Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide Reviews - Bachelor's in Aviation
Review of Aviation Bachelors Degrees
As a result of my studies at Embry-Riddle Aeronautic University (ERAU), I invented an Aviation Safety System and definitely prepared me for my future career. Many other universities offer only a piece of paper on graduation and not the skills needed to enter the job market.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide (ERAU-WW) campus is an excellent place to get an education in related to the aeronautical industry. The provide classes that are both in classroom or online. This provides student the flexibility to choose courses that meet their needs. The worldwide campus is designed for non traditional students or students that are working full time with many of the in class courses beginning in the evening. The university as a whole is really supportive of the military and is understanding when duty calls the student away unexpectedly. My favorite quality of the educational opportunity at ERAU-WW is their rolling (and accelerated) semesters. Each semester is designed to last for 9-11 weeks. In class options have 5 semesters throughout the year with several classes offered during each. The online classes have a rolling semester option in the same time limit but new courses begin 10 out of the 12 months every year. This gives students an opportunity to take classes when they can either afford to or when their schedule permits. Finally, the instruction provided at ERAU is professional and taught by knowledgeable professionals from within the fields that they teach.
Embry-Riddle offered challenging and enriching course curriculum that stimulated my mind, and kept me very busy during each class. However, the flexibility that online classes afforded me was the ability to spend more time with my family while I was able to self-pace many of my classes. As an air traffic controller in the military, I was able to apply my knowledge of aeronautics to my job, and also learn an incredible amount about the legal, social, and environmental influences on the aviation industry. The diversity of the classes also presented amazing opportunities to experience working with and interacting with my peers and instructors from all around the world. I would recommend ERAU to anyone who is pursuing an aviation related degree because the level of service and expertise I received from ALL agencies in the school (instructors, counselors, advisors, financial aid, etc.) was professional, respectful, and dignified. I am proud to be an alumni of ERAU and look forward to pursuing even higher education with this incredible institution.
Military friendly school. Professional experienced in aeronautics staff. Very understanding during deployments and TDYs. Quality of education is comparable with other colleges, it is regionally accredited and offers Bachelor's Degrees with affordable tuition. They also lower tuition to match DoD TA for Military Members.
Embry Riddle Aeronautical University was a great school and aviation program to augment a career in military aviation. By far it was the best decision one could make to be a stepping stone for success as far as professional development and promotions. ERAU is very familiar and well aligned with the military and its education policies and tuition assistance. It made pursuit of a bachelors degree seamless and totally relevant to my 24 year career. Granted any college level course work is challenging but the important thing is to enjoy the field of study and Embry-Riddle certainly made it fun and worth while.
The course work was challenging, interesting, and incredibly helpful in preparing me to step into the aviation career field. The school is well known and my degree has not gone unnoticed. The instructors were knowledgeable, their aviation/subject-matter experience greatly contributed to a better overall learning experience. The hardest part for me was dealing with the campus advisors and the VA using my GI Bill. Most of the people were uninformed and there were multiple mishaps with payments. I do recommend keeping track of every single transaction between the VA and this school right down to the last dollar. My degree was withheld because of a mix-up that the school caused, which in turn held me back from various employment opportunities waiting for my transcripts.
