Master of Science in
Unmanned & Autonomous Systems Engineering

Embry-Riddle has been a pioneering institution in the field of unmanned and robotics education. Now with the Master of Science in Unmanned & Autonomous Systems Engineering, a student’s prior engineering education and interest in unmanned flight is the ideal combination to take their career to the next level. Whether students are recent graduates or working professionals, a master’s degree in this engineering field will help them transition into new, exciting roles in the burgeoning field of unmanned flight.

According to a study by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, more than 100,000 unmanned aerial systems jobs are projected by 2025. Degree holders work in a number of industries including military, government, energy, transportation, telecommunications, and even entertainment.

Students will benefit from small classes and hands-on learning as they proceed through the Unmanned & Autonomous Systems Engineering curriculum.

If so inclined, a student may choose the Unmanned Aircraft Systems area of concentration, building a deep understanding of problems in the field through development of an operational aircraft and control station. A concentration is not required for this graduate program. 

Beyond the aircraft focus, students will study unmanned systems related to automobiles, surface and undersea marine vessels, and spacecraft.
