Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is working with industry partners to prepare thousands of U.S. veterans and transitioning service members for careers in critical fields: information technology and aviation maintenance.

Professionals entering the civilian workforce through MSSA and Aviation Maintenance Technology SkillBridge Program 1200 + Completion rate for MSSA program and Aviation Maintenance Technology SkillBridge Program > 90 % 2500

Microsoft Software & Systems Academy (MSSA) Microsoft and Embry-Riddle launched their MSSA partnership in 2015. Through this 18-week program, veterans earn college credit and are prepared to go to work as server and cloud administrators, cloud applications developers or cybersecurity administrators. Graduates interview with Microsoft or with representatives from 500 hiring partners, including Amazon, Oracle, Dell, Expedia and Southwest Airlines. More than 80% of students who enter the program without a college degree triple their earning potential. Aviation Maintenance Technology SkillBridge Program Embry-Riddle is collaborating with industry to address a shortage of skilled aviation maintenance technicians. This skills gap has the potential to jeopardize safety, raise maintenance costs and delay departures. As an authorized organization to the U.S. Department of Defense SkillBridge Program, we are helping separating service members, veterans and military spouses transition to civilian careers in aviation maintenance. Graduates of this new nine-week program are guaranteed interviews with leading aerospace hiring partners.
