Why minor in unmanned aircraft system operations?
Our Grand Forks campus has been called "the Silicon Valley of unmanned aircraft systems" by the New York Times. UND students are given the opportunity to interact with small and large UAS companies such as Northrop Grumman, General Atomics, and Customs Border Protection. Flights are conducted regularly where UND flight students are jointly flying next to Unmanned Aircraft in the National Airspace System.
Students who are not majoring in Aviation or who are not already obtaining a four year degree in UAS operations have the unique opportunity to obtain a Minor in UAS Operations. This UAS minor takes a multi-disciplinary approach to education recognizing the diverse use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in various fields.
Are you an engineeringing, accounting, computer science, or biology major? Obtain a UAS Minor and gain the necessary knowledge and skill to effectively and safely use Unmanned Aircraft Systems in your chosen profession.
