2020 unit offering information will be available in September 2019
Introduces students to the use of aerial drones in marine and environmental science, engineering, forestry, agriculture, visual arts and other applications. Students will obtain hands on experience piloting drones, planning operations and analysing associated data, and also learn about the role rapidly advancing drone technology will play in shaping our future.
Use of drones in marine and environmental science, engineering, forestry, agriculture, visual arts and other applications
Basic principles of safe drone flight in commercial applications and governing legislation
Practical experience flying drones safely and planning operations to comply with relevant Southern Cross University policy and procedures
Cutting-edge drone sensors (e.g. thermal, multispectral and Lidar imagery).
Building 3D models and video show reels, as well as analysing quantitative data from drone footage.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
