UCL Rover aims to be the first british team to compete in the European Rover challenge.
UCL Engineering's unique approach to teaching roots from the interdisciplinary nature of engineering, requiring emphasis on engaging students with practical engineering from the start. Therefore, the Integrated Engineering Program was launched in 2014, whereby students could appreciate working with individuals from different disciplines.
Ranging from computer science to civil engineering, the broad spectrum of talent, skill set and outlook has helped reinvigorate how engineering is taught, with a recently published MIT report identifying UCL as an emerging leader in its approach to teaching future generations of budding engineers.
The mars rover team consists of an interdisciplinary team of students working on the design and manufacture of a 50 kg Mars rover, ensuring it complies with the Rover Challenge rules and has all it needs to gain a competitive edge. This team also supervises the UKSEDS Team to ensure they are on track by providing support and guidance.
The UKSEDS (Lunar Rover) Team consists of younger students competing in the UKSEDS Lunar Rover Competition in July 2018 with a 5 kg rover, designed and manufactured on their own. Our aim is to allow students to get hands on experience at an early stage of their academic life so they may inspire similar projects in the future.
