Drone Schools in Indiana

There is currently only one UAV college degree program that I know of in the state of Indiana, but it is a good one.

The Department of Aviation technology at Indiana State University (located in Terre Haute) offers both a Bachelors of Science in Unmanned Systems and a minor in Unmanned (Aerial) Systems. The bachelor’s program prepares students for entry and advancement within the unmanned vehicle industry. Courses includes both a 21-credit unmanned systems core with an additional 28 credits of aviation classes. The minor “includes an introduction to unmanned systems operations and a study of advanced unmanned aircraft theory. Additional areas of UAS modeling and control fundamentals, ground based systems, visual and electro-optical aspects of navigation, obstacle and terrain avoidance systems, modular on-board processing systems, and current applications are explored.”

Another drone training option is Spaceport Indiana’s UAV Training Program. They offer an accelerated, hands-on 6-month curriculum design to teach students about UAVs, sensors, mission planning and operation.

You might also want to consider the bordering states of Illinois, Michigan, or Ohio.
