Texas Robotics has postponed the Open House and Research Symposium

Due to the global health situation, we at Texas Robotics must postpone the Open House and Research Symposium originally scheduled for May 11 & 12 until the fall of 2020. We now plan to hold the event in fall 2020, and we will be excited to showcase the newly renovated Anna Hiss Gymnasium, which will serve as the home of Texas Robotics, as well as feature presentations on groundbreaking research from our faculty, students, and industry partners during the Texas Robotics Research Symposium.


We will send out important event information and more in the coming weeks. Sign up now to ensure you receive updates on robotics research at The University of Texas at Austin and learn more about opportunities to stay engaged.

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.
