In the Aeronautical Technology - Unmanned Aircraft Systems program from Kansas State University , students log flight hours by piloting a diverse fleet of unmanned aircraft through our structured multirotor and fixed-wing training courses.
After completion, students act as instructors in entry-level flight classes
As the unmanned aircraft systems, more commonly known as drones, industry continues to break new ground, Kansas State Polytechnic is at the forefront of this revolution.
The University understands the importance of providing students with research opportunities, cutting edge technology and equipment, and an exclusive education.
This bachelor degree option of study prepares students for careers in the field of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or remotely piloted aircraft. This is a rapidly growing area of aviation and students will be prepared to safely deploy UAS vehicles in response to emerging challenges and opportunities.
Coursework includes foundational courses in aviation flight and maintenance necessary for UAS operation and specific courses designed to enable commercially available payload to platform integration and to enable students to think critically in a rapidly developing technical field. Students will be prepared for technical and/or entry-level managerial positions and will be required to successfully defend a portfolio of accumulated learning prior to graduation.
