CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Every college wants their students to know, when it comes to their future, the sky’s the limit. Well, a Texas university is actually offering it.

Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi was designated on last December 30th by the FAA to be one of only six test ranges in the United States for unmanned aerial vehicles. That gives university students a chance to work and research drones.

They’re already in use in military operations. Someday they might be used to deliver internet orders. Drones are here to stay and Texas A&M knows the importance of this next step in flight. So school employees and students are letting their fantastic flying machines take flight, hoping their research will set the standards for civilian unmanned aircraft over American skies. According to the University, when there are dangerous scenarios that can pose a risk to manned aircraft and crews, these drones can one day be sent in do the tough tasks.

So keep you’re eyes out for the folks from Texas A&M Corpus Christi because they’re going places, even if they are stationed behind a remote control.
