“Through its work with unmanned aerial systems (UAS) test sites and with the emergence of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-authorized research initiatives, Development Counsellors International has put together a list of the top 10 universities offering degrees in UAS.

University of Cincinnati: UC doesn’t have a specific UAS degree program; however its aerospace engineering and engineering mechanics programs have been conducting research on UAS in disaster management operations, and the University of Cincinnati Research Institute is collaborating with local entrepreneurs to further develop concept vehicles based on student simulations. One such collaboration is with the Cincinnati-based company, AMP Electric Vehicles, which, with the help of UC, has developed a high-tech delivery system using drones with proprietary geolocation software and electric vehicles.”
