Robotics competition

  1. Sep 16, 2005 #1
    Does anyone know of any robotics competition that will be taking place sometime later this year or next year?

    I'm looking for a competition that involves college level students.

    The US FIRST competition is held once a year. The competition is for high school students, but college students and professional engineers typically team up to mentor the high school teams.

    That's quite a few competitions, thanks for the links guys. I was expecting more local (US) competitions though.

    RoboCup US Open is probably the closest that I have seen so far, and if it is held the same time every year then it should be held next may again (which is good).
