Team 2022-2023




Our Mission

We are DroneTeam 5.0, twenty-six students with one common mission: innovating and accelerating the drone industry to make a positive impact. We do this by participating in the annual iMechE UAS Challenge, where students need to develop new drone solutions that can perform a humanitarian aid mission.  For 2023, our goal is to bring back home a prize, as well as participate in a real life humanitarian aid mission.

DroneTeam Twente is a student team from Enschede. With our innovative emergency aid drones, we aim to improve health access. Together with our partners we develop and research innovative drone solutions to achieve this, while inspiring  the world about drones and their applications. Will you join us on our mission?
