AUS drone academy featured on CNN
Courses offered at American University of Sharjah’s (AUS) drone academy were featured on CNN recently as part of a news segment on the use of drones and drone technology in the UAE. The CNN report can be viewed here.
AUS launched the first university-based drone academy in the United Arab Emirates, in conjunction with Exponent Technology Services LLC (ETS), earlier this year. The academy also has an active R&D drone laboratory which serves as a test-bed for innovative drone-based research projects.
The AUS-Exponent Certificate for drone pilot training offered at the academy is recognized by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and anyone with a certificate from the academy can apply for a corresponding category permits on the hobbyist or commercial level.
