Aerospace Engineering Aero Track

Aerospace Engineering Aero Track

Registration is closed for Summer 2019. Registrations for Summer 2020 will open December 3, 2019

Join us for 1 week of pre-college, academic classes!

Our Aerospace AERO pre-college program teaches the fundamentals of aerospace engineering and the science of flight. Classes include aerodynamics, astrodynamics, robotics, propulsion systems, and aircraft design, as well as in-depth study of structures and materials, and computer aided design. Students will collaborate with their peers to learn and apply the latest technology in the aerospace engineering industry.

This is a hands-on course. Students will be working with Embry-Riddle faculty in our engineering labs on air and space vehicles while learning the principles of design. Our elite Aerospace Engineering professors have over 10+ years of experience in the field, and will give students the opportunity to their newly learned skills in competitions throughout the week. Competitions include the aerodynamic flight testing of balsa wood gliders, and the structural testing of 3D printed plastic models.

For: High School Students ages 15-18 who are interested in aerospace engineering

Program Fee: $1250

Program Dates: June 21-26, 2020

Location: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott, 3700 Willow Creek Road, Prescott, AZ 86301

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.

Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.

Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age
