Through coursework tailored to combine computer sciences, electronic engineeringand mechanical engineering with unmanned systems, students in this Engineering Technology - Unmanned Aircraft Systems program from Kansas State University willexplore the intricacies of UAS subsystems and components, such as software design,
computer networking, firmware and hardware, sensors and actuators, and camera systems and other payloads.
Students will be expected to execute critical thinking, problem solving research skills while engaging in classes about electronic circuits, communication systems, control systems, machine design, manufacturing technology, materials technology and fundamentals of UAS operations.
Within the first three years of integration into the National Airspace Systems, according to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, more than 70,000 jobs in the UAS industry will be created in the United State, with an economic impact of more than $136 billion.
No longer are employers in this exponentially growing field only looking for pilots or operators; graduates with the engineering technology with a UAS option degree will provide the industry with the source it needs in developing and implementing technologies for interoperability, autonomy, propulsion and power, and communication.
Careers, found in both the commercial and defense applications of UAS, are already available in a variety of areas such as wildfire mapping, agriculture monitoring, disaster management, law enforcement, weather monitoring, oil and gas exploration and film making.
