28 September 2017 – Undergraduate and graduate students from accredited schools, colleges, and universities will be qualified to purchase the new semester or yearly rental.
Now that drone hardware is becoming increasingly easier to program and fly, colleges and universities around the world are expanding their curriculum. Students can learn to manage massive amounts of drone imagery and data.
"We have been amazed watching our academic users teaching photogrammetry with drones and Pix4Dmapper," says Lorenzo Martelletti, Pix4D’s Director of Sales and Marketing. "As per their request, we now wish to make it easy and affordable enrolling students in the many drone courses that are flourishing everywhere in the world."
Initial roll out of the semester student licenses is occurring through current academic partners. Faculty or staff that have single academic or classroom licenses with a valid support & upgrade subscription are able to log into their Pix4D accounts, upload a class email list, and email students invitations to purchase from the Pix4D online store.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University currently has over 1,500 students enrolled in UAS education through our degrees, minors, and specializations in unmanned systems. Leveraging the new Pix4D student license puts a powerful, and affordable, software suite in our student’s hands enabling them to explore the industry-leading photogrammetry software at a price lower than most textbooks says David Thirtyacre, Chair of the Department of Flight for the Worldwide Campus.
