The Master’s Degree in Operations and Unmanned Aircraft Systems Engineering is created as a high specialised degree for university students with two approaches, one focused in the unmanned aircraft systems engineering, led by the University of Vigo, and one focused in the unmanned aircraft systems operations, led by the University of Santiago.

It is a unique project in the Galician University System and there are not any similar degrees in the Northwest of Spain, so its open to potential students from areas like Asturias, Castilla y León and the North of Portugal.
