With the addition of the Flying Cars Nanodegree Program, Udacity now offers potential students the opportunity to embrace the coming paradigm shift in the future of transportation.
Ishan Gupta, Managing Director (India) – Udacity said, “The Flying Car Nanodegree Program will empower students to translate concepts of drone technology from the classroom to simulation and ultimately build their own self-flying drones. Flying Cars will find application in the aerospace, transportation, technology, and defense industries, and this course will help create the aerial roboticists and autonomous systems engineers that will shape this technology and how people travel in the future.”
Further, Udacity has also partnered with Quidich to be the hiring partner for this new Nanodegree in India. Quidich has been using drones in India to create extraordinary aerial cinematography, aerial visual displays, and project/real-estate surveying. Quidich will be providing internship and mentorship opportunities to the graduates of the Flying Car Nanodegree Program, in addition to sponsoring 10 candidates.
