Competing teams

The student clubs have been working tirelessly to design and build innovative engineering projects for a chance to compete at a national and international level.

This year’s teams will be proudly showcasing the latest iterations of their ongoing projects:

AUvic

AUVic is an interdisciplinary student club that builds an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) for the annual RoboSub competition in San Diego. Come and check out Polaris, their most recent AUV and discover the world of underwater and marine engineering.

UVFR

The UVic Formula Motorsport team designs and builds a new formula-style race car each year. They compete annually at Formula SAE, the world’s largest collegiate design competition. Snap a picture on the driver seat of their latest race car.

Fix it 3491

FIX IT 3491 is a student team that designs robotics and competes annually worldwide. They have won awards such as the Inspire Award at the 2017 FTC World Championships. Don’t miss the opportunity to take control of their robot and driver bots.

Uvic Hybrid

UVic Hybrid are engineering students that design, build, and compete with hybrid electric vehicles. Discover their latest Eco car 2 or electric race car.

Uvic Rocketry

The UVic Rocketry Team designs and builds competitive sounding rockets. The team earned first place at the Payload Challenge during the 2017 Spaceport America Cup. Meet local rocket engineers and see firsthand a full rocket assembly.

Uvic Aero

UVic Aero is a team of about 45 engineering students that design, build and test Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). They will be showcasing their unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone.

UVic Submarine

UVic Submarine Racing Club is a multidisciplinary club run by students from the University of Victoria and Camosun College who design, manufacture, and build human-powered submarines. Come and scope out their racing submarine and chat about marine engineering.
