Unmanned Aerial Systems Seminar

Credit Hours: 2

This is a seminar course designed to provide students with a foundational understanding of the legal considerations relevant to the development, manufacture, and use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (“UAS”). The Federal Aviation Administration regulates the use of UAS in the National Airspace System and the course will explore both regulations of general applicability and those specifically applicable to UAS. The course will explore assorted civil and criminal issues based on the interests and background of students in the class. These areas could include insurance, cyber security, export regulations, and international laws governing military use of UAS. The grade will be based on a research paper on a topic selected by the student and approved by the instructor.
