MATE Underwater Robotics Competition

Ages:High School, Undergraduate, Graduate

Types:Submission, Performance, Presentation

Categories:engineering, Ocean Sciences, Robotics, STEM

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The MATE competition challenges K-12, community college, and university students from all over the world to design and build ROVs to tackle missions modeled after scenarios from the ocean workplace.  The competition’s class structure of beginner, intermediate, and advanced complements the education pipeline by providing students with the opportunity to build upon their skills – and the application of those skills – as they engineer increasingly more complex ROVs for increasingly more complex mission tasks.

In addition to engineering their ROVs, the students are required to prepare technical reports, poster displays, and engineering presentations that are delivered to working professionals who serve as competition judges.

The Technical Documentation is judged based on:
  • Teamwork
  • Design Rationale
  • SID
  • Safety
  • Critical Analysis
  • Future Improvements
  • Accounting
The Product Presentation is judged based on:
  • Safety Tabulate
  • Team Presentation
  • Theme/Tasks
  • Overall Design and Workmanship
  • Build vs. buy, new vs. used
  • System Design
 
This competition has not yet listed it's awards.
