Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will offer two new doctoral degree programs in 2009, including the first Ph.D. in Aviation in the U.S.

The new Ph.D. in Aviation program will allow students to pursue interests in aviation in a multidisciplinary environment. The flexible, online program will require one week a year on campus and will take about three years to complete.

Embry-Riddle is also offering a new Ph.D. program in Engineering Physics at the Daytona Beach Campus, which covers topics in space physics, upper atmospheric physics, remote sensing, spacecraft instrumentation, spacecraft systems engineering, and control of aerospace systems.

"These doctoral programs are designed to give both working professionals and research professionals the opportunity to pursue their intellectual interests through rigorous programs and meet their professional goals to prepare them to serve as our aviation, science, and engineering technology leaders of tomorrow," said Dr. John P. Johnson, Embry-Riddle president.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the world’s largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation and aerospace. The main campus of Embry-Riddle is located six miles north east of the Spruce Creek Fly-in, at the Daytona Beach International Airport.
