WHO WE ARE

Team Bath Drones is a group of undergraduates at the University of Bath who design, build and test Unmanned Aerial Systems. Team Bath Drones was founded in 2015 as a competitor for the IMechE UAS Challenge. Since then we have entered a new aircraft each year with great success. Each year we start from scratch, first as a paper design exercise in our 3rd year, and then as a voluntary team in our final years. Our expertise covers the complete design, manufacture and testing of autonomous Unmanned Aerial Systems.
