At Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, what we do — and do best — is teach the science, practice, and business of the world of aviation and aerospace. \r\n\r\nSince it was founded just 22 years after the Wright brothers’ first flight, the University and its graduates have built an enviable record of achievement in every aspect of aviation and aerospace.\r\n\r\nThe curriculum at Embry-Riddle covers the operation, engineering, research, manufacturing, marketing, and management of modern aircraft and the systems that support them. The University engages in extensive research, consulting, and related activities that address the unique needs of aviation, aerospace, and related industries.
