Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems AAS

Carroll’s Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Associate Degree (sUAS AAS) provides students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to operate and maintain small unmanned aircraft systems (drones) within National Airspace System guidelines. As part of this program, students prepare to earn the FAA Remote Pilot in Command (Part 107) Certificate and USI sUAS Safety Certification*. Carroll’s course work focuses on safe sUAS operation for aerial video production, the collection and analysis of aerial and geospatial data, as well as piloting, maintenance, and flight requirements. Students also learn the software and applications used to manipulate photos, video, and data captured by the drones. Students who complete Carroll’s Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) AAS degree are well prepared to commercially fly small unmanned aircraft systems. (*Certifications are not guaranteed)
