About Civil Engineering at the Daytona Beach, FL Campus

Civil engineers plan, design, and build the infrastructures on which we rely. At ERAU’s Daytona Beach Campus, they bring aerospace technology to this established engineering field, which results in a unique educational environment for students.

Housed in the Civil Engineering Department of the College of Engineering, the M.S. in Civil Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is a fully accredited degree that builds on undergraduate education. With disciplines in transportation, materials, geotechnical, and structural engineering, students can translate their academic accomplishments into opportunities, continuing the legacy of successful graduates entering the workforce.
