Minnesota-based Sensurion Aerospace and the University of North Dakota (UND) have created a new unmanned aerial systems (UAS) pipeline program to provide career-building opportunities for graduates of UND's John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences.
In addition to providing UND graduates with employment opportunities at Sensurion, the program establishes a framework for broader collaborative efforts in the UAS arena, says Sensurion.
A joint working group comprising the Sensurion Aerospace training department and UND Aerospace will collaborate on future curriculum recommendations; stay abreast of regulatory issues; and partner on new education, training and internship programs.
‘We are thrilled to have access to top graduates from the country's preeminent aerospace training program,’ says Captain Joe Burns, CEO of Sensurion. ‘Our goal is to train and develop employees, retain top talent, and grow future leaders.’
Sensurion specializes in UAS technologies and developed and manufactures one of the first Federal Aviation Administration-certified small UAS, the MAGPIE MP-1.
