Monash Uncrewed Aerial Systems

A student-run team that creates and pushes aerial systems to greater heights.

Who are we?

Established in 2011, Monash UAS is a student-run team that has competed in various UAV challenges including the 2014 Outback Rescue Challenge, 2016 Medical Express Challenge and 2018 Medical Express Challenge. In 2014, we were the highest ranking undergraduate team, and in 2018 we ranked first overall. 

Our mission is to advance the development of UAVs for civilian and emergency response applications, whilst inspiring and educating the next generation of engineers. 

Our Sections


Our Project

The team is currently in the testing phase for our latest aircraft – The Albatross – a 3 metre span cruise-capable multirotor designed to maximise endurance and range whilst enabling easy deployment with Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capabilities. When complete, the aircraft will demonstrate it’s potential for emergency response applications by completing a live simulated Search and Rescue (SAR) scenario in late 2023.


Consisting of four sections, Aerostructures, Avionics, Operations and Flight Operations, we are a multidisciplinary team with students coming from all kinds of degrees and specialisations.

Currently our general recruitment is closed!
