North Dakota State College of Science today announced it is teaming up with the Unmanned Applications Institute (UAI), Grand Forks, N.D., to offer unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) training and education. Geospacial remote sensing, Intro to Intelligence, as well as other professional or accredited courses may be among the classes offered at NDSCS. UAI specializes in the unmanned aircraft system (UAS) business with programing and expertise to assist North Dakota and the upper Great Plains in providing education and training for this new and fast growing industry.
"We are privileged to be a part of the UAV initiative to offer the new and innovative technology in this field," said Dr. John Richman, NDSCS president. NDSCS will begin offering classes as early as this fall on its Wahpeton campus. The College will also be home to a small UAV for student learning.
"It is great to see NDSCS back in the aviation industry," said UAI founder Tom.K.Kenville. "The UAV industry is growing fast and the commercial applications are endless from agricultural to emergency management. "UAVs are all about payloads and technology and NDSCS is going to be a leader in supplying a highly trained workforce for this growing industry," commented Kenville.
UAI International is an industry expert in the UAV business with intentions of doing industry driven testing, research, training and program management for every area of the UAV industry.
