B.S. in Engineering

Worldwide Embry-Riddle Bachelor of Science in Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) degree is designed from a multidisciplinary perspective with subject matter from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, aeronautical, and systems engineering. The educational focus is anticipated to support the growth and innovative development of aerospace technologies and systems and address current industry challenges. The program educational outcome is to graduate engineers that can enter into research, development, and design positions, function effectively on multidisciplinary teams, and contribute to the advancement in engineering-related projects upon graduation.

The BSE targets the high-school graduate, in addition to non-traditional and transfer students, to provide knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) correlating to comprehension and application of essential engineering concepts. The curriculum features: 19 hours of mathematics, 10 hours of calculus-based physics, 66 hours of engineering, 6 hours of a senior level design project, and 27 hours of economics, communications, social sciences, and humanities.
