Undergraduate Certificate in Unmanned Vehicle Systems (Electrical Engineering)

The Certificate in Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS), offered through the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE), will educate undergraduate students in the knowledge and skills required for design, development and operation of UVS including Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Unmanned Ground Systems (UGS), and Unmanned Maritime Systems (UMS). The certificate program will emphasize common aspects of UVS such as sensors, actuators, communications, and more importantly, decision-making capabilities (autonomy), while also covering development of domain-specific mobile platforms such as airplane and rotorcraft. This program aims at the dual goal of providing the UVS industry with a knowledgeable, locally available workforce and developing career opportunities for its participants. To this end, the Certificate in UVS will be awarded concurrently with the BSEE degree.
