Opportunities for work experience through co-ops and internships abound, with 305 Daytona Beach Campus students and 185 Prescott Campus students awarded positions for credit during the 2021-2022 academic year. Results from the Class of 2020-21 Residential Alumni Survey show that 93.9% of Embry-Riddle graduates of the Daytona Beach and Prescott campuses are either employed or continuing their education within one year of graduation. Embry-Riddle’s 151,000-plus alumni are employed worldwide in the aviation and aerospace industry as well as in business law, engineering, medical, insurance, and other businesses and government organizations. Alumni and their companies offer mentoring, hiring and networking opportunities to alumni.
Students are selected for internships in a variety of ways, including websites, conferences, networking and expos (not all through the Career Services Office). If the student does not want/need credit, or the company does not require that the student be registered with their university co-op/intern program, the Career Services Office will not see the student to capture their experience.
