Computers & Technology

a student at a computer

Computers are ever-present in today’s developed societies. We carry smartphones, amuse ourselves with video games, drive vehicles with embedded systems, and we manage our daily lives from computers that are interconnected throughout the world. And, the systems that control modern aircraft and spacecraft represent technology at the highest level.

Embry-Riddle’s computer-related degree programs are designed to ensure that graduates possess the knowledge and the skills that will make them standouts in the job market and in their careers.

To that end, undergraduates in our Computer, Software, and Electrical Engineering programs receive hands-on experience in world-class facilities beginning in their very first semester and culminating in a multidisciplinary capstone project that tests their skills.

Technical Management undergraduates and master’s students are taught the skills to marshal the resources of any organization toward its goals — regardless of their chosen discipline.

Employers choose Embry-Riddle graduates. That’s why students choose Embry-Riddle.

The Bachelor of Science in Cyber Intelligence & Security program prepares graduates who can deal with threats from those who would abuse our world's growing dependency on technology. In reality-based scenarios, students develop the knowledge in computer science and cybersecurity needed to defend the people, data, software, and networks that keep the world safe and productive. Graduates are prepared for professional roles in the rapidly growing field of cybersecurity.

The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering degree presents real-world, hands-on projects like flight control for autonomous aircraft or power control in a hybrid automobile to the student to provide the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills needed to create, test, and evaluate software applications and systems. Students also gain a clear understanding of network integrity and learn about the technical aspects of cyber security to keep those systems safe.
