AIME Projects

The MATE ROV Competition is an underwater robotics (aka remotely operated vehicle or ROV) challenge that engages a global community of learners each year. The competition is challenging its community to design and build an ROV and the necessary sensors and tooling to support work to combat climate change, provide clean energy, feed our growing global population, monitor ocean health, preserve our maritime history, and “deliver, together, the ocean we need for the future we want!”

The Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition (IGVC) is an annual international robotics competition for teams of undergraduate and graduate students. Teams design and build an autonomous ground vehicle capable of completing several difficult challenges.

The mini capstone group provides students of all class and skill levels to work on year-long technical projects similar to those encountered in capstone projects nearing a student's senior year

 Combat Robotics
Competitors design and operate remote-controlled fighting machines that battle one on one within an elimination-style bracket until one remains.
