Unmanned Aerial Vehicles at Berkeley (UAVs@Berkeley) is a student organization dedicated to providing a central resource for all topics related to drones at UC Berkeley.

By providing a resource-rich organization for UC Berkeley students interested in designing, building, and flying UAVs for a multitude of purposes, we hope to incite collaboration across multiple engineering disciplines. Students will be encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and learn new skills by working on project teams with other majors.

Activities include a range of aerial photography/videography projects, academic research projects, and racing competitions. Other goals include: teaching basic, intermediate, and advanced courses in flying, operating, and controlling UAVs; organizing and setting up events for UAV flying meet-ups and outreach opportunities; and creating an open space for all UAV enthusiasts, engineers, and flyers to collaborate and create new and rich experiences through the use of UAVs.

Above all, UAVs@Berkeley seeks to bring the capabilities and potential of unmanned aerial vehicles to the minds and hands of students, engineers and the public alike.

 Cal ID required for entrance into Moffitt Library.
