With the rapid advancement of science and technology in today’s world, every industry needs highly qualified engineers who can keep innovation moving forward. Offered entirely online through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide, this specialized degree program will prepare you to put your engineering skills to work in a variety of industries.
Through the use of cutting-edge virtual labs and simulation methods, students will develop the skills to design, refine and apply engineering technologies across a range of industries. You can also choose to target your studies with a particular concentration including Aeronautical Science, Aviation Safety, Helicopter Operations and Safety, Logistics Management, Management Information Systems, Occupational Safety and Health, Project Management, Security and Intelligence, Transportation and Unmanned Aerial Systems.
Students are also eligible to engage in cooperative study/internships and may elect to seek out those enriching opportunities.
Engineering Technology Area of Concentration
The Engineering Technology Area of Concentration is the degree area where credit for prior engineering technology learning is housed or where students can take courses to learn about engineering technology. Many students bring in all or part of this credit based on prior engineering or engineering technology training or experience. However, shortages in the minimum credit required can be made up by taking courses in the following related disciplines: Aeronautical Science, Aviation Safety, Helicopter Operations and Safety, Unmanned Aerial Systems, Transportation, Logistics Management, Management Information Systems, Occupational Safety and Health, Project Management, Security and Intelligence.
Sources of Prior Learning Credit include the following:
- Transfer credit earned at accredited degree-granting colleges and universities.
- The recommendations published by the American Council on Education for U.S. Military training and experience, as well as training conducted by other government agencies and private organizations.
- Prior-learning credit established by the University for certain engineering and aviation licenses and ratings as they relate to this degree.
Many Embry-Riddle courses are designed to teach the same skills and knowledge that engineering technology students have acquired through experience and training. Students who complete courses in the same engineering specialty for which they were granted credit would be duplicating coverage of the same subject matter. Credit for completion of such courses will not be applied to degree requirements.
