PRLog - July 4, 2012 - LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. -- Unmanned Vehicle University started classes for Masters and Doctorate Degrees in Unmanned Systems Engineering. This is the first course of its kind, UVU Executive Director and President Dr (Col Ret) Jerry LeMieux said. The University offers a curriculum to prepare individuals for a career in civil and commercial applications for unmanned systems. We have prepared for this day for over a year and our doors are open to the World so that anyone can gain the technical knowledge behind unmanned systems. We currently have students from around the World. We have campuses in Africa, Australia, India, Italy, Middle East, Spain, South America, UK and USA. We have faculty members with an average of over 25 years of experience with unmanned systems
Unmanned systems engineers are critical to the positions of technical management and development of complex unmanned systems. These professionals are responsible for planning, coordinating, and budgeting group efforts that translate operational needs into technology requirements. They use their skills to determine whether a system will meet cost, schedule, and performance goals. Systems engineers perform a central role in realizing an unmanned systems success; they are in great demand by industry and government.
Systems engineering applies to everything from a large unmanned system to computer hardware and software. It’s a big-picture view that considers every aspect of a project, from costs and environmental impact, to time lines and life expectancy of equipment. Because it encompasses many disciplines, it can help engineers from diverse fields better understand how to solve problems. This interdisciplinary degree program covers modeling, simulation, design, architecture, integration, and testing of complex unmanned systems and processes. It also supplies students with underlying theoretical knowledge and practical experience applicable to unmanned systems. An unmanned systems engineering degree provides expert knowledge so that graduates can apply for employment in engineering, design, development, integration and test of unmanned air, ground and sea systems. Graduates from our online degree programs will have opportunities as chief engineers, engineering managers, and project managers.
All courses are taught online. Lectures and assignments are posted and users interact on the University website. Web conferences are held to improve the learning experience.
Now that classes have started, students can enroll at any time. Visit the University website at www.uxvuniversity.com for more information.
