welcome to husky robotics

Husky Robotics is Registered Student Organization at the University of Washington building Mars Rovers to compete in the international Rover Challenge Series. We placed 2nd in the world at our most recent competition, outscoring teams from Shanghai to Warsaw.

Our team provides UW students the opportunity to develop their skills as part of a large interdisciplinary science and engineering project. We turn our member's passion for robotics, space, science and engineering into skills and experience, providing a unique opportunity for UW students to become experienced engineers.
