Empowering the Next
Generation of Innovators

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.

Our Purpose


Provide students with a hands-on learning experience and an opportunity to work in a diverse and unified team.


Foster a spirit of teamwork and friendship and encourage a balanced and productive student lifestyle.


Work towards the common goal of maximizing our potential and performing well in competition.

The Challenge

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.
