PhDs in China 2017. You’ve earned your bachelor’s and master’s degrees, but you desire more. To take your education to an even higher level, Embry-Riddle offers a Ph.D. in Aviation. The first Ph.D. in aviation offered in the United States, this innovative program is designed to prepare students like you with cognitive research skills necessary to solve acute problems facing the field of aviation, and to advance the discipline. Through the Ph.D. program, aviation professionals get the chance to pursue the discipline in a diverse, intellectually versatile, multidisciplinary environment. Embry-Riddle offers this program primarily online with the inclusion of three six-day residencies at designated campuses. This way, you can continue working while you get your degree. The Ph.D. program is open to aviation professionals who include flight crew members, air traffic controllers, industry technical representatives, aviation educators, government employees and others wishing to advance their knowledge and enhance their careers. The Ph.D. in Aviation program prepares students to be the leaders and researchers in aviation and aerospace. What impact will you have on the future of the industry? Mission The mission of the Ph.D. in Aviation program is to produce outstanding scholars for careers in research and teaching in the aviation field. At Embry-Riddle, Ph.D. in Aviation students take part in a rigorous, research-driven program that pushes them to their greatest potential. This is accomplished by focusing on Program Educational Goals. They are: Develop mastery of the central theories and concepts in the field of aviation, including foundations, safety management, economics, and regulatory procedures. Pose and solve theory-based and research-based problems designed to advance applications in the field of aviation. Extend the aviation body of knowledge by conceiving, planning, producing, and communicating original research. Develop and demonstrate expertise in instructional processes. Demonstrate leadership, collaboration, and communication necessary for scholarly work in aviation. Specializations Students have the option to pursue studies in one of three specializations: Aviation Safety and Human Factors, Operations, and Intradisciplinary. Specializations may represent a students personal, professional, or research interest. Aviation Safety and Human Factors Overall, technological advances have led to improved safety and human performance in the aviation and aerospace domain. However, these advances have also resulted in new, unexpected challenges and demands. Drawing upon the principles of systems engineering, the goal of this specialization is to equip students with theoretically-based yet practical knowledge and skills in aviation safety and human factors, and prepare them to design, conduct, and apply research in these fields in both current and future operations. Students choosing this specialization will focus on managing risk culture through control of known and yet-to-be discovered techniques and safety applications. In addition to all other required coursework, students must take the following five courses in this specialization: DAV 712 Aviation Safety Management Systems DAV 715 Human Factors in Aviation DAV 716 Management in Systems Engineering DAV 736 User-Centered Design in Aviation (Prereq. DAV 715) DAV 737 Topics in Safety Management Systems (Prereq. DAV 712) Operations Students choosing this specialization will focus on the work that emphasizes research capabilities in a global marketplace while considering industry trends and innovations. In addition to all other required coursework, students must take the following four courses in this specialization: DAV 732 Strategies for Organizational Dynamics in Aviation DAV 733 Globalization and the Aviation Environment DAV 734 Operations Research and Decision Making DAV 735 Current Practices & Future Trends in Aviation Intradisciplinary For students with a broader interest in aviation, this specialization offers a cross-disciplinary approach to aviation where you work with your advisor to build a curriculum appropriate for a student's educational needs. In addition to completing all other required coursework, students in this specialization must complete four courses from Group B and four from Group C. Qualifying Examination Within six months of completing your coursework, and before you can begin working on your dissertation, you are required to pass a two-day qualification examination covering content from all completed courses. Students should plan on up to 16 hours to complete the exam over a two-day period. Passing the qualifying examination will require that the student achieves a satisfactory score on each section. Questions on the exam are prepared and subsequently graded by a committee of the program faculty, with the oversight and approval of the Department Chair. The exam will be graded for course subject mastery, which will include organization of the response, clarity of thought, depth of understanding, accuracy of information presented, and quality of writing with an emphasis on demonstration of research knowledge and ability. The student will be admitted to candidacy status upon successful completion of the qualifying exam and all course work, and will be enrolled in DAV 901 in the subsequent semester. The student will be allowed one retake each for the components of the exam should he or she fail to achieve at least a satisfactory score on either component. The student will need to retake only the component failed. Dissertation First and foremost, a Ph.D. is a rigorous research degree. Students will likely spend far more time preparing for and writing their doctoral dissertation than they will in the Embry-Riddle virtual classroom. In order to complete the dissertation, students will choose an original research topic based on an area of interested developed during their course of study. Students are provided opportunities as early as their first residency to explore potential research topics and receive feedback and insight from faculty, industry advisors, and graduates. During the second residency, students will enter the pre-dissertation phase, during which they will prepare and present a prospectus describing the likely area of research for the dissertation. Students will also meet extensively with their advisor to discuss their prospectus. This prospectus will assist program administrators, faculty, and the student to identify a faculty member who has expertise in the student's chosen area of inquiry, and who will ultimately be assigned as the chair of the student's dissertation committee. A minimum of two other members will serve on the committee. After completing the writing of the dissertation, students must then defend their findings during an oral defense before the committee to earn their Ph.D. Financials Made Easier Earning a Ph.D. in Aviation from Embry-Riddle comes with costs, but we’ve worked to make it as easy as possible for students to receive assistance and pay for their tuition and other expenses. Veterans are eligible to receive Financial Aid through several federal programs, and other students can receive aid from the government and private lenders. We also break down the Estimated Cost of Attendance to see what expenses to expect during an online semester or on-campus residency. Finally, we accept credit cards and personal checks as Payment Options, which can be made online, by mail, or by telephone call. Many students successfully earn financial assistance from external organizations in the form of tuition assistance, scholarships, and grants. [-]
