Explore the possibilities of technology
Discover the transformative power of drone technology in the realm of research and education. From enhancing fieldwork studies to providing innovative teaching tools, our comprehensive drone solutions are designed to empower educational institutions and research facilities.
Coptrz delivers delivers innovative, hands-on, and impactful drone tech to elevate educational experiences.
Drone technology offers a dynamic and interactive way to engage students in various subjects. From geography to engineering, drones provide hands-on learning opportunities that go beyond traditional classroom settings, making complex concepts more accessible and stimulating.
Drones are increasingly used in various industries such as agriculture, construction, and environmental monitoring. By integrating drone technology into educational curricula, students gain practical skills that are directly applicable to future careers, thereby increasing their employability.
Drones can collect data in ways that were previously difficult or impossible, opening up new avenues for academic research. Whether it's mapping archaeological sites or monitoring environmental changes, drones offer a versatile tool for in-depth study and analysis.
Coptrz supply to more than 200+ educational institutions across the UK & Ireland
The role of drones in education
Drones are revolutionising the educational landscape by offering unique, hands-on learning experiences across various disciplines.
In science and engineering courses, drones serve as practical tools for teaching aerodynamics, programming, and robotics. Geography and environmental science classes utilise drones for aerial mapping and data collection, providing real-world context to theoretical knowledge.
In media and journalism, drones are employed for capturing dynamic footage, teaching students about cinematography and storytelling. Furthermore, specialised drone courses are emerging, offering certifications that prepare students for drone-operating roles in multiple industries.
Overall, drones enrich education by blending theory with practical skills, making learning more engaging and relevant.

ENGINEERING & ROBOTICS
Drones serve as invaluable educational tools, offering hands-on experience in aerodynamics, robotics, and coding. They bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application, enhancing students' problem-solving and innovative skills in real-world engineering challenges.
ENVIRONMENTAL LIFE SCIENCES
Drones provide a non-intrusive means for monitoring wildlife and marine ecosystems. They enable students to collect unique data, deepening their understanding of conservation, environmental impact, and species behaviour, thereby enriching their academic and research capabilities.
GEOGRAPHY & AGRICULTURE
Drones facilitate detailed aerial mapping and site surveys, providing invaluable data for in-depth analysis. They enrich studies in archaeology, geography, and agriculture by offering a more comprehensive and nuanced view of landscapes, historical sites, and natural phenomena.
Drones paired with Pix4D in university construction courses offer precise 3D modelling, real-time site surveys, enhance project visualisation, support safety inspections, foster hands-on learning, and advance students' tech proficiency for future industry needs.
AGEAGLE REDEDGE-P DUAL
This 10-band multispectral and RGB composite drone sensor offers high-resolution data for plant classification, weed identification, and environmental conservation. It's also adept at analysing vegetation in water bodies for comprehensive environmental research.
DJI ZENMUSE L1
The Zenmuse L1 features a Livox Lidar module, high-accuracy IMU, and 1-inch CMOS camera on a 3-axis gimbal. Paired with Matrice 300 RTK and DJI Terra, it offers real-time 3D data capture. Ideal for mapping complex structures, it provides efficient, precise structural modelling and surveying.
EMESENT HOVERMAP ST-X
The Hovermap ST-X utilises advanced LiDAR technology to deliver high-density point clouds quickly and accurately over a 300-meter range. Specialising in both expansive and close-range scans, it features award-winning Wildcat SLAM and Automated Ground Control Points for sub-centimeter precision.
DJI ZENMUSE P1
The Zenmuse P1 features a full-frame sensor and interchangeable fixed-focus lenses, all mounted on a 3-axis stabilised gimbal. Engineered specifically for photogrammetry tasks, this setup elevates both efficiency and precision, setting a new standard in aerial data collection.

T-Levels are nationally-recognised qualifications designed for 16 to 19-year-olds. These courses take 2 years to complete and are roughly equivalent to 3 A-levels. Developed in collaboration with leading businesses and employers, T-Levels aim to equip students with industry-relevant knowledge and skills. For example, the Design, Surveying, and Planning T-Level course includes drone laws in its syllabus.
T-Levels have become a trending educational pathway in colleges and academies. If your institution offers T-Levels, you have a unique opportunity to align your curriculum with cutting-edge technology and practices. Generous government innovation funds are available to enhance your courses with state-of-the-art hardware and software. This allows students to gain practical experience with technology widely used in professional settings. At Coptrz, we assist colleges in creating customised educational packages to maximise the benefits of T-Levels in these innovative courses.
Absolutely, as long as the third-party payload is compatible with the drone. We offer an array of compatible third-party payloads on our shop page, including but not limited to the Emesent Hovermap, Ageagle Red Edge-P/Dual, Phase One P3, and LiDARUSA Revolution 120.
The general consensus and expectation for university staff is that you will be trained to the GVC standard. The A2 CofC course is the quickest way to get your hours up and flying but there are many limitations to the A2 CofC when most university spaces are congested areas, leaving no options other than the GVC course.
Our headquarters is located in Leeds, but we also offer training at various locations throughout the UK. To find the training centre closest to you, click here.
