The University of North Dakota is offering the country's first Bachelor degree in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations.
Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations degree from the University of North Dakota is being offered because of the increasing demand for qualified pilots and sensor operators in the rapidly growing field of unmanned aircraft systems operations.
Among our assets:
The University of North Dakota has combined 40+ years of excellence in manned aviation education with unparalleled growth in effective Unmanned Aircraft Systems research to offer the nation's first four-year degree in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations.
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems degree is based upon the current Commercial Aviation degree, and includes courses in unmanned aircraft, the ground systems that support them, communications and control, and sensor system operations. And like every UND aviation program, significant emphasis is given to aviation safety, human factors, and crew resource
management unique to unmanned aircraft system operations.
UND's Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations degree promotes the sensitivity of, and an appreciation for, the complexities associated with the safe integration of unmanned aircraft into the current manned aviation environment.
The nation's first school to offer an undergraduate business degree combined with aviation education and professional training, we offer seven majors in two undergraduate degree programs. A master's program provides graduates with knowledge and skills to prepare them for careers in the aviation industry, aviation-related government jobs, and for further research and development in the field.
The University Advantage
It all takes place on the campus of a highly respected teaching and research-based university situated on a beautiful 550-acre wooded campus that is home to more than 13,000 students enrolled in nearly 200 fields of study.
