The unmanned aerial systems program at the university will focus on agricultural applications of drone technology.

The unmanned aerial systems program will offer five different courses where drones will be used for instruction. The curriculum for the program was developed in conjunction with mechanical and aerospace engineering faculty at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.

Kuldeep Rawat, chair of the department of technology chair and director of the aviation science program at the university, stated that “the development of these courses is not only significant for ECSU students, but our relationship with state institutions who are interested in developing similar programs or use of these aircraft in their programs.”
