This paper discusses the efforts at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus to integrate the design and operation of Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) into the undergraduate aerospace engineering curriculum. With the help of an industrial partner, a class project which involved developing an automatic pilot and guidance laws for a UAV was integrated into the senior design course. The UAV need was the Sky Spirit-a multipurpose aerial sensing platform being developed by the Lockheed-Martin Corporation. The end result has been a course which provides students the opportunity to exercise their engineering knowledge to the process of developing and testing an automatic pilot for a UAV. We discuss learning experiences that are general to all aspects of aerospace engineering and those elements unique to the design process of UAVs. Lessons learned and future plans for improving the curriculum are discussed.
