The aviation industry is on the edge of a major shift. Current economic impact studies predict that the industry for remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) will gain over $82 billion over the next ten years in the US alone. This growth is expected to create over 100,000 new jobs in the field of unmanned aircraft.

Currently, RPAs (also commonly referred to as drones or UAVs) are being used every day throughout the world. While most of these operations are currently military, the applications for this technology are rapidly expanding in the private sector.

At LETU, our goal is for our remotely piloted aircraft systems graduates to become effective and exemplary aviation professionals who will become leaders in this new and rapidly expanding industry. We also seek to instill graduates with a sense of Christian vocation and commitment to serving God through their careers. We combine technical expertise with a Christian perspective on the use of technology.
