Also, there are some interesting things happening in Massachusetts’ colleges and universities…

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AeroAstro undergraduate program will enable you to earn an aerospace engineering, and prepare you for entry-level positions in aerospace and related engineering fields. AeroAstro students have built UAVs for the U.S. Air Force.

Also, a newly FAA-designated unmanned aircraft test site in Massachusetts will offer MIT classes and research groups government-sanctioned airspace only an hour and a half from campus, at Cape Cod.

MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory is researching the integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) into civil airspace, which requires new methods of ensuring collision avoidance.

Boston University and MIT both have Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Teams. These are student run groups with the goal of teaching its members the necessary hands-on engineering skills involved in building aerial vehicle and/or robotic systems.

If any drone-specific degree  programs become available in Massachusetts, we’ll let you know. Until then, your best bet may be in the nearby states of New York or Pennsylvania.
