Carroll University's Aviation Science and Unmanned Aircraft Systems minor provides hands-on, interactive learning that will introduce you to UAS technology while helping you develop new skills and building your academic resume. The 16-credit UAS minor is perfect for those curious about this emerging field or anyone wanting to incorporate unmanned aircraft, also known as drones, into their career objectives. Industries such as aviation, precision agriculture, surveying and mapping, infrastructure inspection, wildlife management, pipeline or power line patrol and emergency management, among others, would truly benefit from a background in UAS. Courses in the UAS minor cover a variety of topics and include lab time and flight simulations.
Upon graduation, an Aviation Science and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Minor will:
- Be able to understand and Demonstrate safe operations of unmanned aircraft systems.
- Be able to understand and Analyze acquired drone data using sensor payloads.
- Demonstrate competency of Python coding.
- Demonstrate the process of drone design and flight.
- Demonstrate and analyze the process of drone detection and identification using counter drone systems.
