Boeing will operate a new engineering facility within the Cici & Hyatt Brown Center for Aerospace Technology at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla. Initial plans for the location call for Boeing employees to perform engineering work for military aircraft programs and advanced technology capabilities.

Boeing plans to begin hiring for approximately 200 engineering jobs this year and forecasts nearly doubling that total over the next few years. Work is expected to span Boeing’s defense and government services portfolios, with a focus on engineering design, research, development and prototyping capabilities.

Boeing is also making a $100,000 investment in several Volusia County nonprofit organizations. The company will provide funding to support the Second Harvest Food Bank of Volusia County Schools Partnership Program, which offers a student-centered approach to increasing access to nutritious food for students facing hunger. Additional funding has been designated for local organizations supporting veterans and environmental programs in the area.Later this fall, Boeing will launch the DreamLearners Program in Volusia County Schools. The award-winning program offers students the opportunity to participate in hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs and learn about careers in aerospace.

The Center for Aerospace Technology is part of Embry-Riddle’s Research Park, where students are paired up to collaborate with established companies across aviation, aerospace, cybersecurity, commercial space and many other STEM-related fields.

Construction for the 65,000-square-foot facility, including a 40,000-square-foot hangar, began in 2022 and is scheduled to be completed this fall. Boeing Daytona Beach is expected to be operational by late fall.
