LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
The FAA has picked Nevada as one of six unmanned aerial systems (UAS) testing sites.
UNLV College of Engineering's Dean Dr. Rama Venkat said the university's professors and students will help lead the way in research, testing and development.
"We first of all need to integrate them into the air space. We need policies, procedures, regulations. We need to figure out who can do it, is it safe, will people's privacy be violated," Venkat said.
In spring of 2015 a continuing education certificate will be available for those seeking a career change.
