Unmanned and Autonomous Systems, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Degree Programs

The Bachelor of Science in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems provides students with the necessary knowledge to become a professional in the field. The program provides a foundation in flight operations, mission planning, special sensors, weapons, surveillance and data collection, aeronautical technologies and ground control. Students design, construct, and fly an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Students can become certified Unmanned Aerial Systems Operators, and gain the knowledge and skills to support governmental and commercial employers. The program prepares students to pass the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 107 test to become a Commercial UAV Pilot and Sport Pilot. All students will complete a capstone in which they propose, design, build, test and deliver a computer-based system.

Student Outcomes

Upon graduation, graduates will be able to

  • Analyze the fundamentals of unmanned and autonomous systems, including the technological, social, environmental, and political aspects of the system to examine, compare, analyze and recommend conclusions.
  • Compare and contrast current unmanned and autonomous system issues, identify contributing factors, and formulate strategies to address or further investigate.
  • Evaluate and recommend the incorporation of new technologies, methods, processes, or concepts with current unmanned system applications, management practices, or operational policies.
  • Critically justify and validate unmanned and autonomous system design configurations to support safe, efficient, and effective operations in applicable domains (air, space, ground, and maritime), including assessing appropriateness of major elemental components, evaluating limitations and constraints, formulating theory of operation, and supporting the perceived need.
  • Effectively communicate concepts, designs, theories, and supporting material with others in the unmanned and autonomous systems field.
  • Investigate current unmanned systems problems, complete a thorough review of the issue, formulate hypotheses, collect and appropriately analyze data, interpret the findings and provide a report to others in the field.
  • Improve the field of unmanned and autonomous systems and provide solutions to unmanned and autonomous systems challenges
