Faculty send students flying high

At Embry-Riddle Worldwide, we believe industry experience is essential to student success. The College of Aeronautics faculty exemplify this to the highest extreme. Boeing employees. Helicopter pilots. Air traffic controllers. UAS Operators. Researchers. A broad spectrum of aviation professionals coming together to educate and share their experiences with eager students.

We have a global network of adjunct faculty, all of whom have real-world experience. This means they might spend the day as an Air Force Colonel, talking to a four-star general about a secret weapons system, then spend the evening talking to students. It truly becomes a transfer of knowledge rather than a by-the-book lecture.
