UAS Test Site Summer Internship Program

The University of Maryland Unmanned Aircraft Systems Sie, a part of the Clark School of Engineering, Aerospace Engineering Department is offering an internship opportunity to undergraduate students.  The 10 week program runs through the summer with an optional part-time continuation into the academic year.

The UMD UAS Test Site leverages the capabilities of the people and infrastructure in Southern Maryland and the University System of Maryland for technical and policy issues associated with UAS. UAS work by the University, the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and industries throughout Maryland is supported by federal, state and local governments, as well as industry and other sectors.

The Test Site brings together:

  • Intellectual expertise and experts, many of whom have been conducting collaborative UAS research for decades
  • Airspace, both segregated and non-segregated, to fly UAS
  • Research and development infrastructure, both existing and planned expansions, to support UAS development
  • Education opportunities, ranging from K-12 through the world-recognized and ranked capabilities of the University of Maryland, to prepare the workforce of tomorrow
