Unmanned Aerial Systems Certificate

The Certificate in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) is designed to give the student a substantial background in the fields of geographic information systems, remote sensing and the use of small unmanned aerial systems for environmental monitoring. Students completing the program will be familiar with the terminology, techniques and theory of UAS operation as well as the applicable regulations relating to UAS use in commercial/research roles. Hands-on experience is a major feature of the courses. The program complements majors in disciplines other than geography while increasing the student’s preparation for the job market.

May be taken at graduate and undergraduate levels. The student must earn a grade point average of at least 3.00 in the courses taken for the certificate. Up to 3 credits can be transferred from another institution.
