Accu is sponsoring the University of Bath's entry in the 2019 UAS Challenge. The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Challenge is the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' annual student aerospace competition. First held in 2014, it aims to inspire the next generation of professional engineers by bridging the gap between academia and industry. The year-long competition sees undergraduate students from around the world commit to a full design and build programme of a UAS, with a strong focus on safety and technical competence.

Team Bath Drones (teambathdrones.com) is a group of final-year undergraduate engineers at the University of Bath working to create the ultimate autonomous Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS); they were the overall grand champions of the IMechE UAS Challenge 2017, as well as winning the prize for the most Innovative design in 2018. Led by a team of final-year undergraduate students and supervised by Dr Pejman Iravani, Dr Jon du Bois and Dr David Cleaver, the team has interdisciplinary expertise in aeronautical, mechanical and electrical engineering.
Accu will be pledging a range of precision components to be used in the design and manufacture of Team Bath Drones' 2019 UAS.
