About us

The UPC Venturi association was founded in 2014 by eight aeronautical engineering students from ESEIAAT in order to complement their academic career with real projects. During their first year, all his efforts were focused on designing and building an aircraft that could participate in the international competition Air Cargo Challange, which took place in August 2015, at Stuttgart. UPC Venturi reached the 10th position out of 28 teams from all over the world in its first participation. 

In September 2015, with the intention of keep acquiring knowledge while sharing with other school partners, the association opened the doors to expand the team. The result was a group of 27 students from aeronautical and industrial engineering, who joined the team to develop an innovative project, a hydrogen propelled UAV for social applications. 

Due to the great growth in this field of the market, and the opportunity it entailed, part of the UPC Venturi team decided to leave the association and founded Venturi Unmanned Technologies, an incorporation dedicated to commercial exploitation of a hydrogen-powered UAV. That way, the association returned to its origins and is currently preparing its participation in the ACC 2017, held in Zagreb, where 35 teams will be participating this time.
