Many Universities are expanding their curriculum to include a Drone Program or Unmanned Aerial Systems fields of study. Purdue & Indiana State University are amongst these Universities. As a matter of fact, Indiana State University was the first University in the Midwest to offer a Drone Program.
During a recent MeetUp, students of a local Indiana High School experienced the DJI Mavic Air, Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2. They also learned about the expanding drone industry. Representatives from the Purdue Foundry & Indiana States faculty were on Site.
“We’re trying to connect those resources. We’ve got great academic resources here ISU, IU, Purdue. Unfortunately, a lot of that engineering, scientific talent, leaves the state. So we want to create more opportunity here.” – Purdue Foundry Director Jason Salstrom
“Indiana realizes that there is a commercial opportunity out there. Commercial applications for unmanned systems is about to take off.” – Mike Collins
