graduate students with an entrepreneurial spirit who will cross boundaries, make creative connections, be flexible in a changing career environment and become leaders in aviation and aerospace.

Program Mission

The ERAU Master of Systems Engineering (MSysE) is designed to equip engineers and managers with the knowledge, tools, and perspective necessary for the analysis, development, and management of systems (products and services) that address customer requirements. The MSysE seeks to do this by considering engineering, technology, environmental, management, risk, and economic factors through viewing the system as a whole over its life cycle.

Program Student Objectives

  • Systems Thinking - Students will understand systems concepts, including the relations among subsystems; will understand the needs of the super-system and their impact on system development; and will understand how the business (enterprise) and technology environment influences system development and its effect on its operating and social environment.
  • Holistic Lifecycle View - Students will be able to analyze stakeholder needs to establish and manage system requirements throughout its life cycle. Students will also be able to evaluate the impact of system requirements in terms of the draw of developmental and operational resources, and the interaction of the system with its environment.
  • System Design - Students will understand and be able to apply different types of system architectures; will be able to evaluate alternatives in developing system concepts; will understand the need for designing for a system’s life cycle; and will be able to develop the processes for validating and verifying a system’s design and transition to operation.
  • Systems Engineering Management - Students will understand the coordination of system life cycle activities and the concurrent development of systems elements; will be able to incorporate the timely integration of both enterprise functions and system specialties into a system’s development; will be able to employ a life cycle process for a given system; and will be able to select appropriate systems engineering planning, monitoring and controlling, and the logistics and operations methods to effect robust system development and implementation.

Program Mission

The Master of Science in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering (MSUASE) degree is a 30-credit, online program designed to enable career establishment and advancement in a rapidly changing field. The program features the development of innovative solutions operating along the spectrum of autonomy, including unmanned aircraft, autonomous cars, robotic surface and underwater vessels, spacecraft, and industrial robots. The degree is built on rigorous multi-disciplinary coursework to provide a flexible option to develop and demonstrate knowledge attainment through project-based experiences. The curriculum features integration and application of concepts, protocols, and techniques in unmanned and autonomous systems: systems engineering, architecture, and design; safety and certification; requirements development analysis; modeling; command, control, and communication (C3); and human factors. Through the review of design, performance, and operational specifications to system testing and evaluation of end-to-end solutions, students gain comprehensive insight and practical experience affecting development, acquisition, fielding, and sustainment of unmanned system designs. The MSUASE culminates in a two-term capstone project, conducted independently or in a team setting, to develop a technical solution to a critical real world challenge and leading to publication.
