Our Mission

We are the fourth DroneTeam, consisting of thirteen students with one common mission: innovating and accelerating the drone industry to make a positive impact. We do this by annually participating in the prestigious iMechE UAS Challenge, for which students need to design and develop new drone solutions that can perform a humanitarian aid mission.  For 2022, the goal is to finish in the podium places!

DroneTeam Twente is a student team from Enschede founded in 2018. Our core purpose is to improve the world with drone technology, and we do this by yearly building an innovative emergency aid drone. Together with our partners and the University of Twente we research and make innovative drone designs possible, while educating and inspiring people in Twente about drones and their applications. Will you join us on our journey?
