Overview

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University combines Embry-Riddle’s expertise in aviation and aerospace with the foundational benefits of two interrelated fields, resulting in research outcomes such as avoidance systems for unmanned vehicles, assured systems in cybersecurity, or modeling and simulation.

The Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EE&CS) is a terminal degree program designed to demonstrate a student’s mastery in her/his field and ability to perform original research.

The degree program is research-oriented and will prepare graduates for careers in research and development in the corporate, government or academic arenas.

Key facts

The Ph.D. in EE&CS degree program is housed in the Department of ECSSE in the College of Engineering at the Daytona Beach Campus, which generates significant research funding through recognized organizations and corporations. 

Students are even given the chance to contribute to priority projects. Ph.D. candidates are mentored by faculty who actively engage with professional associations, publishing and presenting their work.

This program prepares graduates to contribute their knowledge, skills, and research expertise to academia, industry, and government. 

With overarching research focuses in “detect and avoid” for unmanned systems and in cybersecurity and assured systems engineering for aerospace and aviation, the Ph.D. candidate will explore a research topic that culminates in a qualifying exam and successful dissertation defense. 

Programme Structure

The program focuses on three general areas of research:

  • “Sense and avoid” technologies for unmanned aircraft systems
  • Aviation and aerospace cybersecurity
  • Next generation software- and systems-engineering practices specific to assured systems, and modeling and simulation.
  • The program faculty has strong presence in “sense and avoid” for unmanned aircraft systems, aviation and aerospace cybersecurity, next generation software- and systems-engineering practices, including how to cost-effectively produce certifiable assured systems, and modeling and simulation.
  • Within the Department of Electrical, Computer, Software, and Systems Engineering (ECSSE), faculty have made significant contributions to recognized journals and conferences, as well as  obtained external research funding from groups such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), NASA, the FAA and more.
