Micromouse is actually a miniature Robot controlled by a Microcontroller.
The mouse has to find its way through an arbitrary maze. It competes with
other mice to see which one finds the center of the maze within the least amount of time. The Micro Mouse competition is held once a year in Spring around April It includes a design contest, a paper contest and Micro Mouse. Students can enter the competition individually or with a group.Participants are required to be members of IEEE.

Mark Miliano, the Micro Mouse officer and the instructor of ECE191 (Micro
Mouse design & construction), says he would recommend students who are interested in Micro Mouse to take ECE186 and ECE285. However, those two courses are not necessary as long as they can build a Micro Mouse by using the knowledge they have. Here is the picture of Mark Millano's Micromouse.
