The Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) One Year Technical Certificate prepares students with the foundational knowledge and skills involving Unmanned Aerial System technology, regulations and laws required by industry, necessary tools needed to work as Unmanned Aerial System (pilot/operator, observers, and ancillary ground crew member) while applying an understanding of the operational and safety regulations governing the National Airspace System. Students will choose one of the three options to specialize in one area: Precision Agriculture, First Responder Applications, or Geospatial Information Systems (GIS). Per Federal Aviation Administration these are going to be some of the first certified commercial applications and will have a critical impact on the Unmanned Aerial Systems industry. Other promising UAS applications are in construction, energy, mining, film and television.
With the Unmanned Aerial Systems industry expected to commercialize in the near future, industry has identified three commercial Unmanned Aerial System major areas of focus. These three specific applications are Precision Agriculture, Geospatial Information Systems and First Responder applications. Current industry demand for personnel in remote sensing, precision agriculture, maintenance applications, and a need for ancillary crew members as well as pilot/operators have been identified.
