ERAU's Department of Aeronautical Science has long provided a renowned education in aviation, with a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics degree that is the preeminent program of its kind in the world, along with a B.S. in Aeronautical Science and a B.S. in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Science.
The faculty members in this department are dedicated to aviation students and take seriously the idea that graduates should be "Ready to Work and Prepared to Lead." The student body is highly diverse, coming from all over the globe; all have a drive to succeed in aeronautics-related careers.
Students should have a strong background in science and mathematics. Beyond that, they get invaluable instruction from experienced airline pilots, military pilots, Top Gun graduates, test pilots, and corporate and commuter pilots, along with aeronautical engineers, chief flight instructors, and experts in flight safety, resource management, dispatching, navigation, and other fields essential to success in an aviation career.
The department's academic courses are complemented by the flight curriculum to create a unique blend of academics and flight training. Students graduate with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of flight, prepared to start careers as aviation professionals.
