Master of Science in
Aviation and Aerospace Sustainability
Growing the aviation/aerospace industry while caring for our environment is a major technical and business challenge. Government and industry organizations around the world are allocating vast resources to maximize efficiency and satisfy global demand while also meeting our responsibilities to future generations. To propel this movement, forward-thinking experts are urgently needed.
If you’re ready to make a significant difference in creating a cleaner and more robust aviation/aerospace industry for generations to come, Embry-Riddle’s online master's degree in Aviation and Aerospace Sustainability will place you at the forefront.
Across the globe, industry leaders are committed to finding innovative solutions that integrate both economic and environmental sustainability. At the Paris Air Show in June 2019, Chief Technology Officers from seven aerospace manufacturers pledged to enhance aviation sustainability and shield the planet.
Airlines for America (A4A), the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO), and the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) have all committed to finding a path to carbon neutral growth. FAA programs such as the Noise Compatibility Program and Voluntary Airport Low Emissions (VALE) Program assist airports in realizing stable levels of economic growth and developing social programs consistent with the needs and values of their local communities, thus reducing environmental impacts.
In this online graduate program, you will explore how technical advances and improved management practices can help companies meet both operational and environmental goals. You will learn the skills and methods necessary to implement sustainable practices in the aviation/aerospace industries and beyond.

The Master of Science in Aviation and Aerospace Sustainability (MSAAS) degree program is designed to provide students with knowledge and comprehensive decision making skills to act as forward thinking managers of aviation and aerospace industry programs. In the program aviation/aerospace sustainability is examined from two perspectives: 1) aviation and aerospace industries as business entities needing to remain viable and 2) as value added partners in the pursuit of sustainable solutions for conservation or renewability of the world’s resources. Today many aviation and aerospace industries operate on a global scale and require an in depth understanding of both viewpoints to sustain as well as advance operations. The MSAAS will provide a collaborative learning environment rich with opportunities to challenge current thought processes, work in autonomous or group settings and connect with diverse populations across the world.
