Inspire. Educate. Innovate.

Join our cause

      Welcome to Unmanned Aerial Systems at UC Riverside!


      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.
