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.

About Us

Technical skills and networking

Our society's focus is mainly around building members' technical skills through workshops and projects, sharing knowledge through member and industry talks, and networking.


Get Involved

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

What we do

All the following, and we're always open to member feedback about what events to run. Contact details are at the bottom of the page.


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.

Previous projects


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

See events


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.

Our workshops


We encouraged and supported members to compete in robotics competitions such as Micromouse and Droid Race

What have we competed in?


Some of our members who have moved on to bigger and brighter things, but with whom we've had the pleasure of talking tech and demolishing pizza.
