    IIUM Roboteam

    Premium Engineering Hub

    IIUM Robotic Team or IIUM Roboteam for short, was founded in 2007. We started as a very small group and eventually growing into a big community consisting of engineering and ICT students. IIUM Roboteam has participated in several robotic competitions both local and international, and have won some of the competitions.

    Some of the previous competitions that we have joined were Robotic Contest (ROBOCON),Malaysian International Robotic Competitions (MIROC), Freescale, Asia Pacific Robotic Competition 2015 (APROC’15), Pathfinder, Malaysia Robotics Championship 2016 (MRC’16), Chem-E-Car competition, T-Robotics Underwater Challenge, Malaysia Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge (MAUVC), and Singapore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge (SAUVC).

    IIUM Roboteam is the best platform for the students to practice their engineering knowledge. All theories learnt in lectures are practiced through solving real life problems and through sharing of knowledge. Therefore, we strongly believe that the knowledge and achievements obtained shall not end up on this stage, rather to expand it in a wider scale so that it will reach all stages of the community, especially the younger generations, which are students in both primary and secondary level of studies.

    They will be exposed to most engineering branches and will absorb the idea of invention and innovation for future benefits. These activities will open eyes of the community about engineering and at the same time they will know that this is only the beginning of the very vast engineering world that lies in their future.
