More Than Robots
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 Pre-K and up to high school students. Whatever your age group, robotic skills will be developed, but more importantly so will your team and life skills.
