Ohio Colleges Create Partnership Focused on UAS

Sinclair College and Miami University, both based in southwest Ohio, have signed a partnership that will leverage the resources of both institutions in the growing unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) industry.

The agreement provides a framework for Sinclair and Miami to build a partnership focused on aerospace and related technologies, including UAS – an emerging market being championed by the state as a keystone technology for economic development, according to Sinclair.

Some components of the agreement include creating a pathway for Miami students to take UAS technical offerings through Sinclair's National UAS Training and Certification Center and the push for approved airspace access at the Miami University Airport and additional sites of mutual interest.

Sinclair, which holds a Federal Aviation Administration commercial exemption, says it is in the process of adding to the National UAS Training and Certification Center at its Dayton campus – following a $5 million investment that is being used to construct an indoor flying pavilion, new labs for testing, and expanded integration of advanced manufacturing capabilities through CNC machinery and 3D printing.
