Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Research Project

The Katie School of Insurance helps to facilitate student research projects each semester to help students develop skills in research, critical thinking, data analysis, business presentation, and business writing.
The Katie School Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Research Project is an Illinois State University, College of Business, Katie School of Insurance multidisciplinary student initiative aimed at studying and researching UAV applications in business, and developing risk management, security, and safety protocols for their use. The team consists of students in Insurance, Agriculture, Information Technology, and Political Science, who, through their combined efforts, is working to produce a research report detailing their study results and conclusions. Additionally, the team will consistently update interested parties through periodical articles and blog postings. Ultimately, the multiple articles and the subsequent published report will seek to educate and inform those concerned with the safe implementation and commercial use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in the domestic United States.
