The use of technology in agriculture has grown in population and need, but the skills taught through courses at Redlands will prepare you for careers in a variety of industries, such as oil and gas, real estate, and public utilities and safety.
Check out these drone and coding classes.
- Drone Technology
Drone Technology I and II are both 8-week courses and will prepare you for the FAA TRUST test and the Federal Aviation Administration Part 107 Certification process.
AGTE 1013 DRONE TECHNOLOGY I
This course prepares students with an introduction to drone flight and proficiency, with particular focus on safe and efficient operation. Students will be exposed to multiple drone types and will have dedicated flight time to become familiar with controls and techniques. In addition, this course will include all materials and knowledge base necessary to pass the FAA TRUST test now required for recreational drone use.
AGTE 2013 DRONE TECHNOLOGY II
This course prepares students to complete the Federal Aviation Administration Part 107 Certification process, including the required examination. Key focal areas are: Drone Properties; Drone Maintenance; Pilot Decision Making; Load Factors; Use of Sectional Charts and Topographical Maps; Pilot Performance; and, Emergency Procedures.
- Drone Photography and Videography
AGTE 1022 DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY
This 8-week course reinforces the basics of flying a drone, with particular attention to fundamentals, safety, and legal aspects. Photography and videography instruction, including rules of composition relative to this type of imagery, practice flight patterns, and troubleshooting aerial imagery problems, is presented along with composition and photographic/videographic technique and editing.
- Coding and Robotics
AGTE 1033 CODING AND ROBOTICS I
This course provides an overview of electrical components including breadboards, batteries, LEDs, resistors, jumper wires, and switches; building series and parallel circuits; working with Raspberry Pi; and, writing code in Python.
AGTE 2034 CODING AND ROBOTICS II
This course provides guided practice in the use of electrical components, building circuits, working with Raspberry Pi, and writing code in Python, along with the complementary skills of reading schematics, troubleshooting, project planning, and multimeter use. Students will synthesize activities and knowledge base to build a fully programmable, mobile robot.
- Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
AGTE 2022 INTRODUCTION TO GIS
This course introduces students to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and its applications to spatial data management as a tool. Overall topics include assessment of vector and raster systems, scale, resolution, map projection, coordinate systems, georeferencing, and GPS. Hands-on exposure to spatial analysis and modeling with GIS computer applications is provided during laboratory assignments.
