Drone Club

Home / Student DEV. / Students Technical Clubs / Drone Club

Drone club is a Technical platform for students to share their ideas, collaborate with each other to come up with unique solutions and work in teams to prepare drones as well as robotics based technical projects and cultivate technical plus soft skills along the way. Drone club was established in 2018 by Students of RIT and has continuously been developing drones and sharing knowledge through various activities. The objective of drone club is to develop interest in Robotics, Automation, Artificial Intelligence and Cloud computing among the students of RIT and provide a platform and resources to experiment effectively  with these technologies. Drone club allows students to apply theoretical knowledge in meaningful practical applications. Students develop their non-technical skills through various activities such as Brainstorming sessions, Workshop instruction and collaboration with other clubs.

Successful project execution through personal development is the main objective of the club.


“ To develop full-fledged Drone ecosystem comprising of Cloud, Artificial Intelligence and advanced Drones for aerial monitoring and analysis, and share the knowledge along the way! ”


  • Provide a platform to learn and experiment on diverse technologies in Robotics, Drone technologies and Artificial Intelligence.
  • To build advanced and autonomous drones.
  • To make students capable of designing, building, programming robotic systems, drones and peripheral systems.
  • Share knowledge through Workshops, awareness sessions and collaborations.
  • To participate in robotics based competitions
