What Do We Do?

We build a new rover every year to compete in the University Rover Challenge hosted in Hanksville, Utah. The competition has four missions within it: Extreme Retrieval, Equipment Servicing, Autonomous Traversal and Science. We develop sophisticated mechanical, electrical, software, and science systems to overcome the challenges faced in these missions.

Where Do You Fit In?

Our team is interdisciplinary to its core, and we need anyone and everyone of any major to accomplish our competition missions, as well as our broader mission of Today, Tomorrow, & Forever. Here you learn technical aspects of not only your major but of all of the majors represented on our team, while you cooperatively work on our rover and its projects, developing a set of skills employers crave.

All majors can significantly contribute!

The core of the team is comprised of:

  • Mechanical Engineering / Aerospace Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering / Computer Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Geological Engineering / Geology / Geophysics / Chemistry / Chemical Engineering

However, there are needs for Business, Marketing, as well as projects IST, Physics, Technical Communication, and Engineering Management majors.

What Will You Gain?

Experience a full design cycle, from concept to reality. Learn techniques that companies use to produce quality work. Apply classwork, and go beyond, to produce an innovative rover collaboratively with peers from a variety of disciplines.

What Sets Us Apart?

We make explicit the principle that the work we do today benefits ourselves in our future careers, and pushes technology in society forward, which inspires the "next generation". We spend time sharing our work with peer design teams, the academic and engineering communities, and young'uns, pre-college students, through events like our "Tour of the Planets” event.

We make a conscious effort to "Work Hard, Play Hard". We develop truly impressive work while holding social events to make friends across our team, producing a strong team community.

Today, Tomorrow, Forever.
