UAS program confers first degree
Imagine majoring in a field that is set for untold growth in the next 10 years -- and being one of the first five people in the country with that degree.
That's the enviable position Zach Powell finds himself in this spring.
Powell, from Colorado Springs, was among about 90 people graduating Saturday from Kansas State University at Salina -- and the first ever to earn a bachelor's degree in the school's new unmanned aerial systems program.
He also earned degrees in professional pilot and technology management and said he was well on his way to those degrees when the UAS program opened two years ago.
