UAV Design Project: SURMAIN DRONE

Briefly speaking, the project consisted in designing an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV, 

commonly known as “drone”). The main motivation behind this project was to develop the 

product as if it was a real project for a company. The idea was to perform a real engineering 

project in order to allow deep knowledge of the process through which an engineering product 

is made. Four subjects were involved (either directly or indirectly): Mechanical & Graphic 

Design, Fluid Mechanics II, Aeronautical Structures & Vibrations, and Aerodynamics & 

Aeroelasticity.
