College of Engineering

college of engineering students

The College of Engineering will help you develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be a productive engineer, starting from your first day as a student at Embry-Riddle Prescott. From hands-on design projects to theoretical analysis, you’ll be challenged, supported, prepared, and mentored by some of the nation’s most outstanding faculty in the COE's three departments — Aerospace EngineeringMechanical Engineering, and Computer, Electrical, & Software Engineering. This will assure you’ll be well-equipped to take the next steps toward your future, whether you choose graduate school or a career.

Update: Jul. 9, 2018 - Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has been notified that the books raised during the Prescott campus book drive to aid the Mosul Central Library’s rebuilding effort have been received. Those working to reconstruct the library in Iraq have produced a video of thanks to Embry-Riddle students, staff, faculty, and everyone in the surrounding Prescott area for their contributions. “This precious collection of scientific and humanitarian books will support the students of Mosul University and other universities in the province after the complete destruction of our library by the terrorist organization ISIS,” said Mohammad Jasim Mohammad, Secretary-General of Mosul Libraries. “We would like to give our thanks and appreciation to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the United States for their support and donation of these books.” The full video can be viewed below.

The mega–popular website Thrillist is featuring a study of the colleges most likely to land you a job in every state, and you’ll see Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University listed twice. That’s because the career-guidance website Zippia has ranked Embry–Riddle as the No. 1 school in Arizona and Florida for getting a job for the second year in a row – that’s first in Florida out of 146 colleges and universities and first in Arizona out of 48. Using the latest data on job placement ratings for colleges nationwide using the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System  from the National Center for Education Statistics, Zippia published a list of the schools in each state for 2018 with the best record of job placements after graduation. They also factored in employment levels for all graduates 10 years after students earned their degrees. In September, Zippia also ranked Embry–Riddle’s Prescott, Ariz. and Daytona Beach Fla. campuses No. 1 in their respective states where graduates go on to earn the highest salaries.
