Welcome to Jesuit Robotics
The Jesuit Robotics team was established in 2003 as an extra-curricular competitive team. Since its formation, Jesuit Robotics has seen much success at various levels of competition.
While Jesuit Robotics initially competed in land-based ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) competitions, the team later moved on to compete at underwater competitions such as NURC (National Underwater Robotics Challenge) and MATE (Marine Advanced Technology Education) where it experienced increased success and opportunities to compete at the collegiate level. The realm of underwater robotics brought a whole new set of challenges which required more technical ingenuity, creativity, and expertise. Jesuit Robotics flourished in its new field of competition, taking first place at MATE in 2007 and 2011.
The team is divided into various departments, each with its own chain of command. The departments are technical writing, CADD (Computer Aided Design and Development), electronics and programming, build, website, publicity, and mission operations. Adult supervision is required, so a select few of qualified adults assist the team in projects. Jesuit Robotics has a state-of-the-art machine shop, complete with lathes, mills, belt sanders, bandsaws, and myriads of other machine tools.
