Minor in Unmanned Aircraft Systems
This minor program provides engineering and computer science undergraduate students with in-depth knowledge and technical aspects of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The curriculum focuses on UAS applications in unmanned surveillance, data collection, and autonomous navigation. The curriculum consists of 9 credit hours of core courses plus 12 credit hours of specialized elective-tracks. The core courses includes i) UAS technologies, ii) UAS Privacy, and iii) UAS training and testing courses.
Students entering the UAS minor program must be majors in engineering or computer science. Students with a science or math major need to contact the program coordinator for guidance. Students must apply in the minor two semesters prior to graduation and need to be approved by the minor program coordinator.
