      Welcome to UC Riverside Unmanned Aerial Systems!

      We are an interdisciplinary group of students focused on designing, constructing and programming an autonomous aerial vehicle to compete in the annual AUVSI-SUAS competition.

      Despite the 2020-2021 competition's cancellation due to COVID-19, we are still creating opportunities for our own students to strive and apply their in-class knowledge in practical and educational environments. We have expanded our project's scope to include diverse project-based educational and professional opportunities to push our students and the students of Riverside in general to pursue their passions and hone their skills in the field of aerospace, business, engineering, and more.



      We're actively recruiting for the 2021-2022 school year!

      Quarterly Workshop Series

      This past Spring 2021, UCR-UAS taught students how to use basic to intermediate functions of an Arduino micro-controller to aid in the completion of a virtual or physical project.

      We have previously hosted a Python Workshop and will continue with Solid-works this coming Fall 2021!

      All materials (syllabus, recordings, etc.) are free to view on our Workshops page:
