Students at the ITC Faculty have founded a new Drone Committee. The student group had its official launch on Friday and will now start preparing its first activities, which will include flying workshops as well as drone races. President of the committee Kiegan Naguar explains what prompted this initiative.
Born in the USA, studies in the Netherlands, work in Bolivia, Master’s degree in Spain and Sweden... and now a PhD position at ITC. That is Caroline Gevaert’s life in a nutshell. The research of this cosmopolitan PhD candidate is focused on mapping informal settlements with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). ‘I can’t believe it’s my job,' she says about flying drones in Africa.
