Adam Greco, a supervisory air traffic control specialist at the FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center in Egg Harbor Township, will teach the course.

Greco said this course will appeal to those with a general interest in drones, and to those who want to use them professionally in areas like photography, real estate and site inspections.

"They will learn how to fly properly and legally," said Greco.

The university says the course will teach students the history and future of drones, regulations, safety and both satellite uplink and direct line-of-sight flight, in addition to autonomous flight.
