About ERAU

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is often considered to be one of the best aviation and aerospace universities in the country, and maybe even the world.

The accredited Prescott campus, established in 1978, offers over a dozen bachelor’s or master’s degree programs to choose from, including Aerospace, Aviation, and Applied Meteorology. One of the facilities on campus houses an advanced weather center and meteorology suite. Another facility houses state-of-the-art engineering and wind tunnel labs. Embry-Riddle strives to have top-notch, industry leading equipment and training. This helps ensure they continue to produce some of the best pilots in the country.

There are nearly 100 clubs and organizations students can choose from on campus, as well as Army and Air Force ROTC. There are three co-ed residence centers on the 539-acre campus.

In-state and out-of-state students pay the same tuition, and many eligible students receive financial aid based on their achievements, though it is not guaranteed.

Prescott, Arizona is a two-hour drive from Phoenix and the Grand Canyon, and is a mile above sea level. The natural desert environment and warm climate provide for spectacular flying conditions. If somehow the excitement of studying aviation and aerospace, the breathtaking views at the Grand Canyon, and all that Phoenix has to offer isn’t enough, Prescott is only a half a day’s drive away from Las Vegas or Los Angeles.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2006

Overall Rating

I had a truly amazing experience here. The aerospace engineering program is well-structured and rigorous, and the faculty are great for the most part. The campus atmosphere just can't be beat in my opinion - small student population, friendly people, clean and well-maintained. I enjoyed the rural setting, unobstructed views of the local area (including the mountains nearby), excellent weather, the nearby hiking/biking trails and lakes. I could go on and on... so many great memories here!

Alumnus - Grad Year 1992

Overall Rating

Embry-Riddle is a great school for aviation, just Make Sure that aviation is what you want to do for the rest of your life. I was interested in a lot of other things and going to ERAU my choices for other studies were obviously limited. The flying in Northern AZ is incredible, I really liked flying to Sedona airport and practicing landings , the airport is perched up on a mesa!
