The master's degree in Applications and Technologies for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones), (master's degree website) 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 the following:
  • to devise new applications for drones;
  • to choose the most suitable platforms for drones depending on their application;
  • to integrate the equipment needed for a mission, such as sensors and cameras, into the platforms and to develop any other additional components needed for integration; and
