Taking education to new heights
Talks about the future—even 10 years into the future—might evoke images of spaceflight, ultramodern infrastructure and other futuristic feats of engineering. While no one knows exactly what the future will look like, higher education institutions in the Greater Daytona Region are more than equipped to get us there.
U.S. News & World Report ranks Florida as the No. 1 state in the country for higher education. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, for example, is one of the country’s leading educators in engineering of all disciplines, including aviation, aerospace and civil engineering. Through being trained by contemporary industry experts, today’s students—and tomorrow’s professionals—will be especially qualified to tackle jobs in engineering, manufacturing and more, all while keeping the Greater Daytona Region at the forefront of industry excellence.
