Running its course over a period of 4 days, it will be conducted in the premises of IIT Kanpur itself. The interested students will be required to pay Rs 20,000 while fees for the professionals of higher order is Rs 40,000. The accommodation will be taken care of by the campus authorities. 

The new course aims at providing hands-on training to participants for understanding and designing a UAV. There will also be flight trials and testing at Flight Lab of IIT Kanpur.
