About the course
If you have the will to be a part of a new and growing field that can prove invaluable to law enforcement, agriculture, videography, surveying and many other areas, Southeast Missouri State University’s Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) can help get you there. Many professionals use UAS, or “drones,” to protect life by using this technology in applications that would normally put human lives at risk. There are already many applications for UAS and the list continues to grow! Southeast is currently the only university in Missouri offering a bachelor’s degree in unmanned aircraft systems.

Students learn the fascinating fundamentals of these machines, including maintenance, customization, acquisition, and commercial use. Rather than building drones from the ground up, students take advantage of existing products and resources to adapt drones to meet specific needs. Courses include programming, electrical and electronic systems, mechanical operations, flight, drone design, sensing systems, mission planning, regulations, and safety.
