OSU Sees High Demand for UAS


Two years ago an engineering degree virtually guaranteed graduates a job offer in the energy industry, but with depressed commodity pricing those same companies are now shedding jobs, including engineers.

Dr. Jamey Jacob, Oklahoma State University mechanical and aerospace engineering professor and director at the Unmanned Systems Research Institute, reports, however that OSU engineering graduates are finding plenty of employment opportunities – particularly in the aerospace and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) sectors.

Traditional aerospace companies such as Boeing, Northrop Grumman and General Atomics are hiring, plus UAS continues to expand across other sectors like agriculture, utilities and even oil and gas.
