About the Course

How can drones be used for good in environmental science? What types of data can scientists collect, and how should they go about collecting it using drones? Why should someone integrate drones into their existing career or pursue this field? This Duke Environment+ course serves as an introduction for anyone interested in learning more about drone use in the environmental sciences. No background knowledge in drones is assumed or necessary. Over the course of four weeks, you will discover the basics of drone use in the environmental sciences, including specific benefits of using drones for scientific research; types of drones and how they are used for different purposes and missions; and best research practices, including legal and ethical concerns. The final week of the course will help you get started on exploring different career paths that involve drones by introducing you to professionals working with this technology in the environmental sciences. By the end of the course, you should be better equipped to consider how to use drones for your own research interests, and you will be better prepared for the more in-depth Environment+ course sequence UAS Applicants and Operations in Environmental Science, should you decide to continue your studies....

Through this course I achieved everything I have planned. It became the start point for some of my future plans. All the materials provided during weeks were cristal clear, which helped me to easy understand as non-native English speaker. The last but not the least, that course had the quality I expected as Duke University course.

Really enjoyed the course with the engaging instructor and valuable lessons about using drones for environmental science research projects. I look forward to more "in-depth" courses to continue planning for a future project using drones as an adjunct to on the ground searching.
