Who We Are
The University of Ottawa Mars Rover Team is a student-led, multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the design and construction of a rover suitable for the exploration of extraterrestrial environments. Through hands-on experience, we aim to foster a love for STEM fields as well as inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists.
The University Rover Challenge (URC) is the world’s premier robotics competition for college students. Held annually in the desert of southern Utah in the United States, URC challenges student teams to design and build the next generation of Mars rovers that will one day work alongside astronauts exploring the Red Planet.
