This Introduction to Unmanned Aerial Systems course is designed to engage hands-on learners to explore operations associated with Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). The UAS Industry is on the verge of rapid growth and innovation as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) provides the necessary regulatory oversight for these systems. Students who participate in the class can expect to obtain the necessary foundation to explore real-world opportunities associated with UAS. Additionally, an inquiry-based learning environment will engage students to challenge and explore their personal creativity and intrigue within this domain. Students will be expected to participate in performance-based assessments demonstrating their individual and small group UAS skills. Only students who possess basic R/C flying skills should consider this class.
