A Premiere of Down to Earth: Project 4

Real Surveyors. Real Work. Really Good Data.

Wednesday, April 28 at 9am ET, 6pm ET or 9am CET

Get ready to go back to school with Down to Earth!

However, this is not your ordinary classroom. The drone surveyors of tomorrow are students today – and there’s a lot to learn at the Mohawk Valley Community Colleges’ Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems Program that features drone surveying equipment from Microdrones.

In these episodes of Down to Earth, we follow MVCC Professor Bill Judycki as he teaches his students both in the classroom and out in the field. See how students gain incredible hands-on experience flying drone surveying equipment, learning about the mechanics, workflow, and software capabilities.

Then watch as they put their education to the test and use the mdMapper1000DG from Microdrones to provide a local golf country club with an updated course map of the 200 acre project- all while dealing with winter weather and new technologies in these educational episodes of Down to Earth.

“Down to Earth” is a reality series that shows how real surveyors collect data and turn it into real deliverables, despite challenging terrain, rough weather, and hidden dangers.

This webinar will feature the first 3 episodes of Down to Earth: Higher Education, as Professor Judycki reviews his curriculum, discusses the partnership with Microdrones and examines the mission planning, data capture and analysis of the final deliverables from his students.

Join us Wednesday, April 28 at 9am ET, 6pm ET or 9am CET

In this presentation we cover:

  • Review the MVCC Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems AAS degree program
  • Learn how Microdrones became involved
  • Discuss how Professor Judycki implemented the program and made it successful
  • Highlight how the students are learning about drone surveying equipment from Microdrones and creating valuable deliverables for local businesses in their community

Find out how MVCC is giving new meaning to the term Higher Education with their RPAS Program and Microdrones.
