The College of Engineering is excited to announce a new, interdisciplinary minor program in unmanned autonomous systems to begin in January 2014.
Unmanned autonomous systems, or UAS, are the next big step in the fusion of mechanical systems, computing technologies, sensors and software to create intelligent systems capable of interacting with the complexities of the real world.
These mobile machines are capable of traveling by air, land or sea without a human crew on board, and potential applications range from humanitarian to ecological to military.
The emerging industry requires highly educated individuals who understand the fundamentals of UAS in terms of design, engineering, operation and data analysis. To this end, the objective of the interdisciplinary minor in UAS is to provide students with skills and experiences that will help them better apply the knowledge gained in their majors to specialized problems in the field of UAS.
