Green Country Unmanned Aircraft System Competition

The University of Tulsa Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is planning an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) competition September 29-30, 2018, on the TU campus. UAV systems are effective in recruiting middle and high school students to fields related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The industrial applications of UAV systems continue to expand, and TU is home to innovative UAV research.

Teams of no more than 10 members, including advisers, are invited to participate. Registration cost per team is $200.

Learn more about rules and general requirements.

The drone competition will feature two divisions: high school and college. Competition will involve package delivery (outdoors). Competitors will fly their drones at H.A. Chapman Stadium and Mabee Gym in case of extreme weather conditions.

Watch video of last year’s competition and see local media coverage of the event.
