Carleton Offering UAV/Drone Professional Short Course With NAV CANADA

Five-Day Course To Be Conducted June 20-24

Carleton University’s Faculty of Engineering and Design and NAV CANADA have teamed up to offer a joint Professional Short Course on uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones. The five-day course will be delivered at the NAV CENTRE facility in Cornwall, Ont., from June 20-24, 2016.

A broad assortment of topics pertaining to both fixed wing and rotary UAVs will be covered, including in-depth analysis of flight principles, functionality, application, detection, tracking and more. Potential opportunities and risks related to drone use will also be discussed, along with current and pending policy and regulations.
 
“The use of UAVs is increasing exponentially worldwide as people explore opportunities in a variety of different fields,” says Garry Brown, director of International Training Programs and Delivery for NAV CANADA. “This course is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of issues from flight principles and propulsion systems to safety and government regulation concerns.”
 
Course instructors will include members of Carleton’s Faculty of Engineering and Design, with additional expertise provided by NAV CANADA. Course participants will be presented with a Carleton University and NAV CANADA joint attendance certificate upon completion.

An enrolment fee of $2,000 per participant (plus applicable taxes) will be collected by NAV CANADA, which helps covers the academic and ancillary costs of the course, including instructors, accommodation and meals, classroom space and use of simulators, simulator support resources and supplies.

This course is an example of the growing partnership between Carleton and NAV CANADA. In late 2015, an agreement was signed to work towards establishing an Aerospace Centre of Excellence in Cornwall that would integrate the expertise of NAV CANADA, the country’s air navigation services provider, and Carleton, home of Canada’s first Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering program.
