About This Program
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems minor introduces students to various types of unmanned aerial systems and their increasing role in today's society. Using a systems engineering perspective, students study roles and applications of unmanned aerial systems and apply their knowledge to the development of sensors, control, communications and flight operations. Students will also become an FAA certificated drone pilot.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
