WE AUV RoboSub Team:

The goal of this competition is to advance the development of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) by challenging a new generation of engineers to perform realistic missions in an underwater environment. The event also serves to foster ties between young engineers and the organizations developing AUV technologies. The Annual RoboSub Competition is an important key to keeping young engineers excited about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math and has been tremendously successful in recruiting students into the high-tech field of maritime robotics.

Challenge Date: July 25-31, 2016. San Diego, California

WE Supermileage Team:

The WE SAE Supermileage Challenge involves the development and construction of a single-person, light weight, fuel-efficient vehicle. Vehicles are powered by a small four-cycle engine. The vehicles will run a specified course with the vehicle obtaining the highest combined kilometers per liter (miles per gallon) rating plus design segment points winning the event. Students have the opportunity to set a world fuel economy record and increase public awareness of fuel efficiency.

Challenge Date: June 9-10, 2016. Marshall, Michigan

WE VEX-U Team:

VEX-U takes the VEX Robotics Competition to the next level for university students (ages 18+). VEX U teams participate in VEX Nothing But Net, but with a few twists. In addition to having a great time and building amazing robots, through their participation in VEX U students get to apply theoretical STEM knowledge they learn in their college courses, while picking-up many of the academic and life skills necessary to excel in the work force.

Challenge Date: February 27, 2016. League City, Texas
