Just Don’t Call It A Drone. I love the title of this New York Times article which highlights existing and growing options for students interested in an unmanned aerial career.
Three major universities currently offer majors in unmanned aerial systems, and many others offer courses.

Moreover, experts predict that unmanned vehicles will offer better job prospects than the airlines. New FAA regulations allowing operations of UAS in national airspace will open up currently untapped career opportunities.
