    Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Daytona Beach Reviews

    I transferred into Embry-Riddle in Fall 2017 as an International Student from India. Of course, all the credits didn’t get transferred due to the difference in the education system, but their Registrar helped me with skipping certain classes by taking Course Equivalency exams, since I had knowledge about those classes. I have successfully skipped one year of college and I am now a junior currently majoring in Aerospace Engineering. What’s more, Embry-Riddle has a scheme that lets you get your Master’s degree in the same field in a year! It is called the Accelerated Master’s Degree, which lets you take Graduate level classes in your senior year of your Bachelor’s degree. Overall, in terms of academics, Embry-Riddle lives up to its name of providing wholesome education in any major.

    Embry-Riddle was by far the most beautiful University I have visited. All the buildings reminded me of the future and their new student center-wow! Their flight line was very acceptable and their stimulators were amazing. I would by far give this university a 10/10. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. They explained everything accordingly and directly. The only downfall this university is the cost to attend, but I can definitely see why.
    I love Embry-Riddle! As student, they are dedicated in preparing you for your career and have a solid reputation in their academics. It is among the best college to enroll in should your passions reside in aviation, engineering, and even business. The community is build from a diverse group or professors and student body that range in a vast collection of areas of study from all over the globe. You will not find any other place with a more dedicated group of students. Many companies look to recruit from Embry-Riddle because of this fact. I will always and forever be an Eagle!
