The UAS Challenge (Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge) is our leading annual student competition in the aerospace sector.
We lead the way in promoting value and cohesion within the industry, providing unique opportunities to universities, their teams, the individual participants and of course for our partnering organisations.
Launched in 2014 with the key objectives of developing professional engineers and inspiring the next generation, the challenge is now in its fourth year.
Teams of undergraduates from all over the world take part in the Challenge. They undertake a full design and build cycle of a UAS with specific mission objectives. The Challenge bridges the gap between academia and industry in developing applied UAS-related activities, giving you the perfect opportunity to strengthen links with industry, other universities and enhance employment opportunities for graduates in the aerospace sector.

Given the experience we have from the Institution’s globally successful Formula Student competition, our direct links and relevance to both students and industry are assured.
