The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Certificate program prepares students for careers in the rapidly growing area of unmanned aircraft systems, including piloting, mission planning, data collection and analysis, and other related skills. Students have the opportunity for flight training with multi-rotor and fixed wing unmanned aircraft systems. Through course work, simulation, and flight training, students may achieve the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) remote pilot operator certificate (FAA Part 107 licensing). Successful completion of this program enables students to take the FAA examination.
