You can’t have a future without the people designing it.

If you’re looking for the people who will build the rocket that goes the highest, you’ve come to the right place. Our students build new engines. They make designs for NASA. They build payloads that go into space, like EagleCam and LLAMAS. They use drones for conservation. They expand on what humanity can do. And most of all, they improve safety.

We know engineering. Our Aerospace Engineering program is ranked No. 4 in U.S. News and World Report and is the largest program of its kind in the nation. Embry-Riddle also developed the first unmanned and autonomous systems engineering program in the nation.

After graduation, alumni go on to build their own companies and work for the best companies in the world. One alumnus, Steve Altemus, launched Intuitive Machines, which is expected to land the first commercial craft on the moon. The company has been awarded multiple contracts from NASA to bring innovative spacecraft and payloads to the moon.

Student works on large NASA hardware.

Our students don’t wait for a class or enough lab space. They build their ideas anyway. But your help can help them get farther even faster. Here, we give them the tools, from collaborations with the FAA, airlines and manufacturers to a state-of-the-art wind tunnel on site and established research centers.

To go the distance, our students need your backing. Your investment in their success can propel them to develop the future.

Support our students in creating rockets, pursuing internships and creating our future.
