The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has added six new undergraduate and graduate degree programs, offering educational opportunities related to recent developments in the field. Most of these programs will begin this fall at various ERAU locations.

As the commercial space travel industry is being cultivated, ERAU claims to be the first school in the world to add a bachelor’s degree in Commercial Space Operations. The program will cover topics such as space policy, operations, regulation and certification, space flight safety, space program training, management and planning. It will be offered at the Daytona Beach, Florida, campus.

Also at the Daytona Beach campus, ERAU will offer a master’s degree in Unmanned Autonomous Systems Engineering that tackles the growing use of unmanned aerial vehicles. In addition to UAVs, the program will cover autonomous boats, submarines and ground vehicles.

Airport security has also been recognized by ERAU as a growing field. The school’s bachelor’s degree in Aviation Security program will begin online in July and will also be offered at the Worldwide Campus education centers. There are currently more than 150 ERAU Worldwide Campuses, a majority of which are located in the United States.

Additional degrees include a bachelor’s degree in Global Business, offered at the Prescott, Arizona campus, which covers languages, cultures and business practices, a master’s degrees in Aviation Finance at the Daytona Beach campus, which focuses on aviation economics, finance and leasing, and a master’s degree in Engineering Management at the Worldwide Campus.
