Welcome to the DAV 735 Wiki!


The Ph.D. in Aviation degree at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University allows students to pursue interests in aviation in a diverse, intellectually versatile, and multidisciplinary environment and to effect a global impact on the aviation discipline and industry. The program has been designed with the intent of preparing students with the cognitive and research skills necessary to solve acute problems facing the field of aviation and to advance the discipline.

DAV 735: Current Practices and Future Trends in Aviation is a course within the Operations cognate for the Ph.D. in Aviation degree. This course has been designed to develop the student's understanding of the current state of the global aerospace industry and its probable future evolutions. Students identify potential applied research studies and other opportunities that may result in significant improvements in short-term and long-term aviation-related advances. Sample activities include identifying national governments’ roles in defining the future of aviation; appraising and projecting probable impacts that the global industry will experience as technologies advance and markets emerge and evolve; examining industry involvement in technological innovations, the political decision-making process, and the role that the academic community has in supporting the modernization of the global airspace system.

This Ph.D. in Aviation wiki is a collaboration activity in which students work together to research, analyze, and develop strategies for the future of aviation. This wiki focuses on four domains--Academia, Industry, Government, Global concerns, and is built in two separate builds (Build 1 and Build 2). The web pages for each domain may be accessed from the navigation menu on the left.
