About

The Unmanned Aircraft System Technology programme offered by the Wrexham Glyndwr University is designed to equip practitioners of the future with the in-depth knowledge required to safely and legally design, manufacture and operate SUA (up to 20kg MTOM) here in the UK.

Overview

This is a practical, hands-on course in which students will get to build, fly and keep their very own drone. An engineering degree qualification is not necessary to enrol on this course. Scientists across all disciplines who wish to adapt drone technology to their field of study and people from any industry, employed or self-employed, are eligible and encouraged to join the course. For example in agriculture, drones can be used to assess crops and yields. 

This can be achieved by understanding the technologies behind the drone and then adapting it for a specific purpose. The Unmanned Aircraft System Technology programme offered by the Wrexham Glyndwr University is not so much about training people to become pilots, it’s about providing the skills to extract and process data in a whole range of subject areas.

Students will learn the legal and safety aspects of advanced drone operations and also plan missions and conduct actual operations in the field. Flying tuition will be provided by our Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) qualified staff using our drone simulator and also out on our dedicated flight-test field.  

Career

The course equips you with a thorough knowledge and skills in engineering at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. Graduates will be well placed to become subject specialists within the industry or to pursue research careers within academia.
