utep robotics program


The UTEP Robotics Program is intended to attract students into engineering through their engagement in robotic competitions. The UTEP College of Engineering and its partners support several robotic competitions geared for students as young as 2nd graders and up to high school students. Whatever your age group, robotic skills will be development, but more importantly so will your team and life skills.
