About the Program

Drones, or unmanned aircraft, will be soon be part of everyday life. Companies who adopt the technology will need experts to help them navigate flight paths as well as rules and regulations. A major in unmanned aerial systems (UAS) will equip you to be a leader in this new career field. In fact, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International believes 70,000 new jobs will be created in the three years after unmanned aircraft are integrated into the U.S. airspace system.
