The VEX U college and university competition has more than 350 teams competing in local tournaments and at VEX Worlds. Based on the VEX Robotics Competition, VEX U teams are allowed more customization and greater flexibility than other grade levels while providing the effective costs and real-world limitations of a restricted development environment.

From Participant to Partner

We interviewed Oscar McCullough, former VEX U participant and now an RECF Event Partner (EP) about why volunteerism is important and how robotics prepared him for his current career. Click Here

Teams of university students build robots based on the Vex robotics platform. Two alliances – one “red” and one “blue” – composed of two teams each, compete in matches consisting of a fifteen second autonomous period followed by one minute and forty-five seconds of driver-controlled play. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing Alliance by Stacking Cones on Goals, by Scoring Mobile Goals in Goal Zones, by having the Highest Stacks, and by Parking Robots. Teams start at local matches and must rise up through the ranks to make it to Vex Worlds.

Teams score points according to each year's Game Manual. Find the latest manual on the competition website.
