At ERAU, our academic environment promotes success. We offer students free one-on-one tutoring and professors maintaining a minimum of ten office hours per week. We provide a hands-on education and even have internship opportunities with all the major and regional airlines, aerospace contractors, NASA and government agencies. Also, we are entirely dedicated to undergraduate study-meaning not only are all of the classes and labs are taught by full professors, but our students are not competing with graduate students for our facilities or the professors’ assistance.
