3. A significant change to the survey instructions was implemented beginning with the Class of 2016-17: Degree completion dates were piped into the survey, and respondents asked to provide their employment status exactly one year post-graduation.  This change  allows for more accurate calculation of one year placement and employment rates.  Exercise caution when making cohort comparisons.

4. A significant change to the University's rate calculations was implemented with the Class of 2016-17.  Previously removed, alumni indicating “out of the workforce due to other reasons” are now included in all calculations and are labeled as “Not Seeking.”  This change aligns the University's  placement and employment rates with the standards proposed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE)  This new calculation will necessarily result in lower rates than the previous formula, but ERAU rates will be more comparable to those reported by institutions adhering to the NACE standards.

NOTE:

1. The effective placement rate consists of the employment rate (working at this time) plus the continuing education rate (out of the work force due to continuing education).

2. Programs with too few respondents are not listed

3. A significant change to the survey instructions was implemented beginning with the Class of 2016-17: Degree completion dates were piped into the survey, and respondents asked to provide their employment status exactly one year post-graduation. This change  allows for more accurate calculation of one year placement and employment rates.  Exercise caution when making cohort comparisons.

4. A significant change to the University's rate calculations was implemented with the Class of 2016-17. Previously removed, alumni indicating “out of the workforce due to other reasons” are now included in all calculations and are labeled as “Not Seeking.” This change aligns the University's placement and employment rates with the standards proposed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). This new calculation will necessarily result in lower rates than the previous formula, but ERAU rates will be more comparable to those reported by institutions adhering to the NACE standards.

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 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 purpose of the Master of Science in Aeronautics degree is to provide the highest quality graduate level education that meets--or exceed--the needs of the aviation industry and our graduate students. 

The philosophy of the Master of Science in Aeronautics is to continually advance the curriculum to meet the needs of the rapidly changing aviation environment. This occurs through the program’s utilization of professors who are experts in their specific disciplines, working to advance the field of aviation through research and scholarship.

Our goal is to maintain a leadership role in aviation-focused graduate studies through excellence, not adequacy, and we will achieve this goal by constantly improving our curriculum to meet the needs of the rapidly changing aviation environment and by utilizing only faculty who are masters in their specific disciplines.

( ) Number of Respondents





 

* Too few respondents to report





 

NOTE:

1. The effective placement rate consists of the employment rate (i.e., working at this time) plus the continuing education rate (i.e., out of the work force due to continuing education)

2. Programs with too few respondents are not listed.

3. A significant change to the survey instructions was implemented beginning with the Class of 2017: Degree completion dates were piped into the survey, and respondents asked to provide their employment status exactly one-year post-graduation. This change allows for more accurate calculation of one-year placement and employment rates. Exercise caution when making cohort comparisons.

4. A significant change to the University's rate calculations was implemented with the Class of 2017. Previously removed, alumni indicating “out of the workforce due to other reasons” are now included in all calculations and are labeled as “Not Seeking.” This change aligns the University's placement and employment rates with the standards proposed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). This new calculation will necessarily result in lower rates than the previous formula, but ERAU rates will be more comparable to those reported by institutions adhering to the NACE standards.
