Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Technology and Operations (Turkish)
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is a type of flying vehicle that does not physically contain humans. The most important and indispensable component of UAVs is a communication system between a ground-based controller and the aircraft. It is a kind of aircraft that does not have a pilot or passenger, carries only the equipment suitable for the purpose (video camera, camera, GNSS, laser scanning device, etc.), can perform its mission remotely and/or automatically. Military, civilian (hobby and commercial) and professional use of UAVs for scientific purposes is increasing rapidly in our country and all over the world, therefore, it is considered that this issue will become more of an agenda in the coming years. It is a two-year training program in order to ensure that the qualified manpower needed in suitable positions such as design, production, maintenance, operation and pilotage of unmanned aerial vehicle technology is trained in accordance with the quality and service philosophy that will meet the expectations of the age. Graduates are researchers in companies engaged in research and development on unmanned aerial vehicle technologies; intermediate staff in companies producing platforms and components; have the qualifications to work as an operator or pilot in companies that perform flight operations. The training received by the graduates of the program will enable them to learn the dynamics of the unmanned aerial vehicle industry and to position themselves in this business line with the growth to be experienced in the sector in the coming years.
