UNR has started a new minor in Unmanned Aerial Systems.
Manos Maragakis is UNR’s Dean of Engineering.
"Because of the preparations that we have been going through over the past two years we are ready," said Maragakis. "We don’t have any preparations to do, we are ready to put it to work right now.”
But Maragakis warns that to stay on the leading edge of technology and demand, Nevada leaders must enhance science and math education in grades K through 12.
The university is planning summer camps dedicated to unmanned aerial systems. It also will demonstrate applications for the systems at a downtown children’s museum.
