Drones Are Coming to New York City as Part of a Three-Day Career Seminar!

Attendees can earn 4 credits towards a UVU undergraduate or graduate degree program as well as a free DJI drone

PHOENIX---Anyone interested in learning everything they need to know to start a career as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) pilot should make a point to attend a special three-day seminar on "The Fundamentals of UAVs" being hosted by Unmanned Vehicle University (www.uxuuniversity.com) from March 19 through March 21 in New York City at the The Regus Business Center located at 340 Madison Avenue (19th Floor). Unmanned Vehicle University, based in Phoenix, Arizona, is the only university in the world that is licensed to offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Unmanned Systems Engineering.


The first-of-its-kind seminar is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive introduction unmanned aerial vehicles and the many high paying career opportunities this rapidly growing field is likely to create over the next ten years. "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, have already revolutionized the way our military conducts field operations," Unmanned Vehicle University Provost John Minor said today.

"Now, they're revolutionizing the way that Americans live and work every day," Minor asserted. "The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is working hard to establish the guidelines under which drones can be used in commercial applications as diverse as agriculture, construction, real estate, security, news gathering, and media production, but the one thing they have already made very clear is that properly certified training and education is mandatory. With the imminent commercialization of unmanned aerial vehicles now at hand, we will be hosting on a series of three-day seminars around the country to show how individuals can get in on the ground floor of this exciting new industry."

For $1,999, participants will receive a comprehensive introduction to one of the fastest growing career opportunities in the world. According to Minor, UAVs are predicted to create 70,000 high paying careers over the next several years at salaries that range from $90,000 to more than $200,000. "Our three-day seminar is optimal for people looking to increase their UAV employment opportunities, start their own UAV business, or begin a career as a UAV Pilot," Minor said. "Plus, the seminar counts as four credits towards a university undergraduate or graduate degree program."

In addition, participants will receive free DJI drone upon completion of the three-day seminar. For more information on registration, visit http://www.uxvuniversity.com/.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
