Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona was ranked by U.S. News and World Report as having the nation’s best aerospace-aeronautical combined engineering program. The Prescott campus beat out both the United States Air Force Academy and California Polytechnic State University for the top spot on the list.
“This No. 1 ranking reflects the caliber of our faculty, and is exemplified by the quality and hard work of our students and alumni,” Mark Sensmeier, the aerospace engineering department chair, said in a press release.
“With the addition of our brand-new, 52,000-square-foot STEM education center, we now have even more lab and undergraduate research space,” Ron Madler, dean of the College of Engineering at the Prescott Campus, said in the release.
“That, and the addition of our software engineering degree program should help to propel our College of Engineering even higher in future rankings.”
