Are you looking for a career that pays more than a basic salary and provides considerable security? Then an Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) degree may be the perfect choice for you. Embry-Riddle's Bachelor of Science degree in Unmanned Aircraft Systems equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to seek employment in a wide variety of fields related to UAS. Northwestern Michigan College has created a unique training center that specializes in UAS, where you can earn a degree, complete a certification program, or simply get specialized training. At UND Aerospace, you'll work with faculty from the School of Aviation and Transportation Technology who have years of experience in industry or research.
This is the first four-year UAS operating program to receive Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI) accreditation. Starting a career in aviation with a focus on unmanned aerial systems is easier than most expect. UAS have gone from being strictly military to a wide variety of commercial and life-saving applications. As an unmanned aircraft systems specialist, you'll understand the concepts needed to be a UAS professional, including electronics, mechanical design, and programming.
UND is one of the first universities to enter into a long-term relationship with the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) and be part of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Collegiate Training Initiative (CTI-UAS) program. The flights take place regularly in which UND flight students fly together with Unmanned Aircraft in the National Airspace System. Areas of concentration include unmanned aerial systems, aviation safety, flight operations, management, aviation maintenance management, aviation operations management, or safety. With this unique UND program, you will gain the drone expertise to run and manage applications in the military, firefighting, disaster assistance, law enforcement, surveillance, aerial photography, transportation, and future uses of this rapidly evolving area.
The Concentration in Unmanned Aerial System combines elements of operations and a strong aviation base and is designed for those who want to work as sensor operators, technicians, mission planners, communication and security personnel. The Unmanned Aircraft Systems specialization prepares students for fundamentals, including maintenance, customization, procurement, and commercial use. This course is designed to provide students with a broad understanding of the environment of unmanned aircraft (UAS) systems. In the Unmanned Aircraft Systems program, you'll be prepared for a wide range of fields ranging from agriculture and delivery services to telecommunications and first responder.
Unmanned Aircraft Systems graduates work in a wide variety of fields far surpassing their current primary use in military applications.
