Centre for Aerospace Electronics



About the Centre

The Centre for Aerospace Electronics is one of the core Technology Centres under the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Established in 2003, it supports the Diploma in Aerospace Electronics and provides students with facilities to carry out wide spectrum of aerospace technology projects.

The Centre actively seeks industry collaboration to develop solutions for industry applications. This allows students to solve real world problems, preparing them to be work ready.


Capabilities and Technical Services

The Centre has worked on Autonomous UAV systems as well as other industry projects over the past years. With the experience gained, we are able to carry out work in the following areas:

  • Construction of flight simulator prototypes
  • Design and fabrication of aircraft battery charging systems
  • Design and fabrication of semi-autonomous/autonomous flying machines (UAVs)
  • Quick prototyping and testing of UAVs using commercial off-the-shelf components
  • Customisation of UAVs for industry applications
