Master’s Degree with two approaches, 1. Unmanned Aircraft Systems Engineering (led by the University of Vigo); 2. Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operation (led by the University of Santiago de Compostela).
Unique Master’s Degree in the Galician University System and unparalleled to any other degree in the Northwest of Spain, so its open to potential students from areas like Asturias, Castilla y León and the North of Portugal. The uses of the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the existing processes in the different activity sectors like agriculture, environment, aquatic environments, safety and emergencies, civil work, industrial inspection and maintenance, etc., is enabling new business model in this sector growing globally, and which, accordingly to the Ministry of Public Work and Transportation strategy plan for the sector, will continue growing, until reach in 2035 a Spanish professional fleet of 51,400 UAS. Each of these identified activity sectors have different needs and therefore need different UAS based solutions, so the UAS can contribute to these sectors in operations like crops monitoring, pesticides drifts, forestry management, aquatic environments management, supervision, geospatial data provision for risk measurement, works monitoring, infrastructure inspection, etc.
