About Us Meet The Club

The Club

The Aerial Robotics Club at NC State is a student organization that brings excellent students together to do excellent work. We build custom airframes, install custom electronics, write custom software, and integrate everything together into a world-ranking UAS.

Our member base consists primarily of undergraduate students at NC State, along with a few graduate student advisors. Our members come from many different majors, including Aerospace Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science. Our club welcomes all, regardless of major; we seek out students with a passion for learning new things, and applying that knowledge to solve difficult challenges.
