Unmanned Aircraft Systems Science
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems Science degree gives graduates the expertise they need for employment as operators, observers, sensor operators, and operations administrators of unmanned aircraft systems. The coursework covers several UAS applications areas, including hazardous operations, surveillance and data collection, secure operations, long duration operations, highly repetitive operations, and autonomous operations. Students also learn about the engineering aspects of these aircraft systems and the regulations governing their operation.
The Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Science degree is housed in the Department of Aeronautical Science in the College of Aviation.
Typical First Year
A typical first year will include general education courses like Communication Theory and Skills, Aeronautical Science core courses, and other courses related to Human Factors, Math, and Science.
Due to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) imposed by the United States State Department, this degree will only be open to U.S. citizens. The Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Aircraft Systems may be attained in eight semesters. To earn the degree, successful completion of 122 credit hours is required. Students entering this program should have a basic background in math and physics. Students will select one of two specialty tracks, Pilot Track or the Non-Pilot Track.
Degree Plus Maintenance Expertise In High Demand
Every commercial, private, or military aircraft requires the careful attention of professional aviation maintenance specialists. Without the devotion of professional aviation maintenance experts, the air travel system could not exist. The demand for degreed aircraft maintenance specialists in the aviation/aerospace world has never been greater than it is today. The Aviation Maintenance Science program (AMS) at Embry-Riddle produces these aviation professionals, the best in the world.
If you choose to earn Embry-Riddle's degree in Aviation Maintenance Science, your expertise will be sought after by the aviation and aerospace industry.
ERAU is proud to offer the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program to those who qualify.
