      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.



      We are looking for members of all majors and backgrounds to join our teams!

      Python Course 2022

      Unmanned Aerial Systems at UCR is hosting our second annual Python workshop this year, this time extended into a full course spanning 2 phases! This is highly recommended for all engineering subteam members and anyone who wants to pick up a new programming language and build their resume skills!

      Phase I (Winter) will introduce basic python syntax, VSCode set up, and other foundational principles. Phase II (Spring) will be project-based and we will be teaching machine learning through Python.

      You will need to:
      1) attend Phase I lectures
      2) participate in the assignments

      And we will invite you to:
      1) attend our guest speaker event at the end of this quarter
      2) apply for Phase II (you may attend phase II without phase I if you are already proficient in Python)
