Drone pilots and green youth employability


Mihhail Zautin, a bachelor's student in the field of electrical energy and mechatronics, contributed both theoretically and practically to the Erasmus project. The project aimes to introduce environmentally conscious employment opportunities to young people, in specific Zautin addressed the opportunities in the field of drone pilots.
Drones are already starting to be used in most sectors for different purposes, and people are still unaware of this. It is a market that is constantly evolving, but some of the many job opportunities that this profession offers today are environmental jobs. And that's why with the project „Drone pilots as an answer to green youth employability“ we want to promote the digitalization of the environmental sector through the use of drones, and as a professional opportunity for young people.
The target group of the project is all those young people (18–25) who are interested in protecting the environment or at least minimizing its effects on it as much as possible, from green and sustainable jobs, which contribute to the modernization of the sector and the circular economy. The number of job vacancies for drone pilots has increased exponentially worldwide, especially in their environmental applications. Without a doubt, drone pilots are one of the most fashionable and promising professions today. Job offers for drone pilots are already very common in the different job portals.

Field: YOUTH
Project title in English: Drone pilots as an answer to green youth employability
Project Acronym: FLYOUTH
Project Total Duration: 2022–2024
Partners: MTÜ Innova Estonia
(Coordinaator) and and non-profit MTÜ Pacto Verde (Spain)

  • To promote an understanding about the relation between digitalization and environmental challenges.
  • To raise young people's awareness of the importance of environmental protection.
  • To provide young people with the necessary skills and methodologies to combat environmental challenges.
  • To improve the drone skills of young people so that they can become involved in the digitization of the environmental sector.
  • To provide young people with updated skills to get green employment.

Study Laboratories

The laboratories in the Electrical Power Engineering and Mechatronics institute have up-to-date workplaces which students can use for both teaching and student work.
The use of hardware and software in the laboratories is possible via prior agreement.

The laboratory has different types of robots used in the industry today: Scara, Delta, 6DOF, Cartesian, Cobot, and a selection of educational robots. Such companies as ABB, Festo, Bosch-Rexroth, Sankyo, Hirata, Universal robot, UFactory, Stäubli, Double Robotics are represented in the laboratory from the best-known robot and unemployment automation equipment companies.

Welcome to the Challenge

The MathWorks Minidrone Competitions introduce participants to Model-Based Design using Simulink. Through these competitions, participants design a line follower algorithm for a minidrone. Along the way, they receive an introduction to Model-Based Design—they'll design the system, model its behavior, and deploy their algorithm to hardware.

We invite you to take part of the Bosch Future Mobility Challenge. Bosch Future Mobility Challenge is an international technical competition initiated by Bosch Engineering Center Cluj in 2017. The competition invites student teams every year to develop autonomous driving and connectivity algorithms on 1/10 scale vehicles, provided by the company, to navigate in a designated environment simulating a miniature smart city. The students work on their projects in collaboration with Bosch experts and academic professors for several months to develop the best-performing algorithms. For the finals, the best teams are selected, and the top ones will be awarded with great prizes.

In case you feel interested in the competition,
please join the QA session on the 17th of October in NRG-422 at 10:45 am.
There you will be able to present your questions and get more details.
It’s a great chance to learn about:

  • Machine vision applications
  • Robot operating system (ROS)
  • Embedded systems (Raspberry Pi 4, Jetson Nano, NucleoF401RE)
  • Control of systems
  • Programming in Python or C++
  • Project management and teamwork

All mechatronics students can ask for a Fusion 360 licence, which can be used either in a thesis frame, for educational projects or for DIY projects at home.
Fusion 360 has a number of uses:
- 3D modelling
- Generative design
- Electronics and PCB design
- Simulation and other functions.
If you are interested in getting this license, please email viktor.rjabtsikov@taltech.ee and tell us what you plan to do with it.
