Bachelor of Science in
Unmanned Systems Applications

One of the first degrees of its kind, the Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Systems Applications (BSUSA) prepares students for administration, operations and development work in the emerging unmanned systems field. As one of the first degree programs to focus on this burgeoning field, the Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Systems Applications (BSUSA) focuses on the growth, innovative development, and effective use of unmanned system technology across the respective domains (air, space, ground, and maritime). 

Through extremely focused and continually updated curriculum, students will learn how unmanned systems are utilized on land, in water, in the air and in space today — and that we’ve only just begun to explore their full potential.

Courses will examine major industry challenges such as interoperability, autonomy, airspace integration, communications, education and training, propulsion and power, teaming, and regulation.

Students will customize the BSUSA to fit their desired career path by selecting from three learning tracks: Administration, Operations, or Development. While each specialization focuses on a different aspect of the unmanned systems industry, all will position you to play a prominent role in the field as it continues to grow.

The Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Systems Applications (BSUSA) at Embry-Riddle Worldwide offers graduates career opportunities that go far beyond engineering and development. Companies also need skilled administrators, operators, managers and business professionals.

Students will customize the BSUSA to fit their desired career path by selecting from three learning tracks: Administration, Operations, or Development. While each specialization focuses on a different aspect of the unmanned systems industry, all will position graduates to play a prominent role in the field as it continues to grow.

Administration Track:  The emphasis is on managerial aspects of unmanned systems applications, ranging from business considerations, and legal and regulatory requirements to environmental compliance, safety management, or contracting and procurement.

Operations Track: This area focuses on individual mission support such as mission planning, payload selection, or sensor data treatment.

Development Track: This area bridges the gap between engineering aspects and operational requirements. The focus is on task-oriented implementation, combination, and/or (re)design of existing technologies to suit new applications, including software adaptation to match requirements.

BSUSA graduates will be prepared to help develop and apply the advanced technologies necessary to support the growing and dynamic needs of the industry. They will also be qualified to help guide the policies and regulations that govern this emerging field.
