Master's degree in Applications and Technologies for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones)

The master's degree in Applications and Technologies for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones), new for the 2017-2018 academic year, provides specialised training in the applications of drones, including technical aspects (the selection of platforms and instruments) and legal and economic aspects (applicable regulations and business opportunities). 

On this master's degree you will learn:
  • to devise new applications for drones;
  • to choose the most suitable platforms for drones depending on their application;

You will learn all of the above while working in a company or research group on a project that makes up 75% of the workload of the master's degree.
