Student Programs

UT Austin supports many faculty and student driven groups with a passion for robotics. Everyone is encouraged to contact any of the groups below if you are interested in learning more. Or, if your group is not listed here and should be, do not hesitate to contact us.

Robotics and Automation Society

​IEEE Robotics & Automation Society at UT Austin: A student organization building robots since 1997. The group has a large majority of undergraduate students with backgrounds from mechanical, electrical, aerospace engineering and computer science, but all are welcome. RAS aims to help students gain practical multi-disciplinary experience in the lab and demonstrate their abilities at various robotics competitions. Group places a high priority in community outreach and participation in robotic competitions.

ROV competition

The Marine Technology Society was founded in 1963 in order to give members of academia, government and industry a common forum for the exchange of information and ideas in the marine technology area. The society sponsors team(s) that participate in MATE's Annual International ROV Competition.

UVA Team

The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) team designs and builds unmanned aircraft systems that can fly autonomously. The team has been recognized for their work in an annual competition hosted by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International.
