Undergraduate Research Projects

Embry-Riddle is fully committed to student research. Nearly 90 percent of our students are directly connected with faculty members and industry partners through sophisticated research, capstone projects and internships. Many students at Embry-Riddle win awards and competitions and publish their research findings on a regular basis.

Students can work with faculty on faculty-led research projects, or they can devise their own research projects, supported by the university’s Ignite program or through other internal university research funding.

Currently, students are working with industry and government partners to develop new biofuels, green vehicles and aircraft, advanced propulsion systems, renewable energy sources and unmanned autonomous systems, to name a few projects.


With its focus on applied research, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University engages in extensive research and consulting, working with private and public organizations to further the technology and systems necessary to aviation, aerospace, and related industries.

With residential campuses in Daytona Beach, Florida and Prescott, Arizona — plus worldwide instruction at more than 125 locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia — Embry-Riddle’s research capability is unsurpassed in the field of aerospace.
