Texas Regional Robotics Symposium (TEROS)

We're excited for the first ever Texas Regional Robotics Symposium, on Friday, April 29th!

The Texas Regional Robotics Symposium (TEROS) 2022 aims to bring together Texas robotics researchers. TEROS is a one-day event with research talks, poster presentations, and social activities. The goal of TEROS is to share exciting ideas and build new connections in the robotics research community in Texas.

We have been closely monitoring the developing situation with COVID-19. Given the low COVID-19 community level in Austin, we are planning for an in-person meeting (with a 100-person in-person registration cap). The event will also be live-streamed for those who are unable to attend in person.

More information can be found at:


We are proud to share that this event is free for every attendee, and it will be a held in a hybrid format with a limited number of tickets available for in-person attendees due to COVID-19. We ask that participants claim in-person tickets after confirming availability with their schedule. We look forward to seeing you either virtually or in-person.

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.
