Huntington to Offer Drone Course

Huntington University will soon bring drones to the classroom. The university's digital media arts department will offer an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle drone training course this summer.

The course will be taught by instructor Nathan Hartman, who is also the digital media arts studio supervisor. Hartman received UAV certification from the Unmanned Aerial University last fall.

"We couldn’t be more excited to offer this class on campus," said Hartman. "Through simulator training and extensive discussions on the capabilities of drone technology, we plan to not only give class credit, but certify students in drone tech, giving them the edge they need on their resumes."

The two credit hour course will begin May 31 on the Huntington campus.
