Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) degree program trains individuals to work as professional UAS pilots in the exciting industry of aerial robotics or drones. COCC partnered with a worldwide leader in UAS technology, to provide state of the art simulator training and student support. Students learn to operate and maintain UAS platforms, to include unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), ground control stations, and ground support equipment. Additional studies include launch, flight and recovery procedures, flight planning, mission briefings, operational integration, sensor management, GIS and CIS.
