October Athenaeum

RESCHEDULED Nov. 8, 2017 at Noon we will have Dr. Jim Peterson discussing the new Unmanned Aircraft Systems program for Southeast. If you have the will to be a part of a new and growing field that can prove invaluable to law enforcement, agriculture, videography, surveying and many other areas, Southeast Missouri State University’s Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) can help get you there. But, what is this program? How did it materialize? Who is this “Drone Dood”? What are we chasing? Why does it fit into Polytech? How is it implemented? And how can we ALL work together?

All Athenaeums are free to the campus community and to the public. These events are located in Sadie's Place on the main floor of Kent Library on every last Wednesday of the month.
