Join DroneTeam Twente 2023-24
DroneTeam Twente is a student team that builds innovative humanitarian aid drones. Each year, we develop an autonomous drone that competes in the iMechE UAS Challenge in the United Kingdom. Starting 2022 DroneTeam Twente is participating in real life humanitarian-aid misions in Africa and South America.
Do you want to apply your skills? Are you interested in a challenge? And ready to make a real-world difference? Then join the DroneTeam!
Functions are full-time or part-time (8 hr/week).
You can also join our Freelance Program or do a Bachelor Assignment with us!
Build the future of drones
At DroneTeam Twente, you get hands-on experience with developing a brand-new drone and work together with an awesome group of enthusiastic students. By taking part in an international competition you contribute to our mission: making the next generation emergency aid drones!
Work in an awesome student team
With a student team of full-time and part-time members you develop a close bond on your shared journey to the UAS Challenge.
Apply your studies in real life
At the team, you can put your studies into practice. Whether you study Electrical Engineering or Creative Business, we have a place for you!
Work with unique drones
Our innovative 3D-printed humanitarian aid drones don’t exist anywhere else. With the aircraft we develop we push the industry forward.
Develop your talents
In the DroneTeam, we provide space for you to develop yourself. You can work on your own drone-related project in the team.
Who are we looking for?
As team manager you are responsible for the project. You are good at keeping an overview, speaking in front of the press and motivating the team. You work closely with the other fulltimers and support everyone in the team to make sure we accomplish our goals.Apply full-time
The technical manager oversees the technical subteams and makes sure we deliver a working drone at the end of the year. By keeping track of all parts and deadlines you make sure the drone gets build and wins prizes as a result.Apply full-time
Finance & Acquisition
Keep track of the money and our spending to ensure our financial situation is secure. In addition you will be responsible for the acquisition of new partners and will be our contact point for current partners to maintain our relationship with them.Apply full-time
Marketing & Communication
Show the world what the team is doing in the news, on social media and on the website. You make the graphic design and branding of our drone and the DroneTeam. You also organize our events such as the drone reveal, PR stunts, the UAS Challenge and more!Apply full- or part-time
Aerodynamics and Simulation
The aerodynamics subteam determines the optimal wing design by doing CFD simulations and wind tunnel testing. This team is responsible for an optimal outer shape of the drone to ensure enough lift with as little drag as possible on the aircraft.Apply full- or part-time
It’s your responsibility to design a lightweight internal frame of the drone and to make sure it can handle the loads it’s subjected to. You will design the mounts, select the materials, and test the frame to see if it can withstand all forces during flight.Apply full- or part-time
Electronics and Control
This subteam designs the electronics that make drone fly, while being as efficient with power as possible. That means programming the flight controller to ensure that all sensors, motors and control surfaces cooperate together and the drone keeps flying.Apply full- or part-time
The software team ensures that the drone can fly autonomously and recognize its ground target with a limited amount of processing power. The result is that the drone drops the aid package at the right location without human intervention.Apply full- or part-time
You make sure that the progress of the team is documented and recorded so in the future we won’t make the same mistakes as in the past, and we can keep the drones previous teams build flying. This is crucial for the continuity of the team.Apply part-time
