Unmanned Aircraft Systems

UNLV’s UAS minor program introduces students to basic knowledge of the field’s various components, preparing them for work in the UAS industry. The program’s core includes an introduction to UAS, UAS simulation training, and a class on privacy issues, taught by the William S. Boyd School of Law. The minor program provides students with knowledge about UAS-related technology through hands-on courses created specifically for the program. With Nevada’s FAA designation as one of seven regional sites for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) development, students who complete the minor will be uniquely prepared to meet the small unmanned aircraft systems certification standards of the FAA.
