Unmanned Vehicle University proudly touts itself as the first university to be licensed to grant master’s and doctoral degrees in Unmanned Systems Engineering using curriculum delivered totally online, and remains one of very few doctorate-level degrees available in UAS in any form. UVU emphasizes the industry experience of its instructor staff-ranging from military to commercial, adding up to a combined 500 years of UAV operations’ experience to draw from-offering students more real-world knowledge than most other institutions of any size. Graduates from these programs will be well positioned to apply for positions as chief engineers, researchers, systems engineers, and engineering managers in the UAV field. In addition to its graduate-level programs, UVU also offers more traditional short-term training courses focusing on flight training and FAA Part 107 test prep as well as technical-certification programs for UAS Project Management.
