The Certificate in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Applications is designed to provide students with a basic background in the technologies and applications of unmanned aircraft systems that will prepare them to work in various fields related to unmanned aircraft. Candidates are required to complete 16 credit hours, including 10 hours of required courses and 6 hours chosen from a list of designated electives. All students admitted into the UAS certificate program must meet the undergraduate admission requirements for TAMU-CC and must satisfy all prerequisites for courses in the certificate program. Students working toward an undergraduate degree in engineering, computer science, or geospatial information science may obtain this certificate while completing their degrees, but this may require completing more credit hours than those required for the undergraduate degree. Transfer credit for some required courses may be considered, as may credit for previous experience. Students are expected to meet all other academic standards. Students must apply for the certificate and complete a Certificate Plan approved by the Director of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences or a designee.
