Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Daytona Beach campus will launch a B.S. in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Science degree program in the Fall 2011 semester.
Open to U.S. citizens who have a basic background in math and physics, this new program will help meet the growing demand for skilled UAS pilots and operators, according to university officials.
The B.S. in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Science will focus on the operations aspect of UAS, preparing students for such roles as pilot, observer, sensor operator, or operations administrator.
The program offers two tracks – the pilot track is for students who are interested in flight operations from the pilot’s perspective, while the non-pilot track is for students seeking a career as a sensor operator or a support position. Both tracks will cover basic engineering topics, hazardous and long-duration operations, international airspace, and regulatory restrictions in the United States.
