SAE Aero Design Team at K-State

Welcome to our website!

We are an extra-curricular engineering design team completely organized and lead by students.

Any K-State student is invited to become a member of our team, and no experience is required. Contact Us if you wish to join us or want to shoot us a question!

The Team's objective is to design and build a remote-controlled model aircraft to fly with a maximum payload for competition. Two of these competitions are held in the United States each year. Teams of college students from universities all over the world compete at these competitions.

Motivation of our team every competition year is the desire to be successful. We set goals and travel across the U.S. in order to have a chance to place within the top three teams at our competitions. In addition to the competition aspect, we also take pride in being a part of a team and developing friendships from it. Also, this design project allows us to utilize our skills and knowledge outside of the classroom. It encompasses all aspects of engineering, including organization, designing, building and testing. This provides the opportunity for us to learn about aerodynamics, aviation and model aircraft in a fun and challenging way.
