For nearly a century, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has established a reputation as the oldest, largest, and most prestigious university specializing in aviation and aerospace.
Today, as the only fully accredited, aviation-oriented university in the world, our global reach and leading-edge innovations are opening doors for students throughout continental Europe, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Africa.
As a distance-learning pioneer, our online bachelor’s degrees are renowned worldwide and have been rated among the Top 5 in the U.S since 2014. This means you can complete our programs 100% online, without the need for face-to-face seminars, and it allows busy working professionals or students just starting their academic journeys to study from the comfort of their homes, offices, cafés or while traveling, all on the schedule that works best for them.
We have evolved into a recognized educational leader in Europe, where our programs may award credits to professionals with more than 12 years of experience via an “Experiential Learning Evaluation.”
You also can combine the Abitur with an Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) to earn prior learning credits either toward our Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics or toward the Bachelor of Science in Pilot Operations degree.
In addition, our Europe Campus location in the House of Logistics and Mobility, within walking distance of Germany’s Frankfurt Airport, provides you the opportunity to build vital practical experience and strong professional networks through our close links with nearby aviation and aerospace companies.
