Across the U.S. and around the world, small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS; under 55 lbs.) are rapidly transforming businesses and industries. UAV’s, or drones, are projected to be a $21 billion industry by 2022. UAV’s are already being implemented in agriculture, infrastructure, package delivery, EMS, law enforcement, wind turbine blade inspections, utility substation and power line inspections, wildlife monitoring and reporting, mining, pipeline inspection, and real estate to name just a few. Almost every industry in the next few years will be utilizing UAVs in some capacity. Th e CCCC sUAS program provides training for students who want to become involved in an industry in its infancy. CCCC offers a one-year certificate and a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree program in sUAS.
