Courses in the Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Systems Applications from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will examine major challenges such as interoperability, autonomy and robotics, airspace integration, communications, education and training, propulsion and power, teaming and regulation.
Students can customize the program to fit their desired career path by selecting from three learning tracks: Administration, Operations or Development. While each specialization focuses on a different aspect of unmanned systems, all will position students to play a prominent role in the Unmanned Systems and Robotics industry as it continues to grow.
About Systems Engineering at the Worldwide & Online Campus
Once the domain of military and government agencies, small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS and sUAS) have entered the civilian and commercial sectors, with drones and autonomous systems transforming the world as we know it.
From robotic vehicles roaming our streets to drones soaring through our skies, leading technology companies, news outlets, sports franchises and commercial enterprises all over the world increasingly rely on unmanned systems for critical aspects of their operations.
The BSUSA at Embry-Riddle Worldwide offers graduates career opportunities that go far beyond engineering and development. Companies also need skilled administrators, operators, managers and business professionals.
Students will customize the program to fit their desired career path by selecting from three learning tracks:
The emphasis is on managerial aspects of unmanned systems applications, ranging from business considerations, and legal and regulatory requirements to environmental compliance, safety management or contracting and procurement.
This area focuses on individual mission support such as mission planning, payload selection or sensor data treatment.
This area bridges the gap between engineering aspects and operational requirements. The focus is on task-oriented implementation, combination and/or (re)design of existing technologies to suit new applications, including software adaptations.
BSUSA graduates will be prepared to help develop and apply the advanced technologies necessary to support the growing and dynamic needs of the unmanned systems industry. They will also be qualified to support the policies and regulations that govern this emerging field.
For students who choose to pursue their master’s degree, a 4+1 degree option is available.
