Welcome to the UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) Page
Troy University became the first university in Alabama to offer a
program in unmanned aerial systems when the new minor launched in the
fall of 2014. The minor is part of the Bachelor of Applied
Science in Resource Management and Technology and falls under the
auspices of the College of Arts and Sciences' Department of Chemistry
Aside from military implications, the commercial side of UAS
operations is part of an $80 billion industry worldwide – and industry
that is expected to create more than 100,000 new jobs in coming years.
Unmanned aerial systems have application in agriculture, public safety,
infrastructure, environmental and weather conditions, commercial goods
delivery and other sectors.
