Mechatronics and Robotics Society

We are UQ's student robotics society.

A student-run organization within the University of Queensland, UQ MARS (Mechatronics and Robotics Society) is a community for anyone with a keen passion for the fields of robotics, mechatronics, and their applications. 

We aim to foster the development of the robotics skills of our members through a variety of extra-curricular activities, including competition teams, support workshops and social events. 

While primarily made up of engineering students, we welcome anyone looking to get involved!

What We Do


Our student-led teams work on projects that go beyond coursework. Participants gain first-hand experience designing, prototyping, building and programming in a wide variety of robotic activities.


UQ MARS is proud to host a wide variety of events focussed on improving skills and connecting our members. These include workshops, hackathons, games nights and more.


From programming to 3D modelling, UQ MARS has created a series of interactive online workshops. These can help you pick up some new engineering skills, and are viewable anytime, anywhere.


If you are looking to participate in one of our events or join a project, feel more than welcome to come along and see what the club is about.
