Unmanned Aircraft System Technology
Overview of the programme
This practical orientated MSc in Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Technology has been specifically designed for professionals whose occupational fields would benefit from applications of UAS technology. During this course, you will be offered the opportunity to train for the CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) certificate for Small Unmanned Aircraft. You will also construct a drone and gain an in-depth understanding of payload sensor technology. This course will help to build your confidence as a drone operator, allowing you to safely undertake simulated and actual UAS missions in the knowledge that you have complied with all of the relevant statutory requirements.
The structural design and component architecture of UAS is also a rapidly evolving field of technology. Here at Wrexham Glyndwr University, we have the facilities and technical support staff necessary to realise the conceptual ideas that you may have. Our Advanced Composite Centre facility allows the manufacture and testing of high-performance UAS airframes, there are rapid prototyping and 5-axis CNC machining facilities, wind tunnels for aerodynamic testing and our electrical and electronic build and test laboratories are available for the production and testing of control, sensor and power supply circuitry.
