2: At Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, what we do -- and do best -- is teach the science, practice, and business of the world of aviation and aerospace. Since it was founded just 22 years after the Wright brothers' first flight, the University and its graduates have built an enviable record of achievement in every aspect of aviation and aerospace. The curriculum at Embry-Riddle covers the operation, engineering, research, manufacturing, marketing, and management of modern aircraft and the systems that support them.
3: The University engages in extensive research and consulting that address the unique needs of aviation, aerospace, and related industries. Residential campuses in Daytona Beach, Florida, and Prescott, Arizona, provide education in a traditional setting, while Embry-Riddle Worldwide provides instruction through more than 150 locations in the United States, Europe, Canada, and the Middle East, and through online learning. All academic programs at Embry-Riddle are approved for veterans' educational benefits and are accompanied by personalized academic advisement.
5: The University of South Carolina is home to more than 200 years of history and tradition, rising from a single building in 1805 on what would become the heart of the campus, the Horseshoe. The 11 buildings that now make up the Horseshoe frame a lush lawn that is an irresistible gathering place. The university is expanding west toward the Congaree River in support of its research initiatives in nanotechnology, health sciences, Future Fuels, the environment and information technologies. This innovation district, Innovista, includes a master plan for policy, physical infrastructure and support elements for job creation and growth in the knowledge economy. Innovista promises to be an economic catalyst that will raise the state’s per-capita income and quality of life by attracting knowledge-based businesses and high-paying jobs to an urban research university campus within a community that has a high livability appeal.
