About

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University prepares graduates to conduct research into emerging fields that represent both hardware and software.

Overview

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 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.

About Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at the Daytona Beach

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.
